Writing Sample Topic?

Postby 3|ink » Sat Oct 09, 2010 4:54 pm

I'm not sure if this falls within the realm of contraband, but can anyone remember the two things the writing sample wanted us to focus on?

I kinda fucked up and didn't focus on them. I was zonked out because I didn't get any sleep. I argued for the first Dr. I thought of pretty creative points, but I totally forgot to focus on the criteria. I don't remember what those criteria were, and I'd like to know if I at least was close to that.

I do remember what the criteria are, but I don't want to get banhammer'd. Are we okay to talk about the prompt?

Most schools get 1000s of applicants. How many times do you think they want to read essays about the Ortega's family vacation to see the eclipse and the epic confrontation between Dr. Bennely and Rickman.

I didn't really exactly write on the two criteria they were looking, but I'm not worried about it in anyway.

I choose bennely, but I thought of creative reasons that didn't require making up facts. Honestly, I thought my reasons were really creative and well thought.

I think Dr. B was the best choice, but you could have made a fledgling argument for Rickman.
