Have you ever stayed up all night, revising a college application/essay right before the deadline? I didn't: I dropped out as a freshman (a story for another time). Writing an application loaded with this much upside is a new experience for me!
Maybe that's why I'm obsessing over my Ycombinator application this weekend. I read that YC gets 15,000 - 20,000 applications per batch. The first round of reviewers might read 200 applications/day (oof). Most applications are discarded in 30 seconds (double-oof).
What should I change to keep my YC app from being thrown out?
I would appreciate your feedback, no matter who you are! I've enabled comments on my draft - if you have 5 minutes to skim. If you prefer email, send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org
