When I first applied to college as a senior in high school, I didn’t get into a single college. I had to wait a whole year and then enroll. I asked my high school guidance counselor what the problem was and she said it was my admissions essay.
I dug through some old papers and I found it. I still don’t see what the problem is with the essay. I still think it’s pretty good…dare I say, moving. I’ve reprinted it here. See for yourself:

1. Who from history would you like to meet and why?
The person I’d like to most meet from history is Marilyn Monroe because I’d like to see if she would be down for a good bone session. Thank you. When do I start stupid college?
