A funny and witty college entrance essay from a hopeful NYU student
..funny essay...though i don't think these will work anymore.....
Crappy essay that is NOT what colleges look for.
I get the distinct feeling this was taken from another source without attribution.
definite plagiarizing on the 'original.'
but i liked the few changes.
Years ago I discovered the meaning of life but forgot to write it down.
Ironically, while this makes you laugh; the seriousness is neatly hidden but accessible for anybody who wants to succeed. Up at the top, it says the applicant was accepted; a proof that audacity gets you to places, and that psuedo-arrogance is a virtue.
I didn't need a college entrance essay; I got into a public school. But I'm sure it would have involved all of my more impressive endeavors, like...um...well, I've gotten A's on papers and tests before. That's worth something, right?
lots of comma splices, however.
I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for Cuban refugees, I write award-winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally, I tread water for three days in a row. I woo women with my sensuous and godlike trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook Thirty-Minute Brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru.
Funny. Good message: have a pair (take chances, in other words).
