Good morning, and allow me to thank you all for consideration of my application for graduate degree. I look forward to meeting each of my professors to discuss pursuit of my degree requirements and and how I may assist best assist the academic departments of Columtreal University.
[By applying as a graduate student I really wasn't trying to fast track the Alterscape system; I don't think my role is inconsistent with the natural progression as student. As a student I would still be expected to attend courses for credit, and as a graduate student I would bear responsibilities for assisting faculty with research and or presentation of course materials. But attendance and making the grade isn't enough to get a graduate degree; a graduate student must also have the approval of the professors. In practice this would mean that you can dump on me whichever part of teaching courses is most onerous to you and take credit for it yourself.]
