Great article over at 74. I agree that ChatGPT should be discussed rather than banned, and that the entrance essay requirement should be supplemented, eg by interviews. It seems to me, though, that ChatGPT could help a student get started on the essay . In my experience students feel they have to say they are "passionate" about everything. Perhaps ChatGPT could help them structure their essay and come up with different ways of expressing their strengths and interests.
