Step 1) Send in a complete application to Alpha, including a story.
Step 2) Freak out.
Step 3) End the freakout by posting here!
This is a thread for your worries. The application committee will not read any of your comments, so you can talk about your stories as much as you want. Feel free to share your concerns, your enthusiasms, and anything else with other people who applied to Alpha.
It’s a stressful thing to do. Let yourself feel the stress.
