I ran across these hilarious mistakes on college admissions essays submitted to Vassar and Bates colleges. You can find them here at Beliefnet.com.
I laughed. And then I cried, knowing how much the staff of the admissions officers were laughing–as they sent out the rejection letters.
Always, always proofread those essays, folks. And don’t leave them to your eyes alone. Have others read them–just to make sure you don’t leave any bloopers behind.
