Statements of Purpose and other torture techniques.

Rejected opening lines to my "Statement of Intent/Purpose" for grad school applications:

  • "Dear Wise, Very Beautiful, Nice-Smelling Admissions Committee..."
  • "Anguage-lay ascinates-fay ee-may."
  • "As a business student, I have seen firsthand what happens when undergrads are not taught to write properly, and it makes the baby Jesus cry."
  • "Please don't make me get a real job."
  • "For your consideration, I have attached my epic Dr. Who/Firefly crossover fanfiction..."
