How meek! What about young?

There's a college in Warsaw whose ad for students goes something like - "Zdolny, ambitny, atrakcyjny?". I've often wondered if "atrakcyjny" has some added meaning I'm unaware of, or is this college just fussy about the looks of its students? :)

'Attractive' - atrakcyjny can be related to the physical appearance but also due to the fact that a persin is smart and intelligent what makes him/her attractive, right ? :)

Not "I would want to be"?

To quote one of the moderators, Alik: Imo, this only sounds ok in conditional clauses. "I can understand his desire. If I were as tall as him, I would want to be a basketball player, too." - and then a native speaker confirmed.

I would like to be rich and pretty?

I wrote "I would like to be rich and pretty" and it said it was wrong that should be fixed.

"Piękna" is a really strong word. I'm not so sure if "pretty" really covers it. That would rather be "ładna".
