As you near graduation from college, you plan to apply to various graduate schools. You have prepared a draft of a statement of purpose that you will include in an application packet to each university to which you apply. You modify the statement of purpose so that it is attractive and error free. In addition, you include such items as a table, picture, header, footer, and footnote, formatting text in columns where appropriate. Finally, you use mail merge to prepare personalized copies.
