Each Pokemon GO team has its own personality and fearless leader. Which one is most like you?

 
 
Team Valor — Candela 
 

Goes on all the college tours. ALL OF THEM.

Rankings are important. How else are you gonna be the very best, that NO ONE EVER WAS?

Will take the SAT and ACT as many times as possible.

Most likely to adopt a school rivalry before you’re accepted to either school.

Confidence. Lots of it. “Reach” schools are secretly more like “upper targets” to you (…but you’ve gotta be polite).

Team Mystic — Blanche
 
 

Runs cost-benefit analyses of each institution of higher education you’re considering across a multitude of different criteria, including but not limited to location, price, grad school acceptance rate, average yearly precipitation, and number of affiliated Nobel laureates.

Most likely to run personal statements through Grammarly. Will probably still proofread them a million times afterwards.

Actually prepares insightful questions to ask your interviewer during college interviews.

popkey.co

 
 

Has a detailed calendar of all important dates in post-it form and synced to all your devices. You can never be too prepared.

“Mind your own business.”

Can recite facts about any college you’re applying to, on command.

Team Instinct — Spark
 
 

You kind of freestyle your college list and leave things up to fate. There’s no point in really liking a college that might just reject you anyway, right?

“Oh crap, that’s due TOMORROW?”

Like Blanche, you keep track of deadlines too. For instance, you KNOW for a fact that Common App’s deadlines are relative to your time zone and not the school’s.

Most likely to turn in a barely-finished application at 11:59 P.M. your time zone on the due date.

“Aww yes! Waived application fee! Guess I’m applying there.”

Will have godly skills in reappropriating the same essay for as many different prompts as possible.
