<p>I thought my son's essay was cute, but it fit in with the rest of his application which screamed I am a computer geek, take me anyway. (They did.) He started off with a bunch of nonsense sentences and then explained that they were compiled using a computer program that took exemplary essays from the web. Then he talked about how he'd rather write a computer program than an essay.</p>

<p>^ Wow I want to meet your son! [this is the sort of reaction I think we should all try to reach for when writing our essays]</p>
