If I knew what Yale considers awesome, I probably could. But seeing that no one really knows what they want, it is hard to do that. I think I have done quite a few awesome things, but I don't know if Yale agrees with me.
I mean you don't need a time machine to do that. If you know what Yale considers awesome, you could really take a few years off, do those awesome things, then reapply. I'd do it in a heartbeat if I knew what they are. If I can wait 3-5 years and be sure to receive an acceptance from Yale I will do it.
But it would be easier if they consider what I did as being awesome, NOW
