Bribery(the good kind)

<p>So I read an article that mentioned applicants sends cakes and life size plaster molds of themselves and all kind of crazy things. Does this really matter at all? Does it just annoy adcoms?</p>

<p>There is no "good" kind of bribery.</p>

<p>It most probably would annoy the hell out of the admissions committee. It's just plain dumb, and its 99.99% certain to reflect negatively on a person.</p>

<p>I agree with both ksarmand and CrimsonFuture. I mean, what kind of bribery is "the good kind"? The statement is moronic (and oxymoronic too).</p>

<p>You need to go back and re-read the article in question noting the sarcasm as it relates to bribery. Also read: <a href="http://www.thecrimson.com/article/1999/2/18/sucking-up-getting-in-p-dean/%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.thecrimson.com/article/1999/2/18/sucking-up-getting-in-p-dean/&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>With so many really good suck ups applying to Harvard, some of them must be doing something right. Well...no again. "I'm not sure anyone may have gotten in," Fitzsimmons says. He strongly advises against overkill and attempts to get noticed. "The point isn't to get noticed; the point is to get in," he says.</p>

<p>I apologize. I shouldn't have titled this thread like i did. It was nothing but stupidity. It is inexcusable. I should have looked more closely at the article. I shouldn't even apply.</p>
