So I finished my GRE general test

Here comes the real fun: the statements of purpose for 7 American and 4 British universities. Let's get skilled in the art of catchy, literate, entertaining and informative but not amusing, emotional or bombastic writing. Sounds for me like a paper about n HIV cure.

Something else: There's a hairl-dresser in Euston station with a very time efficient system. First you buy a voucher at a ticket machine (9£ for men), then you queue up, get your hair cut and finally they treat you with a «head-vaccum cleaner» to get rid of all those tiny pieces of hair that would drive you mad. Very innovative, quick and cheap.

Hi Mike,
What was your core?

Surprisingly good verbal part with 650. 780 on maths, but I completely screwed up the writing part with only 3.5 points (which places me in writing in the lowest 20%). I can get a first class degree and win a FEBS medal, but I can't write about generic topics. This was probably my downfall in the US applications.
