hmm... i did not get this email.   ???

I thought you already got one saying public policy was full...

Bonkers where are you thinking of going, if the wait lists don't change?

Tulane... I just sent my second deposit. Go Green Wave or whatever their mascot is!


i did-- but then i wrote letters of interest for political science and the llm program.  no response back for either.  the response about policy came early friday morning before they (apparently) started making offers, and he asked if i'd be willing to consider doing any of the others.

I didn't get it either.  Even though I know there's no chance, I can't help but hang on to a shred of hope until I actually get the email.

Well I didn't get my email until about 30 minutes after Stephon posted, so they are seemingly doing them individually. Maybe you do have a shred of hope, but you'd think Hoye would have called the people he is admitting by now...

I'm with you Buju.  I am sure that they send it to the people they don't want to make mad first and the rest of us later.  But there is hope that they still love us.

seriously this whole mess feels like a junior high dance.  where all of the pretty girls already have dates, and i'm the chubby one, still hanging onto some thread of hope that one of the pairings will break up and the boy will ask me at the last minute.

hah, yeah, traumatic childhood :)  

and bonkers, i really don't care about this mess at this point-- in truth, i probably can't pull out of my study abroad thing anymore, and would have trouble getting a flight... so it's rather a moot point.

Why would they care about making me mad? They've been bending me over since day one...

Yeah it is a mess. A big part of me is relieved. I just kind of wish it had never come up at all. What they should have done is draw people off the joint-degree waitlist and not gotten the rest of us all worked up.

I know I am on the joint degree list and it has been fun to see them say "we would rather have someone who has shown no interest in the joint degree than you".   Very fun indeed.

It's great isn't it? The people on the list have shown an interest and many have actually worked abroad, yet they are trying to draw in people with no international experience for the LLM? It doesn't make much sense.
