Don't want the admissions people to find out that an adult helped you on your college essay? Here are topics, words and punctutation symbols to avoid:
- Acid Reflux
- Ponzi schemes
- Backslashes/forward slashes
- Chemical peels
- Farmers Markets
- Back trouble
- How your contractor ripped you off on your outdoor firepit
- The words "aforementioned" and "notwithstanding'; in fact, I would think twice about any compound word other than "snowman."
Good luck – you still have over 72 hours. A friend of CJ's reports that he has been holed up for four days in a hotel room in a ski resort trying to finish his apps. Good luck to him and all the aforementioned.
