How much "Interest" do you need to show?
For colleges and universities that "track demonstrated interest", how much credit does an applicant get for showing interest? Is a college visit enough? Is there a single "point" added to your score if you show interest at least once, but no additional points if you do 5 things that show interest? Or should you do as much as possible to show interest - open emails, visit campus Junior and Senior year, attend classes, email admissions department.... Does everything you do count? At some point it becomes less meaningful to the applicant and much more about playing a game to get admitted. Any admissions counselors out there who can shed some light on this?
