College Student Gets Perfect Grade on Essay About ‘Fight Club’

She took a risk...and it paid off

There are people who blatantly break the rules, and then there are people who bend them just enough to squeak by. That’s exactly what Allison Garrett did. She was assigned an essay by her college professor to “write a review of a movie that we had seen”.

Her essay about ‘Fight Club’ was simply: “The first rule of Fight Club is…you do not talk about Fight Club.’ And at the bottom, she added ‘That’s it. That’s my essay.’”

Her professor decided she deserved a perfect grade for the essay since it gave him a laugh…but also warned her this sort of thing may not work with other professors.
