Well....she already had a really strong application. But, during AIM, the cadre discuss how the AIMSTERs are doing. Her cadre told her she was one of the top. Based on his verbal feedback, I am assuming he wrote something similar in his evaluation. I do not know if she got to see the actual evaluation or not.
Lots of AIM kids, lots of cadre, lots of "strong" applications. I would think that it would be almost impossible for one member of the cadre to compare their "AIMsters" to others that they did not lead.
Whatever the facts might have been, it all worked!
