Many people suggest showing drafts of YC applications to founders of YC companies. The whole point of the exercise is to help founders pass the YC filtering mechanism. I feel like it's a waste of everybody's time.

Instead, I am asking YC founders to do quick office hours with us and refer to YC if they liked what they saw. (which I have no control of).

Am I doing the wrong thing and going to get rejected for not polishing the application enough?

That sounds like a good plan.

Applications are open for YC Summer 2019
