Comparison:

It's really hard to choose between the two applicants, Sebastian Slime and Mordecai Rossi, because they have so much in common. Firstly, they each have an MBA from Harvard and performed equally well in their course work. Since finishing graduate school, Sebastian has been able to use his personality to assume a responsible position in a trade company. In the same way, Mordecai has been able to assume a responsible position in a manufacturing company. Both seem to have performed well in those jobs.

Tae Kwon Do was developed in Korea before Christ was born, and has been handed down through over 20 generations. What was once only practiced by monks in 5 B.C.E, has exploded into a nationally celebrated art. Finally, Tae Kwon Do’s path into history is it’s most amazing feature, especially since the art became an official Olympic sport in 1988.
