Using the f-word in your PS

Postby TigerHawk » Tue Apr 09, 2013 10:07 pm

I've been told that your first paragraph needs to be eye catching to schools.

What if I drop the f-word in the opening sentence? I'll think of a way to do it professionally, but I was wondering if you guys think it's too risky.

Might as well use the C word and really shock some adcomms. Solid strategy, bro.

Personally a "catchy" and "risqué" PS is more of a risk than anything.

When it comes down to it, they only care about your numbers.

If its a super reach school - YOLO!?

If you only use it one time, you're doing it wrong. You should at least use it one time for every vowel you have.
