Some U.S. colleges have started asking unusual personal questions on their application forms.  For instance, Colombia University is asking applicants to describe “the best movie of all time”. Emory U asks, “What is your favorite ride at the amusement park and how does that reflect your approach to life?”. And the University of Maryland asks applicants to share their “favorite thing about last Tuesday”. School officials say it lets them get to know more about students than is reflected in their academic records. 

- Why don’t they just look at the kids facebook pages?  They’ll find out answers to all those questions and see how the students look naked, too!  

- NOTE:  If you list Rollar Coaster as your favorite ride, you’re immediately accepted in the “Stock Broker” program. 




- Most applicants who listed “Animal House” as the greatest movie of all time ended up going to Ohio State.
