College Spam and admissions
So, as many of you know, once you give the collegeboard or any other college-related organization your email and mail , you start getting flooded with letters and emails from many schools. Is responding to these letters and emails and subscribing to the "learn more information about the college" option considered "showing interest"? If it is, does this help admissions for any top-notch school? I know schools like WashU love interest, but does this exactly count?
