My son wrote the “Grandparent” essay. Well make that the great-grandparent essay. It started with a humorous scene related to the funeral and went on to demonstrate the life-lessons learned from the great-grandparent with a couple of real examples of where my son used those lessons. It was engaging, funny and poignant and a real insight into my son and what he values. It (together with his accomplishments) earned him a likely letter to Harvard and a spot at his first-choice, where he chose to attend. It is not the topic but the delivery.
