Personal Statement / Re: Funniest word in your PS
« on: September 30, 2004, 10:27:25 PM »
Did we say that names count?  If so, I've got Wollongong (a city in Australia).  If not, then "nanotubes."  I'm a dork...but the rest of me is good! I'll show you!

Woah...slow down...that 7% might not be right.  I take it all back.

Isn't it something like 1/8?  If you're 1/8 Mexican, that qualifies you as Mexican?  That's a number I remember hearing years ago, so don't quote me.

Is there a place where we can see numbers on this stuff?  I know that 7% of lawyers are minorities, but since I don't have a clear picture of how a minority is defined, that stat doesn't mean much.

Personal Statement / Re: quotation in PS

Zap, it makes me very happy that you're quoting RATM (do you listen to Audioslave at all?).  Just as long as you don't quote, "F*ck you, I won't do what you tell me."   :D 

Not sure if I have any opinions whether it is gimmicky or high-schoolish.  I don't really remember hs, so I'm not an expert on what is high-schoolish.  My feeling is that one sentence won't kill a well written paper.  If you have cohesion and flow, she'll be right.

What I was wondering was what the best way to introduce a quote, in say the intro paragraph.  I've seen quotes used in many ps, and they work if used appropriately.

Oh, and good writers borrow...great writers steal outright.

I got it while watching TV one night, flipping channels.  There's the catholic station lodged between CMT and VH1.  THe guy's name is Bishop Fulton J. Sheen.  Ever heard of him?  Me neither.

Personal Statement / quotation in PS
« on: September 24, 2004, 06:29:08 PM »
What's the best way to start a PS with a quotation?  Should I say where I heard it?  Or should I just introduce an idea and use it as supporting material?

Thanks,

Rishi

>>Remember the Alamo!  You lost.

Swifty, you know I got your back cuz of the U2 thing, but this ain't funny, dude.  Lots of good people died there, including a heap of Tennessee volunteers.

Texans don't practice pluralism as we all would like.  That's why we are so quick to defend our state, etc.  There's some pride here...hubris, even?

I'm not applying anywhere in the state because I need to get away...see new things and new people.  Austin is an oasis of liberalism in a desert of right-wing, Christian conservatism.  But that just means there's better public transporation than in H-town or Big D.  Plus, I went there for UG, so...

Can't say that I do.  But then again, my graduating class was about 1300.
