A little secret: We don't care that much about the content of your 
application. Just write some nonsense but make a decent effort to make 
it look good. That will make Google happy.

We will be judging you primarily on this qualification task. That will 
test the stuff we really care about.

Absolutely. According to the timeline, it looks like roughly April 14 
will be our deadline since all student-mentor matches must be made by 
April 15.

Looks like you have some more time.
