Sometimes there are comments in our comment threads that deserve more prominent play at EphBlog. Example:

Just as a practical note to wannabee-Ephs or their parents in the next few years: Don’t be stupid and write that you want to major in Econ on your application! The doubling of Econ majors from an already high level will undoubtedly get some attention from Nesbitt and his staff.

Good advice! The more interesting issue is which answers to the other application questions increase one’s chances. Informed speculation is welcome.
