Random question...Silly question

If you were a college admissions officer interview a student, would you admit them if they were wearing the college’s merchandise? It’s just a random question that popped into my head 😂

    For that reason alone? No. None would.

    In fact, if it's a highly selective school it could be viewed as presumptuous.

    The college's merchandise would usually be tees, sweats, hoodies. So on top of being presumptuous, you would be dressed too casually. And Miss Manners would sniff if a HS student wore a college-logo'd tie.

    But no, no AO would admit based on wearing the merch.

    Admit them just because they are wearing school merch? No, of course not. In fact, it would probably end up as a small negative in terms of personal characteristics.

    According to my IT brother in law. Do the Microsoft update today or at least read about it. It's a major security fix. He only warns me when it's something big.....
