Why I’m Leaving the MIT Admissions Blogs by Erick P. '17

it's been a good run.

yeah right!

Happy April Fool’s Day :)

No seriously it was like 2am when, after working on a serious blog post for a few hours, I realized what day it was. Smugness crept onto my face as I began thinking of what comical post I could come up with. Credit where credit’s due, the idea for this came from my friend and fellow blogger Vincent’s My Final Blogpost. He got me with it and I knew I would use it one day. Soooo worth the 365 day wait.

MIT Hacks are a staple of MIT culture. Some are serious, like the Phoebe Wang Memorial or Collier’s Cranes. Others are more comical, like Snowhenge or the Walter White Alchemist.

While I don’t have spelunking or car-lifting skills, I do have Photoshop, which is all I needed to “make” a few hacks of my own. Enjoy!
