Here's a bit of the background:
1) I have already received a BA (Linguistics, baby). I did not have to write an essay for that school, as my SAT/GPA was high enough to be automatically admitted.
2) I am considering a second degree from St. John's College (Santa Fe). In reality it depends on what their financial aid offering is, but I am willing to take on more debt, because I like being in school and the experience would be worth it.
3) Since I'm against posting an unfinished product publicly online (perhaps I'll save the rough draft as it), message me if you would like to read it.
4) I wrote it in the last two days while nearly intoxicated on caffeine.
And feel free to totally criticize this plan if it seems to you untenable.
