The best and most selective colleges don’t have a template that you can mold yourself into, in order to get admission.
Correct that: they do have a template … for their class.
And they have experience with other students from your school.
You have three choices –
- look like the students from your school who went to that college. If they worked OK on the quilt, and you fashion yourself after them, you might too. If you take this path, remember that many others in your school are trying to do exactly that.
- Look like someone who they have not seen. Someone who may make the quilt interesting.
- Just show your best colors and patterns, and let the right quilt find you.
