She locks up Parcoursup as a recipe

Education – Russian chocolate cream cake does harm. In order to test the limits of the program, a high school student from Pau played a funny trick on the Parcoursup platform, intended to collect and manage the personalization desires of future higher education students.

Lucile Castigbo, a senior at St. John Perse High School, probably didn’t expect such fallout from her idea. His extended steps to offer his wishes have been criticized, and Parcoursup has been cornered by the student, she revealed in the first video posted to her TikTok account on April 7.

Having inadvertently chosen an institution she did not intend to apply to, Lucille had the idea to submit two applications: one to Purdue University and one to Bayonne University. But only one of the two was a real cover letter. The other letter was just a recipe for a cake: Russian cream praline, againstAs you can see in the video at the top of the article.

All this is embellished with a catchy phrase that makes the difference as she writes herself on TikTok. “English cuisine: if it is cold it is soup, and if it is hot it is beer. As French cuisine is more precise, I would like to share with you the traditional French recipe: Russian”, was it written as such at the beginning of the letter, referring to Colucci.

“Parcoursup system problem”

With over 2.2 million views on the social network, Lucièle’s video caught the eye. In a second video uploaded on June 3, she explained that after a short while on the queue, her wish along with the booby-trapped cover letter was accepted without the slightest problem.

The young woman also captivated BFMTV on Tuesday, June 28, to explain the process behind the trap she set at Parcoursup. “I enrolled in Parcoursup in March for the Faculty of Law in Bordeaux […] I wanted to know if I would be accepted and if we really looked at our cover letters. Suddenly, it wasn’t the case, as I was accepted with a completely zero,” notes the high school student who nonetheless determines she has a good profile.

It appears that we do not read the letters. We spend a lot of time doing useless things. I don’t think it’s the colleges’ fault, adds La Paloise, however, it’s Parcoursup’s fault because universities can’t handle so many applications. […] It’s the Parcoursup system that has a problem.”

With this dual choice, the 18-year-old high school student finally chose Bayonne University to start her higher education and pursue her dream of becoming a lawyer. At the moment, no reaction has been announced from the Purdue University administration.
