Rowling and “Real Freedom?” by David Wallace, and an article titled “The 4-Stage Response to Low Student Achievement” by John Lemuel, all have several aspects of education in common and provide knowledge and inspiration about the real idea and necessity for education.
This is a funny read, very clever and just entertaining! If you asked a college coach or anyone else if you should submit this essay, they would say no!!! Maybe he had an equally amazing gpa and perfect sat scores etc….and he had room to take a risk!
As for capitalization, now I find it rather helpful. Someone had a funny post on that subject which I can’t find but here some examples. Take for instance the difference between:
Die Spinnen (the spiders)
Die spinnen (they are goofing off)
Er hat in Berlin liebe Genossen (he has dear associates/colleagues/commrades in Berlin)
Er hat in Berlin Liebe genossen (In Berlin he enjoyed being in love)
I guess in English we derive the correct meaning in context rather than needing the capitalization of the noun. But German is a very precise language.
Whether you went to a community college, transferred here from another four-year school or started your freshman year in the dorms near the entrance of this campus, we are finally finishing together....
The essay actually does say a lot about him. It shows he is witty, cynical, funny, and creative. It also shows that he is brave, because he is not afraid to break the conventions of a typical college essay. The rest of his application would have said what clubs he was in, his grades, and the rest of the things most people talk about in their essays. I agree that it would likely be obvious if a student were to emulate this style exactly, but claiming the essay “says little about the applicant” is rather naive.
