a joke in my college essay?

<p>okay so I'm writing my personal essay about how a girl has influenced me as I grew up. I'm thinking about putting at the end of it "Oh, and there's no need to look through stacks of paper for this amazing individual. She's already a freshman in college."</p>

<p>And I know, the essay is about me and not her.</p>

<p>It's not that funny...I wouldn't.</p>

<p>I don't find it funny so I wouldn't. If the joke is funny and not the last sentence of your essay, then maybe. However, this one isn't funny, sorry.</p>

<p>If you are asking us if we think it's funny then you shouldn't put it in because you have doubt in your mind. Putting humor in your essay should be natural and genuine. Don't do it if you aren't a funny person</p>
