When they ask for your interests and activities in their application form? And information to 'support' your application?

Which is better-why I am suitable for their college, or why their college is suitable for me?

Because extra curricular wise, i am pretty much good for nothing. For the last two years or so, i have completely been on a focussed mission, and have done Nothing. But should i put in swimming, and badminton. and football, because I did play them quite often till 3 years ago.

You want to be seen as a potential asset, so why you are suitable for their college is more important, but at more selective schools, whether the school is suitable for you is just as important.
in the blink of an eye you finally see the light

go into a silent room and take a stack of 100 dollar and rub them together.
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

what does selective schools imply? More reputed schools?

I think it's more of a test to see how retarded you are. If you can't compose a coherent sentence, there is little reason to even have you attend their school.

It's also a hugely masturbatory. Some schools act like they're doing you a favor because they're elitist pricks (oh, I'm sorry... for a minute there I thought my tuition paid your salary). These things happen, particularly at Ivy League or highly technical universities.

It's all a game. Just play the game. Shower them with praise, regardless if it's genuine, but don't make it obvious that you're kissing their @ss. You don't want to sound desperate.
