As I'm writing my college entrance essays, I'm getting one particular one thoroughly critiqued, because it's also a school project. One person commented in particular that they had no idea what I meant when I mentioned the Illuminati.
But this kid isn't my intended audience, you see. My intended audience is the college application readers. Would a college application reader be up to date on conspiracy theories?
There is a good chance your application will be rejected because you "know too much".

Yeah, but this essay specifically mentions the conspiracy theory kind. Pretty much it's in a list of conspiracies, from the top tier kind, (Illuminati and their NWO) to the bottom tier kind (it has no value except to get kids to shut up). According to you, Night, do you think they would get hung up on it if they don't know what the Illuminati is? There are two other examples alongside it, both pretty easy to understand.
Keep it in, it is not for you to guess what they know and don't know... you might add a foot note with a reference or explanation if it is particularly obsure.
