I would agree that Snape felt that he would impress Lily by joining the Death Eaters as JKR said as much as well - if that is what you meant by 'convince her'. However, I truly cannot understand how Snape felt that Lily would be impressed by him joining up with a group that was in the business of killing and/or disenfranchising/subjugating people like her. This is another reason I don't buy the argument that Snape was among the brightest, cleverest or more intelligent students in his youth. I think he had potential, but it had yet to flourish, imo.
