AU of Cairo asked me to write an e-mail describing why I want to take a graduate level course in order to be approved for enrollment. I’ve been reading my draft over and over and over, and just realized that I have written a five paragraph essay explaining why I should be allowed to take this course. Who does that?
I guess it’s not really a five paragraph essay. I mean, sure, there are five paragraphs. I don’t, however, follow the standard formula. I do not have a clear thesis statement in my opening paragraph, nor do I have three clear ideas I try to prove. It just so happens that my thought progression presented itself in five paragraphs.
Before I continue on a rant about writing and grammar and essays and whatnot, I’ll end the nerdiness here.
