Mission Impossible: Admission

Anyone who thinks that studying is easy, is not a fool. Like, to actually study in your field is easy. It is the damn admission procedure that really kills you.
There is a very famous saying about IIT's, it is said that getting admitted to an IIT is more difficult than to actually survive the institute's rigorous training.

I beg to differ.

It is GODDAMMIT difficult getting admitted everywhere. Making life simple is NOT the purpose of any admission procedure. Every year, there is SO much confusion whenever the undergrad admissions start. Understandable, it is the first time that the kiddos are getting admitted and all...
But what is with the admissions to the Masters...

I have been trying like crazy to get couple of things together for my applications to the masters program.. and everything is so muddled up.
The damn thing needs so many papers and so many essays that, it feels like I am doing an English Assignment rather than applying for a masters course in Law.
The statement of purpose has not gone beyond 3 paragraphs... and well, the recommendation letters are so drab that, I feel that there is nothing significant that I have done in the last five years that I have done. No, it is not entirely my fault, it is the same format that the college uses for all the students, any change is welcome, but then the evaluation is not by the college, or the teachers but by the students themselves.
This is India, and only here can this happen.
So, mission admission which is looking like a HUGE failure is on its way...
Wish me luck and pray for me...

Admissions..!! Gah..!! Its always been difficult...

and guess what, its all the more difficult to get admission for 3-4 year old kids.. Man, I was quite surprised that all the big schools want children who already know counting, alphabetics, shapes, colours, everything..!!
Obviously, at our age, it has to be tougher..

but i wish you good luck.. Hope you get admission into masters soon*

*- in your desired college..
