We’d tried to get to this sooner but, alas, those deadlines are here and we’ve been busy busy busy in Snarkville trying to get help to you panicking Brave Supplicants. We’re reading lots of essays and resumes and we’re starting to see some good work coming in from a lot of you!

Before we get into the actual submission received from this brave Brave Supplicant in response to our invite for potentially

Heck, we also have a whole page of HBS MBA application tips that you don’t even have to pay a cent for.
We even wrote about some of these issues only a few weeks ago — scrolling down just a bit on the main page of the blahg would pop this headline up: Let’s talk about Harvard’s essay
So when we get a comment like this, it just makes us go “hmmm” (and not a “hmmm maybe i’ll have ice cream” type hmmm but more like this type of “hmmm” if you know what we mean):
