Admissions essay leak 2013
The 2013 Admissions Essay Leak was the latest in a long line of prefrosh Facebook group follies. About 70 apple-cheeked admitted students uploaded their college application essays to a public Google Drive folder. Gawker and IvyGate published and added derisive comments about them. It was surely pretty obnoxious for the first-years to post them, but a whole other thing entirely for the media to share and mock them.
Two days after, one of the most obnoxious kids wrote a post for xoJane. A representatively obnoxious sentence from that is: "From my playwriting experience, I was comfortable using a script as a medium for my progression of thoughts on this topic."
