    Current mood:Do I ever actually have moods?

    Rejected Graduate School Essays
    Lately, I've been applying to graduate schools. The following is a question that appears on many of the applications, as well as a response that, after careful consideration, I decided not to use:

    Have you ever been convicted of a Felony? If Yes, please explain.


    Well, I wanted to be valedictorian. However, by my senior year I was placed in the 51% of my class. So, I killed the remaining 49% of the class who had better grades then me, as well as three or four people with worse grades who I just didn't like. While this did result in a felony conviction, and a death sentence (Note: I am legally dead in the state of Nevada), I feel it showcases my commitment to academic excellence. Where else will you find a student willing to put his blood, sweat and tears, as well as the blood of many many others, into his academic achievements?'


    (By the way, I'm aware I may have already mentioned this little blurb to some of you, don't worry, more pointless shorts are on the way)
