Is sending things in the mail to colleges a turn-off?
I already applied to a school and want to continue to demonstrate my interest in that school and make a good impression on admissions. If I send something I create to admissions or send them a letter continuing to demonstrate my interest in the school, does this scream desperation and is a total turn-off? I've actually heard of applicants overturning deferrals or getting accepted off the wait list by doing this. For example, I heard that one kid who wanted to go into architecture drew like a blueprint of a building at the college and it's believed that was the reason he got in off the wait list at a highly competitive college (UNC I believe). I'm really only thinking about doing this if I get positive feedback from you guys, so any input you have would be great!12 replies
