To clear up any misreading of my intent on that second piece of advice
about submitting patches...

It really only applies to accepted students. Submitting patches, although a
great thing to do for any project at any time, has no bearing on whether or
not your proposal will be accepted by the mentoring organization. It just
meant that the program administrators at google have consistently found
that students who submit patches early on in their projects are highly
correlated with students who get a passing grade at the end of the summer.
