Don't go here, instead go to a college more worthwhile... if you go to a five-college school, you can always take some classes here and transfer if you actually like it...

Why are you interesting? Why should they care about you? This year they can accept approximately 1/10 applicants (a 17% increase in applications since last year). Take risks in your application and stand out.

I lived alone in high school as an emmancipated minor. I went to a high school college fair. I was talking to someone from another college in a booth next to Amherst's. The Amherst rep chatted me up finding out what I was interested in and what my grades were. Then they asked where my parents were (everyone else's were there of course). When I said I lived alone, and supported myself, and my parents were not available, they turned on their heel and walked a couple of feet away from me and immediately started talking to a parent/student combo. Afterwards they actually ignored me when I asked them a specific, though perhaps not polite, question.

Presented a "total package" type application. All essays meshed together nicely. Called to check on my application, but was always made sure I wasn't that annoying neurotic person.
