Waiting around for college acceptance letters can be one of the most stressful times in a young persons life. I personally remember sprinting home from school every day and going straight to the mailbox - only to have a mild panic attack when I would find it empty (funny enough I wound up getting my acceptance notification by email before it arrived in the post).

But it would understandably be a hard time for someone working in an admissions office as well. While they get to make a lot of dreams come true by saying yes, there are more dreams that they are forced to destroy by saying no. And that's the exact conflict Tina Fey's character has to deal with in the new dramedy Admission - and that's all before she discovers that she might have a teenage son.

We brought you the first trailer for the movie last month, but now a second has arrived and you can watch it below.

Directed by Paul Weitz (Little Fockers, About A Boy), Admission centers on a Princeton admissions officer named Portia Nathan (Fey) who learns from a former college classmate (Paul Rudd) that one of his students, Jeremiah (Nat Wolff), is the son she gave up for adoption years before. While the kid is smart, he is an unconventional student, and when Portia tries to bend the rules for him she finds that she could be risking her career. Michael Sheen, Wallace Shawn and Lily Tomlin co-star in the movie, which will be out on March 8th.
