I never had to write a letter or essay. Just an application and transcript, if I recall.

Don't you also have to write an essay or a Statement of Purpose ? Or is that what you're talking about ?

I think the only reason I got accepted into Grad School was because I wrote a very "clever" SoP, heh heh. :rolleyes:

Its actually not that bad guys. Just write down why you really want to go to college. Try to write your own answer, not "because I want a good job". They are looking for something that makes you unique.

Not just why you want to go to college, but why you want to go to THEIR college. :wink: That is, if you're writing to a specific school.
