<p>Hello...I have a really stupid question(!)..</p>
<p>I know that a lot of ppl get applications from many colleges send(even though you didn't request requested them) with letters...saying
"congratulations on you academic achievements...
consider Harvard(for example) as a possible college choice..."</p>
<p>I KNOW those letters don't mean that you're accepted or have a better chance, but...what do those letters exactly mean?
Does it mean that it's worth trying?
Is it better than not getting any? </p>
<p>I don't think of myself as an ivy-league-type...(even though i'm applying a few..see if I'm lucky :) becuase my SAT scores are too low.
I just want to hear some opinions...</p>
