Damn, yeah I was invited to a DC reception to which I wanted to go but I totally forgot about it/didn't RSVP. It might even be this coming week.

My guess is the rejection letter was an error made by a clerical worker in the admissions office. It's easier to make a mistake when you're doing a mass mailing than to talk on the phone for four miniute to the WRONG PERSON.
That freaks me out. I wonder how many people have mistakingly been rejected
I love how it makes people's day to see Duke lose...like literally makes their day.
I'm a Duke fan but I must admit they sucked this year, and I knew it from day 1. And they have that tool Paulus running the point. I honestly wonder what the hell Coach K was thinking when he recruited him. I'm not exaggerating when I say I could probably guard the ball more effectively than he does.

yeah, check your status online. On LSN, I saw that some people were rejected, so I went and checked online to find that i had been waitlisted....WL #4 for me :p
at least not a rejection I guess.
I don't mean to sound like a snot but has anyone else not heard from schools that they should have gotten into and that they've have seen other people get into who applied after I did and had much lower stats? My particular school is AU. I've gotten into more competitive schools (BU, BC, WM, Emory) but have not heard a peep from AU since I went complete back in early December. I really like AU for their International Law program and am getting nervous.
You don't sound like a snot, especially considering you got into all of those other schools, AU should be a given. Have you tried calling them/e-mailing them. You are in a slightly different scenario I'd imagine so they wouldn't mind.
Isn't the whole point of a safety school is that it's a school were you are all but guaranteed to get in?
Yes, that's the point you're all but guaranteed, not simply guaranteed....that's why you should have 2-3 safeties.

I'm f-ing bitter...not only because I had no mail but because a few people heard from BU today and over the past week but I haven't. I haven't even heard from WM, WL...wtf

I've always thought Nowitzki is a choker, and this game confirmed it for me. It's not only the potential game-winning shots that he misses but also the fact that his performance tends to deteriorate in the final minutes of the game, at least whenever I'm watching. not only did he miss those FTs, he had a shot that could have won it for them (at the end of first OT or regulation, can't remember).
Kobe is definitely much much more clutch. Just go back one year to the series vs. the Suns when Kobe had a clutch steal and then a REALLY clutch, amazing floater that took them into OT, followed by a game-winning layup later on...All pretty incredible, unbelievable shots.
I've heard most NBA players say Kobe is by far the best talent in the league as of today. Thought I would say based on today Nash has to be the MVP...
I am absolutely convinced that "better not to hear" is BULL *&^%. I would say it's more the exception rather than the rule. Look at LSN, some schools haven't even started sending out rejections (I believe this includes BU...save for maybe one or two rejections). Also, my first three decisions were acceptances, and the next 4 consisted of one rejection and 3 WLs. I'm hoping that at least 1-2 of the next 7 will be an acceptance but I expect the majority to be waitlists/rejections
And it just makes no sense intuitively. If you're gonna get in, you;re gonna get in and they'll let you know. There's no point in putting off an acceptnance, while it does make more sense to delay sending out a rejection.
So, in sum, while I wouldn't say "no news is good news" I'd just say that you should keep hope because you never know what's going to happen.
Sorry for my rant, I just don't buy that theory.
I think "life-stunting" is quite a dramatic way of putting the effects of living at home. I've been "independent" for all of undergrad, and for the past year, and I have to say, "independence" is over-rated. If it's going to save you a lot of money and hassle, and your family is in the area, I don't see why you'd go out of your way to live independently. To each his/her own I guess.
For me, though, the perks of living with family (free food, lodging, etc) outweigh everything else. Plus, I doubt my parents would be getting in the way of my social/intellectual development anyway. Not like I'm going to be any worse of a lawyer because I lived with my parents during LS
