Thanks for crushing my dreams. I wish I could say mean things to you, but I can't. I'm not that kind of person. I will say this though: You will regret this decision because you rejected someone who has more promise and potential than anyone out there. I may not currently hold a PhD. I may not have had sex for money and then subsequently used myself as a "anti-prostitution" advocate. I may not have been a dumb kid and thought about selling drugs and was only saved when the supplier did not show up. But I am a motivated and smart person who has tried hard in the past and is still trying really hard in the present to further myself. You may think my flaw is that I never had learn a lesson from do anything shady and unethical, but I would say that THAT is my greatest strength: I NEVER allowed myself be in any unethical positions because I did the right thing always. In short, I may not have the greatest comeback or sob story, but I have always been running long and hard towards my goals. I think those who have never wavered from their path are better than those who have even if they came back strong because the former group had the decency to never let ever themselves falter. Thanks again for your consideration, but you'll regret that decision.
Keeping it classy. I'll save that for my Stanford ding.
