So, most days, Joe and I email back and fourth a little from work. Usually the messages don’t make it to my blog (in fact, this is the first time), but this one made me laugh so hard I had to share it with the world. Enjoy.
I need to write my essays for my grad school application. I am self-imposing a flexible deadline of Feb 13 with a hard deadline on March 1st. Because I am in my energetic go-getter attitude, I can tell you this. However, I may need your assistance in edging me towards actually doing it.
1. At this time in your life, please describe your current short term and long term educational and career goals. How will the Chicago Booth Summer Business Scholars Program help you to achieve these goals?
2. If the Admissions Committee were to interview one of your closest colleagues, classmates or professors, what aspect of your personality would this person say is especially important for the Admissions Committee to know?
3. (Optional) If there is further information that you believe would be helpful to the Admissions Committee, please provide it below.

My darling Kate,
I accept this task, such as it is, and shall undertake it with utmost regard for your goals. I assure you I will not falter under adversity and will see it through, to whatever end.
