    Man, I pulled some cheesy **** :laugh:

    Haha, I remember talking to one of the deans at my school who used to teach chemistry and be on the pre-med committee about applying to med schools and his first advice was, "Man, make sure your personal statement is original. And don't start it with a quotation. You wouldn't believe how many of those damn things I've had to read that start with a quotation and all sound the same." I couldn't believe anyone really did that anymore. My middle school and high school teachers use to tell us to stop doing that way back in the day. I wonder who invented that strategy. I mean, as badly as it is cliched now, it had a lot of good years in it.
