Gimmicky answers in college applications have their place, because they demonstrate a person’s willingness to do something trivial, stupid and creative, all at the same time. That’s a useful skill.

Publishing previous applications eliminates most gimmicks from reuse. This is why blogs and YouTube videos keep getting better.
