Crazy people need not apply.
Since we’re on this subject – not of “crazy people” but of asking for help from us – we would STRONGLY encourage anyone who’s considering engaging us on services to spend some time studying this site. We have a lot of help available with standard answers to common questions — OH LOOK, THERE’S A LITTLE LINK CALLED “HELP” AT THE TOP OF THIS SCREEN!
When our first interaction with a Brave Supplicant is them sending in a bunch of questions about stuff that we cover in that easy-to-find place on the site, well, that just doesn’t create the best of first impressions.
And BTW, you should be taking the same approach with the schools. Before whipping off an email to admissions about something, scour their website and see if you can find the answer yourself.
Yes, the schools track that stuff. No, it won’t get you rejected, but it does matter.
Remember, the schools look for maturity and self-awareness and other measures of emotional intelligence (EQ) – and they also seek to admit leaders. Leaders research answers for themselves before asking for help. It’s just what they do.
Don’t be lazy.
And please, don’t be crazy, either.
