Colleges view your SAT essay?!

<p>I got an 800 on writing and scored an 11 on the essay. My essay was rather humorous and I discussed Pitbull's influence on South Africa for the December essay. My counselor is now telling me that in ADDITION to your personal essay, they read your SAT to verify that your personal essay was actually written by you. My chance would be obliterated... Should I retake so there is a chance that they won't see it??</p>

<p>This is not a big deal.</p>

<p>What's the big deal? They just want to make sure that a kid that writes a 6 total essay on the SAT, doesn't get someone else to write a perfect app essay that puts people to tears. They content of your SAT essay doesn't even matter since it was rated highly and was used (judging by the 11), well in context of the question asked.</p>
