We’ve all threatened to say or do something outlandish for our personal statement, like the tweets below. They usually end up being empty threats. Every once in a while, someone actually follows through with these threats and something magical happens.

Yes, so I had promised people I would put up my LUMS Personal Statement up here.I just came back from LUMS, and this is what got me the interview call for their MBA programme. Once you go through it, you will understand when I tell you that it was the most awkward interview ever.Note: Only part of application up here.

Check out this recent blog post from Ali Awesome.  Apparently he wasn’t kidding about “oh I’ll just write [insert something ridiculous] for my personal statement.”  I’d love to hear the whole story.
