I'll be getting recommendations from two teachers that really like me and in whose classes I've done exceptionally well, so I'm certain they'll be excellent (if not outstanding). I fancy myself a pretty good writer with a unique imagination, so hopefully my essays will be creative and well-written.
A little more on me...
I'd say that I'm a pretty intellectually curious person. I'm the kind of guy that's always interested in the "why" and "how" of what heís learning (which can sometimes be frustrating for teachers, but hey, itís the kind of thing Iím really intrigued by). Iím also the kind of person who is often more interested in the implications of the question than those of the answer.
So, please let me know what you think! Thanks.
