"When applying to college we were told about a kid that applied to Harvard. Their prompt asked them to propose their own question and answer it. The kid asked himself "Do you play the trombone?" His answer: "No." Of course, he got in. I'm not sure what the moral of the story was…maybe to think outside the box?"  —sierrarose10 via reddit.com. We can only imagine this student also had one of these yearbook quotes that get people laughing.

"The old application for the Honors College had some required essays, and one year they asked, 'If you were a candy bar, what would you be and why?' It's been over 15 years, and I'll always remember the essay where the student answered, 'It would depend on whether or not I would want to be eaten.' He was admitted." —Lisa Baker, assistant director, admissions at Indiana University of Pennsylvania via quora.com
