    Such a(n)... and So ... a(n)...?

    Sara is such an intelligent girl that everyone wants to be her friends.
    Sara is so intelligent a girl that everyone wants to be her friends.
    Sara is of such intelligence that everyone wants to be her friends.

    Are all these options possible? Do they all make sense and mean the same thing?
    I personally would use the first one in speech and informal text and the last one in an essay. Do you agree with me? Thanks in advance!

    Re: Such a(n)... and So ... a(n)...?

    'Everyone' is a singular pronoun, so they should all end with 'friend'.

    They are all grammatically correct but you're only likely to hear the first.
