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.

Thanks,
Dan

The restraining order your last school took out against you?

But seriously,
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.

Say you love the atmosphere, and when you walked in for the first time you knew that is where you belong. Make it seem as though they are your first and only choice.

I can't tell you how much of this crap I wrote on my college apps.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

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.

Harry, atmosphere was the first thing I thought of, and im probally going to put something like that in there, but this thing needs to be a paragraph, and all I can think of is about a sentence.

DesertJets,
I have the grammar, just not the bullshit, im a good bullshitter, but this is out of my league.

Thanks,
Dan

Maybe tell a story about your visit or something like that? They probably like that kind of stuff, and its creative.

DJ's right. And the Official Corollary to that is this...

Whatever you do, make the bullshit plausible.

They have to buy it.  Big grin
