So, when I applied to Emory, on my Common App essay, I used a little humor here and there to keep with the lighthearted tone of the entire work. I was talking about cooking and how it varies for me, so I included this remark:
"I never know what I may come up with. It may be something extremely delicious or something that tastes extremely horrid. It may be something life changing or something that gives a person diarrhea."
Do you think the ad com who is reading my essay will understand that it's an exaggeration? That it was used for comic purposes? By "it" I mean the last sentence - I am worried it might be a little inappropriate?
I don't know why I am worrying about it right now since I already turned in my app...but any help is much appreciated!
