<p>btw: I've been thinking about submitting something like that to edodo for months now :p finally had the time to make it.</p>

<p>Anyone else go through times like those when they wanted to rip their peer's heads off? :) Things like that seriously got to me some times, haha.</p>

<p>That's sweet! I think you should send it to edodo, or at least keep at it and become one of them.</p>

<p>I was chuckling over a friend the other day--she was bemoning the "huge" amount of work her dd was going through to apply to a state school... I just smiled...</p>

<p>Yeah...and then there are those of us who are crazy enough to go through it all twice...</p>

<p>What's really frustrating is when the people whose parents fill out everything but the essays on the common app complain about their extensive application process...I can empathize with the riping off heads...</p>

<p>This is actually really funny and true too. Indeed i found so many people complaining about civilian college applications. Sometimes i explain that applying to a service academy is like applying to 4 civilian colleges at once cause you have your 3 (somtimes more) sources of nomination plus the actual academy (which contains far more than a regular civvy college would).</p>

<p>Deffinately edodo worthy... although since its not actually about being IN the academy im not sure.</p>

<p>Either way...props.</p>

<p>Brilliant. Boils my blood when I used to hear my friends complain and complain about all the "essays" they were spending hours to write...then I'd see a 2 paragraph thing on "why I'm special!". Good Work!</p>

<p>MM, i need some good head rippage now too. "OMG I worked so long last night on my essay." O ya, my four essays were fun too, wait, that's 12 with my senator, wait wait, 14 with other MOC, nonono, 17 with ROTC, nope, 18 with Georgia Tech. </p>

<p>They need a kick in the nads.</p>

<p>Ya what was Cornyn's deal with the 8 or 9 essay questions?</p>

<p>I dunno, that was insane. But I cant complain, I got his nom. :D</p>

<p>...i appreciated Cornyn's application, all 8 questions & essay to the highest degree.... </p>

<p>haha, love the cartoon, but i must admit, civilian college apps, while they may not need quite the...endurance as the military ones, they are rather extensive in certain areas (ie: essays down to the amount of fudging spaces there are), plus, i think the academy apps (usafa & usna) were..."easier" in a sense that they were far more formulaic than the civilian ones.</p>

<p>I agree, and the 4 essays for the academy were not your regular essays. They were much shorter.</p>

<p>For me, i didn't feel that bad doing the applications. I wanted the academy so bad, that I'm excited to do them, while I don't really care about other universities. It paid off tho.</p>

<p>In addition, I copied and pasted alot of essays for my civillian colleges. Most of them were so ambigious.</p>

<p>They published it, whoohoo ! =)

<p>That's sick!! You're my hero!</p>

<p>AndyJ - I see you even got your first "KYS" in the Rumor Mill.</p>

<p>I think their just jealous that an almost smack is already showing them up. I say, keep at it.</p>

<p>If you look back in the "pressure cooker"...this site is also discussed there.</p>
