    Wonder how long it took INTJ123's college application readers to realise they were dealing with a nut.

    I have a BSc and I don't know what the Illuminati is, except that it's mentioned by conspiracy theorists...doesn't seem very relevant to my life.

    Then again, I have very little interest in history or conspiracy theories so that may be why I haven't bothered reading about them.

    I wouldn't do this. Assuming they know about the Illuminati is a HUGE assumption.

    There is a good chance your application will be rejected because you "know too much".

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.

    INTJ123's paranoid posts about "Jew world domination" landed in the graveyard of bigotry, never to be resurrected.

    They probably would have heard of it, but they might have it labelled under conspiracy nut. It's a gamble to use it.
