Okay, I can't believe this.

One of my best friends knows somebody (a guy) that got accepted into Harvard a couple years ago. I have no clue what the person's stats were, I can imagine they must have been phenomenal. Because his entire essay was, "I am terse."


Gahhh.. No lie either. Geez, I wish I could pull that off.

sounds interesting. Was the essay possibly accompanied by a video of the guy doing an interpretive dance to a bongo drum soundtrack?

sounds ... like a lie.

unless there was some other part of the application that blew the admissions staff away (international science olympiad medal?), that's pretty much bs.

It could have been his "optional" essay. I just submitted a list of books I read in the past year with snarky VH1esque commentary.
