This is another one of those writing tips post that most people won’t understand when they read it casually as part of our daily posting here on the blahg.
For that, we apologize – sort of. We like to raise these more sophisticated issues here publicly on the blahg, in order to plant the seed in you BSers’ minds. That way, when you get feedback in an essay review that you’ve done the “improbable attribution thing” you remember that you heard that before, and when you come back and read this post, it makes sense – because you have had the experience of making this mistake in your writing.
This comes up A LOT with Harvard, and also Stanford too. (Yes we know that those deadlines are in the past — wahoo if you got your apps in!! There are still many more essays to write for many more people, and this issue comes up all the time so it’s worth talking about it right now, here today.)
