I am writing the standard supplemental essay (Why here?) for a college I am applying to EA. I have heard/read that this college really values demonstrated interest and I don't think I have really shown a lot of interest. Would it be inappropriate/weird to mention in the essay that I really wanted to visit campus but couldn't afford to? Or is it really not that important to mention?
BTW the college in mind is Colorado College. I am a decent applicant according to my school's Naiviance but I've noticed its become more difficult to get in in recent years, so any boost could help!
