Looking to buy a Boston condo? Your mortgage company may require that you write a “motivational letter.” WTF?

Excerpts from The New York Times on motivational letters:

When Linda Falcão applied for a mortgage from Wells Fargo, she didn’t realize she would be required to write the type of essay that’s more commonly included with a college application.
