Better Chance of Getting In?

<p>I'm applying to pomona RD. This past fall, I applied for their Fall Weekend for minorities and got accepted to it. They paid for me to visit them, from Philly to Ontario (~$500), gave me a card full of meal plans, and took me to the mall where they, again, paid for food and games at GameWorks. I wasn't alone; it was with about 15 other seniors. </p>

<p>So I'm thinking, if they're willing to spend that much money on me, wouldn't it make sense for them to accept me?</p>

<p>It does make sense, but the college admissions process can be far from sensible. That said, your attending the Fall Weekend demonstrated your interest in the school, so that's a plus. Make sure you mention it on your application.</p>

<p>Good luck!</p>

<p>Thanks! I guess we'll just have to see what happens and staying hopeful.</p>
