For those who appealed in the past and got accepted....
what did you appeal with?
like, what did you say in your appeal that convinced the college to accept you?

oh yeah, and also give some examples of what would work or would not work for an appeal.
thanks.

I think someone talked about appealing a Brandeis decision (I think it was rejection...but it could've just been from a WL or deferral) a few weeks ago. Do a search for it. I think the person was just really passionate and had done some new things. Be genuine in your appeal if you write one.

I was deferred form Cornell early decision. I didn't do much academic wise that was diffferent from my regular schoolwork (I did manage to get a bit of a higher average but nothing major). But, I did write letters to Cornell each month about the craziest things. I even went so far as to say that the dean of admissions was not my favorite person at the moment when I learned I was deferred. Then I talked about a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. When I wrote the letters, I wrote them thinking I would not get into Cornell, so I just relaxed and I was myself for a change. My application was too polished and formal. I let my true self shine through in my letters. Just be yourself and try to relax about it. Just say how much you want to go to the school and how it's still your 1st choice.

Oh, and I got in, so that shows what a little persistence can do :)
