For cute’s sake – don’t write an essay about kittens just because you read on the web that a student was accepted to the Ivies by describing the world through her cute kitten’s eyes.

And besides, you can bet that a ton of kids reading the same essay figured it would work for them, too. That’s a lot of essays about kittens circulating through college admission offices.
Hmm … imagine the delight of the people reading them. Maybe that year there were three categories --– accepted, rejected and kitten. Me-ouch!
