Which video games should I play to help my admissions cycle?

Postby alexonfyre » Fri Mar 18, 2011 8:13 pm

All I do every day is play video games and drink alcohol, but I want to get into a T14. I am just curious which video games the adcomms look most favorably on when I talk about them at length in my personal statement. Can I write a diversity statement if I play unpopular games, like puzzle games?

You should play Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, to prove your long stanging interest in International Law.

Personally, I like to play Troll Pwning. It's not available to you. Then again, neither is TLS anymore.
