I'm looking for a professional LaTeX template for either a statement or purpose/personal statement/statement of intent/etc. for a general graduate application. Most of the ones I have seen thus far have been relatively plain, and while I don't need a template that is horribly visually abrasive, one with a bit more style wouldn't be bad. Are there any good repositories for essays of this nature or does anybody from the community have a particularly well-crafted template of this type?
Had a similar issue myself when looking for CV templates. I came across this site, which was quite helpful and the .tex files are easily modifiable as most of the examples at the bottom of the page are using the letter class.
