It's better to take a risk and get someone's attention than it is to blend in with everyone else.

Dear Coursicle Team,


I'm Aaron Goldblatt, I'm 19, and I attend the Macaulay Honors Program at CUNY Queens College. I love reading, writing, basketball, Netflix, napping during the day, Xbox, eating, and quilted toilet paper. Probably not in that order. 

But who cares, really. 

If this application does its job well, I will hopefully have shown that I'm not just RANDOM ADOLESCENT from GENERIC SCHOOL. You see, I am at heart passionate about all that I do. I cognitively function outside the box, I push the limits of convention, and I traverse avenues most wouldn't dare to access.

But enough of my blabber.

You probably just want to see my resumé already. Hope you enjoy.

Thank you so much for this awesome opportunity!

All the best,

My Dearest Aaron, 

Thank you so much for your interest in Coursicle. I’m sorry about my delayed response; we received a lot more applicants than we expected, so it’s taken us a while to go through them all.

That said, you certainly did stand out from the crowd. We loved your email (it gave us all a giggle). Unfortunately, though, we decided not to move forward with your application at the moment. That doesn't mean your application didn't do its job: I genuinely believe that you are passionate about what you do, something that's incredibly difficult to accomplish from an introduction email. 

I too try to push the limits of convention, but you have far outdone me here. Well done, my friend, and best of luck with finals.

Dear Mr. Puccio,

Thanks so much! Glad you enjoyed! Please feel free to let me know if any future opportunities arise.

All the best,

Ps. Quilted toilet paper probably comes first on that list, now that I think about it...
