Harry Potter - NYU supplement answer?

<p>NYU asks:</p>

<p>What intrigues you? Tell us about one work of art, scientific achievement, piece of literature, method of communication, or place in the world (a film, book, performance, website, event, location, etc.), and explain its significance to you.</p>

<p>Would it be pathetically mainstream and immature to write about the Harry Potter phenomenon and how it has captured the world's imagination?</p>

<p>Immature? No. Mainstream? It's popular but I doubt it's overused.</p>

<p>Thanks. I did think that if I could take something as common as Harry Potter and write an incredible and thought-provoking short essay, it would say more about me than if I wrote a mediocre essay about a profound topic.</p>
