    I would go with option B. Option A had areas that sounded repetitive and generic. Option B is worded drastically better.

    I prefer option A, but maybe just reduced a little bit where repetitive or generic.

    Okay. Here goes.

    "Professor, I need this scholarship desperately. I haven't eaten in three days. Last night, I read Schopenhauer all night to assuage the hunger pains. I don't think a 13-year-old in a Master's program in Microbiology should have to go through this, after spending two summers knocking out APs and the next year getting my Bachelor's with a 4.0. It's not humane. Please help me..."

    Sound OK for a start? I haven't yet got to the part about my Dad dying and my mother needing an operation, but...

    The use of furthermore, moreover, and in summary are AI tells.

    I, of course, use promulgation of affirmation transformation in daily conversation often.

    Yeah, I did write my own... Basically, when I started the EDX course, there is an option to apply for financial assistance. It had three areas to answer, and took me a long time to finish all three areas. After 4 days, I received an email stating I got the 90% discount for the course. It took me like 40-45 minutes each to max out close to the 2500 characters per question. I was looking at ways to see if AI could do something like that and what would result from the AI work... AI isn't all that it is cracked up to be...

    Nor are most of the people who crack AI up to be what it's not.
