Just wondering...how do you demonstrate interest in colleges? How do they know that you are interested? There are a lot of schools that I don't really have the time or money to visit over the summer, such as Harvard. I emailed their admission office once...and signed up for their newsletters. Does that count as "show interest"?
Another way of "demonstrating interest" is to actually cultivate a relationship with your regional rep. If they come to your school, make sure you are there to say hello so they can put a face to a name on an application. Don't be afraid to send them emails to ask questions.
