My Google-fu is weak today. A few years back, someone forwarded me an essay that was allegedly written as a college entrance essay. It was a bunch of preposterous statements that couldn't possibly be true (sort of like I've climbed Everest unassisted, developed a cure for cancer, toured the world with my rock band, etc.) and ended with a line like "but I haven't yet attended college". I'm helping someone write an essay right now, and I wanted to use that one for comic relief/inspiration, but I can't find it online for the life of me. Any help? Thanks!
