Do You Have An Answer?

Before someone be all like OMG YOU STOLE THESE!!! yes I got these questions from Yahoo News… which is usually only good for reading some crazy comments people make… but these here are crazy college application questions… and I hope it’s all for real because they’re just too awesome… while I was reading it I couldn’t help but wonder what I would say in response… and see that’s what they need more of in the world… making people think outside the box and write about stuff you normally wouldn’t… so of course I had to share…

“Have you ever walked through the aisles of a warehouse store like Costco or Sam’s Club and wondered who would buy a jar of mustard a foot and a half tall? We’ve bought it, but it didn’t stop us from wondering about other things, like absurd eating contests, impulse buys, excess, unimagined uses for mustard, storage, preservatives, notions of bigness…and dozens of other ideas both silly and serious. Write an essay somehow inspired by super-huge mustard.”

“If you could choose to be raised by robots, dinosaurs, or aliens, who would you pick? Why?”

“Make a bold prediction about something in the year 2020 that no one else has made a bold prediction about.”

“You have just finished your three hundred page autobiography. Please submit page 217.”

“Using a piece of wire, a Hopkins car window sticker, an egg carton, and any inexpensive hardware store item, create something that would solve a problem. Tell us about your creation, but don’t worry; we won’t require proof that it works!”

“Tell us about the most embarrassing moment of your life.”

“So where is Waldo, really?”

“Create a short story using one of these topics: ‘The End of MTV,’ ‘Confessions of a Middle School Bully,’ ‘The Professor Disappeared’ or ‘The Mysterious Lab.'”

“St. Mary’s College is casting for the incoming class. Send us your audition tape via the Web or DVD. Please provide us with the site for posting. Selection of this option will stand as your college essay. Consider your audience.”

“Sartre said, ‘Hell is other people,’ but Streisand sang, ‘People who need people/Are the luckiest people in the world.’ With whom do you agree and why?”
