Ok, as the topic stated, I need advice on my highschool application. Im transfering schools, and im stuck on what to put for "Why you picked this school, etc" part. I cant put the real reasons, (friends, girls), and I havnt had much luck making anything up. Plus my grades have been average, so I really want to win this school over. So, where else to ask but A.Net.
A guy asks 'What's Punk?'. I kick over a trash can and its punk. He knocks over a trash can and its trendy.

The restraining order your last school took out against you?
Mention the school's great reputation or some other BS.. They love hearing that. School applications are not about being honest, they are about telling the admissions people what they want to hear.

One important thing, and the reason why they make you write essays. Bullshit is bullshit, but at least make damn sure your bullshit is grammatically correct and has some sort of logical flow and structure to it. If your bullshit is uninteligible, no matter how brillant it is, you won't make it into that school.
