Essay Scandal at Columbia University

A sort of scandal erupted around Columbia University's admissions essays this year - when a file in which accepted students' application essays got picked up & went viral - until the site was taken down. Read the story - and some of the essays - here. BTW: Columbia accepted a slender 6.9% of its applicants this year.

  1. It is horrible. I can imagine rather well how hard it was to write a college essay which you regard as the one suitable for being sent to the Admission Board. I think that such an issu should be taken more seriously.
