Probably so long as Jessica Cutler wasn't on the adcom board, you might have a shot. Plus, throw in a picture of yourself..that outta help in case she is.
As for my compelling reasons... I had one..my husband was being transferred. But I didn't use that in the personal statement. I think my comment was more along the lines of "another there are numerous personal reasona why I would give a (hypothetical) left nut to attend your school, none are more important than the oppotunities UniversityofKissingyourAss would provide me"
That got me into FSU, but then a last minute call from Maryland regarding my incomplete application and a sob story about my husband's transfer being changed from Tallahassee to D.C., and I got a call saying I was in, circumventing the system a bit. So I tend to believe my compelling reason, though not ultimately the reason for my acceptance, was significant in the WAY my acceptance came about...
