Random Question:


What is the rationale behind deleting old posts?

I'm not obsessed with post-count, simply lazy.

Discuss, inform, enlighten, thanks.

I've really been thinking about the post-grad ramifications of where I go, I want good job prospects and would love to be able to work in Seattle, so its either UW next year (they already dinged me this cycle) or a t14. Would it be fun to go to Seattle U or U Oregon, probably, but what would be the long-term consequences. I've really been forced to think in the 10 year range alot post college. I don't like it, but it's reality.

Tell UW they were wrong & that they should let you in anyway! 

Exactly!  Like Jack Black said in Orange County: "Just go to Stanford anyway.  Don't take no for an answer.  Say, 'I'm going here.  Kiss my ass.'"


I actually had this exact thought sitting on the crapper yesterday!

You'll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar...


I'm not sure who was using vinegar as fly bait, but the point is this, you probably won't get anywhere by being an a-hole. I would call, and get the skinny, if you got the phone call in error it is possible to express distress and indignation without cursing the entire adcomm's firstborn. If necessary detail the possible consequences of said action (Could have withdrawn from all other schools etc. etc.) If the letter was sent in error, graciously accept their apology.

Karma.


don't be a male private part

I agree whole heartedly,

I am 1/4 Indian, from India, its the largest identifiable portion of my heritage but the rest is just European mutt.

I went through UG on a minority full-tuition scholarship which I had to post a 2.0 to keep. I always identify myself as Asian/Pacific Islander and specify East Indian if it's an option. If that's the way the system works, take everything the system gives you.

Waitlisted today. If past medians are a useless indicator of likehood of acceptance, how should we decide where to apply?

Bitter, depressed, angry. GW was my top remaining choice. Complete in early Nov.
Writing LOCI as we speak.

Speachless.

It seems to me that they're obsessed with the 167 LSATs. I bet you're one of the first off the wait list.

I'm on the waitlist with a 167 too... Are you really writing another letter? I mean, I know its protocol but wtf is the point? "Hey...hey you... hey adcomm, I wasn't f-ing around when I spent my money and sent you a shitload of documents, seriously, I want a seat, no joke, really..."

I think the cycle might be getting to me.

This is what I said I was going to do with mine over in the UW denial thread... It's one of my favorite rants so you get to see it again.


I once had three rejections in a 7-day span.  Depressing, yes, but then go to a law school that did accept you, do well, land a nice job, and then you can frame those rejections and have the last laugh.

Or you can just throw the dings in a fire, sure.

I've saved them.


I'm planning on folding up a paper Napoleon hat and sword and going to stand in the middle of the biggest common area I can find in my most disheartening rejection school so that I can shout unintelligibily at the 1Ls who stole my seat. Hopefully there will be a fountain I can stand in and splash about...
