Angry Birds in College Essay?

<p>Im writing about Angry Birds in one of my essays but I'm not sure how much detail I need to devote to explaining it. Will the adcoms be familiar with Angry Birds or do I need to explain it thoroughly? It takes up a lot of my word count...</p>

Will the adcoms be familiar with Angry Birds


Lol we have no way of knowing. It depends on who is reading it. But just in case, you may want to explain it briefly.</p>

<p>And how will using lots of your word count to explain angry birds leave the committee anxious to get you on campus?</p>

<p>I still think an explanation of at least one sentence is necessary. You don't want to leave them completely confused and scratching their heads. Just something simple like "a popular trajectory game played on cell phones the world over" or something like.</p>

<p>What you need to say depends why you're referencing Angry Birds. However, I think you can be pretty confident that ad-coms, who deal with thousands of kids world-wide, know what Angry Birds is. Many of them probably even have the app on their iPhones.</p>

<p>lol...just found out what angry birds is from my 5 year old nephew over xmas. Naturally, I asked why the birds were angry and I believe his response was because the pigs stole their eggs. He couldn't answer my follow up as to why pigs would steal bird eggs.</p>

<p>I agree with born2dance. You don't want to go into too much detail because the chances are high they'll already know what it is and you don't want to waste word count or bore them, but at the same time, it's good to have a short explanation just in case.</p>
