Well, they can’t do that now.
Hopefully you’ve matured beyond the point where your parents are doing everything for you. But in case you haven’t, then here’s a reminder:
Your parents cannot write your bschool essays for you.
If you’re so paralyzed by the thought of doing something for yourself, that you need to ask Daddy to help, then you’re not ready for bschool.
Or, if your parents are so overbearing and domineering that they think they know what’s best for you, and they insist to do things like write your apps, then it’s time to
get a new set of parents sit down and talk to them. Set some boundaries, buddy. Take some control over your life.
Not only is it unethical, it’s just not healthy.
Hopefully they’re no longer wiping your ass when you take a crap, either.
