I just thought I'd let you know that you guys have a nice personal shout-out in one of my University of Virginia essays. The topics was 'Write about something that you pretend not to like or vice versa' and so I wrote about UG, mainly the Pit.

Feel warm and fuzzy
Btw, anyone else applying there?


Edit: Well, you asked -

I secretly like a guitar-related website’s forums. In fact, I’m rather “famous” on the site. It is heavily populated by pubescent males, which would explain why any moderately attractive female could easily gain attention, along with why most of these females leave. The off-topic forum is filled with crude humor and is simply not a place of class, while many of the music-related sections are up to the brim with elitist fans and musicians ready to pounce on new members. One could understand why I’m not especially proud of being a well-known participant. However, there is more to the membership than meets the eye. At my fingertips are the opinions of people worldwide. Along with the typical teenage male are insightful, intelligent users from many different backgrounds and with different aspirations, all bringing their own culture and vitality to the screen. However, each individual, regardless of background, plays an important role. This site provides me with a community to study, small enough to connect with but large enough to be diverse. Any questions asked or topics discussed can reach a whole plethora of people, all teeming with serious or amusing answers, all with different intentions and relations. I have been able to understand the global population more fully just by communicating regularly in this forum. Just like the site itself, there is more to each user than meets the eye. Even the most immature, agitating member can turn out to be a witty, sympathetic prodigy; it’s just the purpose of his conversation that rules his attitude. The site has opened my eyes to a world generally shut away from the feminine grasps of society and has changed my perspective on the human social spectra. However, I do still get annoyed sometimes and thus pretend to dislike it.

I can picture that as a monologue at the end of an epic film, where the protagonist finally realises the true meaning and nature of the pit, and the intricate beauty behind what at first meets the eye...

*shoots self*

Great. You should make a novel, and on the cover, a HUGE ****ING LOL WUT PEAR.

edit: That would be Epic

I think it would be really funny if whoever is assessing my application actually uses UG and recognizes what the essay is about, lol.

Great essay, and indeed very true. I certainly would have never thought to mention this place in any of my apps.

^did tina fey go to VT? no.

i was thinking about mentioning the pit. but then i got paranoid and thought that the admissions counselors would get a hold of the pit and send me a letter of rejection asap.

Sent from my iPad.
#33
That's great. XD

I'm pretty sure they generally look up these essays for plagiarism though. In your case, however, it will only make it more authentic when they do, in fact, find it in an off-topic section of a guitar site. XD

I'd consider editing it out in a few days though if I were you - just on the off chance that that does happen, the admissions committee could look up your post history and stuff.

I may just be acting overly paranoid though, and I don't mean to be a downer. Good luck, I hope you get in. I'm wrapping up an app essay at the moment as well; nothing like waiting until four hours before it's due. XD

I put U-G as my favorite website for my Stanford app. Lord knows I won't get in any way, but who knows?

But OP, I am not brave enough to write an entire essay on the pit, props.

Edit: Well, you asked -

I secretly like a guitar-related website’s forums. In fact, I’m rather “famous” on the site. It is heavily populated by pubescent males, which would explain why any moderately attractive female could easily gain attention, along with why most of these females leave. The off-topic forum is filled with crude humor and is simply not a place of class, while many of the music-related sections are up to the brim with elitist fans and musicians ready to pounce on new members. One could understand why I’m not especially proud of being a well-known participant. However, there is more to the membership than meets the eye. At my fingertips are the opinions of people worldwide. Along with the typical teenage male are insightful, intelligent users from many different backgrounds and with different aspirations, all bringing their own culture and vitality to the screen. However, each individual, regardless of background, plays an important role. This site provides me with a community to study, small enough to connect with but large enough to be diverse. Any questions asked or topics discussed can reach a whole plethora of people, all teeming with serious or amusing answers, all with different intentions and relations. I have been able to understand the global population more fully just by communicating regularly in this forum. Just like the site itself, there is more to each user than meets the eye. Even the most immature, agitating member can turn out to be a witty, sympathetic prodigy; it’s just the purpose of his conversation that rules his attitude. The site has opened my eyes to a world generally shut away from the feminine grasps of society and has changed my perspective on the human social spectra. However, I do still get annoyed sometimes and thus pretend to dislike it.


This is good. I hate over half of the people on this forum lol. Yet I keep coming back
#37
and to think I simply wrote in my application essays about the usual generic stuff, oh what I missed out on!

but srsly, not bad.
#39
if you didn't include any parts with rape, cumming blood or fap, than you'll definately get in.
