FALL COLORS OF BENETTON.

micks invite him to give files
a second look to see if he miss-
ed some weakness the first
time around.
And the competitive nature
of college admissions has an
ironic twist. With fewer stu-
dents coming out of high
schools, the competition con-
tinues to build. The "media
hype encourages students to
try to get into more presti-
gious schools," according to
Johnson, who says it is not
uncommon to apply to seven
or eight schools.
What is the bottom line on
these tactics? How often do
they work?
"If it's done with a taste of
class, it can kind of hit us all
in the same way. But we
quickly recover our reaction
and go back to the formula:
academics first," said William
and Mary's Ripple.
University of Virginia dean
of admissions John A. Black-
burn said, "We're not offend-
ed. It sort of raises the spirits
of the staff somewhat:'
Some say unique additions
make no difference at all.
"We've never received any-
thing so horrible that we
wouldn't admit someone we
normally would or anything
so great that would warrant
admission to someone who
normally wouldn't get in,"
said Guttentag of U. of Penn.
Brandeis' Segal agreed that
none of the gimmicks are
pivotal in a decision,
Many counselors say addi-
tions to an application will
help a borderline student. "It
underscores the student's
desire to enroll in a light-
hearted way," said Richard W.
Haines, former director of ad-
missions at Lafayette College
in Pennsylvania.
"It will work for a student
who is 'On the fence, but
substance in more important
than style, and the student
who has achieved well in and
out of class always has an ad-
vantage," Hanes added.
But Dalby, at Smith Col-
- lege, had a warning , for ap-
plicants who may be tempted
to overwhelm the admissions
director: "Be selective. Re-
member the admissions
adage: "The thicker -the
folder, the thicker the stu-
dent:'
Admissions officers all of-
fered similar advice when
considering these off-beat tac-
tics. Kelly suggested, "Know
thyself. Be confident and sure
about your work in high
school, your essay and every-
thing else you have control
over. Pick the right school for
yourself, not for your parents
and private counselors:'
