I bet mine was cheesier
Mine had to be the worst. I caught a grammatical mistake in it a couple weeks later. I was so burnt out by the time I submitted Yale, I definitely did not put my best foot forward.
You know how there are all these books of "the college essays that got kids into harvard and princeton!", there really should be a book of 250s. I'd actually read it, because the range and variety of these things has to be pretty incredible. And one minor grammar mistake, unless it's a true howler, shouldn't hurt you.
