Are you reapplying for 2009?

Do you have a super power in mind?

Yes, to state schools or schools I can get instate status to after a year, as well as suffolk pt.  Saving money is my new goal.

I was thinking the power to enter peoples dreams is pretty dominant, especially if used like Freddy Krueger.  Also, you can manipulate people into liking you, as well as affect their daily life.

That said, teleportation over long distances (with other people if you are touching them) seems pretty awesome too.

You should write about how the works of Ayn Rand have made you empathetic to the needs of others.

Others need services, I aim to provide at a reasonable cost, to the best of my abilities. No worries.

The superpower one. While it will get you rejected everywhere else, I think it pretty much cements your spot at HYS next year, assuming you pick the right power.

Seriously though, maybe just something that is low risk/low to moderate reward. The elder care one doesn't sound too bad.

DO NOT pick x-ray vision. They will just think you are a perv.

Completely agree.  Dream powers can also be taken advantage of.  How about, "the Midas Touch", so I can provide for the poor (and devalue gold)

Nah then you wuoldn't need to be a lawyer to help people. I would pick the ability to fly. That way you help fight carbon-emmisions by  never having to drive/fly anywhere, and you save your future company money. You would be energy and cost efficient!!!!

BigFlight? economically viable?

I think I'll just write a safe, brief PS on the old people.
