Writing Samples Request


Recommended Posts

How good of a program are we talking? lol

The most important bit is certainly the writing sample. I have a 4.0 GPA and a near perfect GRE (170, 168, 5.5), but I didn't get into any top 20 programs. I wrote my writing sample in 3 weeks before the deadline, so it's not my best work. But it did get me 3 acceptances and 4 wait lists, with some decent schools in there.

Wow, that's kind of insane. 

Yea. It was a brutal 3-4 weeks. I didn't put my best foot forward for various personal reasons, but I was happy to have the success I did given the situation. I have certainly played the "what-if" game a lot in the past 3 months. Moral of the story: don't do what I did!
