College applicants try interesting bribes

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | (UPI) -- Registration personnel at colleges report many applications come complete with SAT scores and chocolate chip cookies.

The Nashville Tennessean says you'd be surprised at just what prospective students send along with paperwork in an effort to convince colleges to accept their applications.

At Vanderbilt admissions officers say they routinely receive videotapes, compact discs, slide shows and other multi-media productions that tout the qualifications of students.

Many send along goodies, including baked goods, some of it obviously prepared by mom in an effort to help the cause.

Some the extras are inventive. One student reportedly sent in a vial of red food coloring claiming he would "sweat blood" to come to Vanderbilt.
