Okay to refer to "you"?

Postby taf889 » Sun Sep 09, 2012 6:10 pm

At the end of my Ps, i want to address the ad comm. I'm wondering if it's acceptable in this context to say 'You', or if i should just find another way to say it.

NOW...to YOU, Mr. AdComm. To YOU, I direct the most meaningful part of this PS! I know where YOU live..where your children live. Please, please, will YOU accept me? I WANT in at your phenomenal institution! I think if my application is lacking in anything, I just want to make sure YOU know I provide other...*cough*...personal favors, based on your requests. Monetary...or......otherwise.

Thank YOU, Mr. AdComm. And if it is a Ms. AdComm, believe me, I can be YOUR delight.
