Re: [Raysen] Another SOP question
[In reply to]
Please don't take this personally, but if you are somebody famous then why did you need to "point it out" in your SOP? Wouldn't your fame make you inherently recognizable to any admissions committee? Either way, your strategy makes me giggle a little bit. Perhaps only because I'm tired of working on applications and this incredibly long paper on European Modernism I'm completing, I've drank entirely too much coffee today and oh, I'm not famous -- though I am less worried about that then other aspects of my application.
I think I might write a sentence in my SOP that states just that: "By the way, in case you're wondering, I am completely not-famous. Utterly mundane. There is nothing remarkable about me in the least... " Of course, I'm kidding.
Who is the illustrious Raysen? Are you Chelsea Clinton, Paris Hilton, Toni Morrison, MacCauley Culkin, a former Mousketeer, or an American Idol reject? As stated before on this thread, inquiring minds want to know.
Either way, I hope your fame is related somehow to your good works and writing rather than your celebrity or spectacle.
Again, best of luck to everyone applying.
