Law School Applications / Re: The "Bitter Because Everyone Else Got An Acceptance Today And I Didn't" Thre« on: March 06, 2007, 08:30:41 PM »
GTown rejection in mailbox. Was a major reach but definitely my top choice out of everywhere I applied. Not really bitter because I wasn't expecting to get in but kind of bummed. I WILL, however, be bitter when/if I start getting rejected from what I believe to be my target schools. Then, I'll be like "who the f*** do you think you are--rejecting ME??!! The nerve of you!"
I mean seriously BU/BC/WL/WM where the hell are you??? I'm convinced only waitlists/rejections are on the way, given my recent experience with the whole "no news is good news (not)" thing. Meh
Congrats everybody. I just got into Columbia via e-mail. They sent me a PDF of my acceptance letter--kinda strange but glad to have the news.
Congrats! Strange indeed, lol.
I think Ted Kennedy probably had the accent in his heyday. Right now he's just old, senile, and incoherent, which is why you don't get the full effect.
What about Kerry's accent in his younger days? During the whole post-Vietnam testimony, etc.
BU...i don't think it's that obvious of a decision. It really depends on how willing you are to have the whole debt burden after you graduate...If money's not an issue--Harvard. In your case, tough call but I would say don't shut BU out so quickly.
For prestige, you can't beat the Boston Brahmin accent. Uber-prestijus.
agreed. like the Ted Kennedy type, pronouncing "can't" like "con-t"..kind of

I love 24, I really do, but the writing is wearing on me.
Without those kinds of tactics, Jack wouldn't be Jack, and 24 wouldn't be 24.
I was actually really annoyed that Martha's coming back--I HATED her last season...annoying

Heh ya, that was a real good episode. I've watched all seasons of 24, and this season ranks up there IMO. The only thing is they recycle tons of plot ideas/themes so if you've seen the previous seasons it gets kind of old. This season definitely so far has been better than the past 2, which got very slow and boring in the middle. Let's hope that doesn't happen with the remainder of this season.
jd2bee: did you see the preview of next week's episode? They showed a glimpse of what's going to happen with the hostage situation.

I don't know what you guys are talking about when you say that all of the decisions lately are waitlists..
Wow, awesome. Hey,if the acceptances are still rolling in, I'm not complaining

Wait, how are applicants down and applications up?
I'd rather have 4 people applying to all top 25 schools (hence 4 applications per school), than 20 different people, 10 applying to 1-12, and 10 applying to 13-25, hence 10 applications per school. I know that's kind of an extreme example but you get my point. It boils down to the proportionality of the increase/decrease.
