Essays and Jokes, and How they are Similar

A number of you are now starting to write the four short essays for UGA, either because your decision was deferred or because you are finishing up your Regular Decision application. As such, here is some advice on good essays, and how telling a joke well and writing a good essay are similar. Just to be clear, I am not saying to include any jokes in your essays, but instead how the the two creative processes (joke-telling and essay writing) are similar.This is my first attempt at a video blog post, I hope you enjoy it. As you can probably guess, I will be cringing and wondering if that is really how I look, and if my voice really sounds like that to everyone.

Go Dawgs!
