    Ok, I know you guys are all going to make fun of me for this... but I was reading in one of the threads that one student got asked by Johns Hopkins in an interview to give one 4-letter word to describe him/her.

    Well, that question really scared me because I could't think of anything... so I searched google and found this marvelous website were you can get all kinds of words fitting strange requirements like "4-letter," "3-letter," "beginning with Q," etc...

    Check it out... you might want to give it a glance before an interview.

    :laugh: ....for a second there, i thought you meant 4-letter word as in a curse word... that's actually much more interesting, don't you think?? :laugh:

    lol, i just posted about this in another thread...i had a friend who actually got asked this. He couldn't think of any good four-letter words to say, so he said "umm...nice?"

    the interviewer silently scribbled something down.

    later he stopped and said, "wait, can I change it? I want to say, 'open'" The interview thought a moment, and said, "No, can't change it now."

    He didn't get into that school - although the interview might not be the only reason.

    some good ones i can think of: (note: they don't specify ADJECTIVES) you can desribe yourself with a noun if it fits.

    -will (as in, willpower)
    -hope (as in, optimistic)
    -duty (as in, committment)
    -love (as in, compassion)

    see? it's not as hard if you (to use a phrase I hate) "think outside the box" ;)
