Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: Waitlisted @ Loyola-LA
« on: June 27, 2007, 11:45:59 PM »
I withdrew from the Loyola waitlist today so you guys have one less person to compete with. I wasn't going to attend anyway so there was no point in being on it. Good luck to the rest of you!

So wouldn't it be smarter just to take T3 w/ $$$ for my 1L year, and see what happens?

No, it would be smarter to not sell yourself short.

Romans, any reason you got rid of your avatar where you looked autistic?

Stop hijacking this thread and wasting space on the internet!

I would go to Emory but you're probably going to get off of one of those waitlists so it may or may not matter which school you choose right now. In any event, Emory is very well known and has great quality of life. I also think that it has the strongest reputation but that's just based on what I've heard from others.

Just to review, this was the original post you made.
The OP is WLed at: michigan, duke, cornell, texas, and vanderbilt
You told him that his decision is not that important.  I would say this post urges OP to make a hasty and "temporary" decision.
Blah blah, insert the part where I laugh about being called stupid by the guy who has had other threads started about his misguided postings.
I'm sure you're very nice in person, but boy I hope you do a lot of proofreading when you write.

I did not tell the OP that his decision was not important and it was not meant to be a temporary decision. If that is how you took my first post then I apologize for that. What I am saying is that the OP should make a choice, Emory, and then plan out what he would do if he were to be taken off of one or more of his waitlists. I've seen too many people on here that did not plan on getting off their waitlists and when they were accepted they didn't have the time to visit. This caused them to either reject the school that they just got accepted at or it created a panic to find housing and get information on the school. My intention here was not to say that the OP was certainly going to get into schools that he was waitlisted at but rather that he should consider the possibility and form a plan if he were to be accepted. He should attend Emory and if a waitlist comes up then he should consider attending the school at that point. That's exactly what you were saying as well. The only caveat is that he will be caught with his pants down if he doesn't research those schools now. If he's serious about getting in off those waitlists then he should accept Emory, write LOCI's, and prepare a plan of action if accepted off a waitlist.

wow roman, you're an a-hole... I must have gotten WL'ed at USD cause Im not a big enough shitbag, although thats hard to imagine, cause my numbers were certainly better than yours.

No, you got waitlisted at USD because you are a complete loser. Sure, your numbers may be better than mine but the committee could see through all that. They knew that you were a fucktard and they don't want that type of sh*t on campus. Have fun at Cooley!

Best of luck next year, just hope USD doesnt slip to T3, or you may have to be running off that filthy mouth while managing a burger king.

This coming from the guy who started cursing at me in his first post here. *cough* hypocrite *cough*

Thats cute how you typed hypocrite while you interweb coughed.  Where'd you learn to do that?

I was simply using accurate descriptions of you and your behavior, after reading 3 pages of you being a complete ass to anyone who disagreed with you.

That's not accurate. I did not say anything negative about dashrashi and that's because she never insulted me. I was only rude to those that dismissed me or insulted me. Dashrashi didn't do either of those so there was no need to give her a taste of her own medicine. You on the other hand started off with an attack, so what did you expect?

What makes you so sure he will get off one of those waitlists? You wouldn't want to be giving him false hope. I'm curious, personally and for his sake, what grounds are you using to make that statement?

I am not so sure that he will be accepted off the waitlists but I am making an educated guess based on how well he's done so far. The OP has been accepted by some pretty reputable T1's and has also been waitlisted at T20 schools so this means that he is likely at the top of those waitlists. The number of good schools that the OP is either accepted at or waiting on proves that he is a desirable candidate. Not everyone gets waitlisted at this many T20 schools. Some candidates get rejected by most T20's and may only be on one waitlist from that group. Yet the number of waitlists in the T20 range that the OP is on gives credibilty to the notion that he is qualified to be accepted into a T20 school. I could be wrong though and knowing his numbers would help.

I was going to be more mean but its early ... this is so wrong.  Waitlists are NEVER predictable.  The end.

Who said that waitlists were predictable? I was just pointing out that one should never say never when it comes to waitlists. It doesn't mean that you plan on getting into a certain school but you certainly should take that possibility into account because if it comes around and you're not ready to move late in the cycle, you're done.

no, you SHOULDN'T take waitlists into account when doing anything.  You should plan on going to one of the schools to which you have been accepted.  If you get in off a waitlist then you can starting thinking about how to deal with your situation.

You must be very stupid because you cannot comprehend what it is that I have stated. You essentially said the same thing that I have while at the same time dismissing me. So you are either a moron or an ass.

Because the LSAT taker in me just won't die: the bolded is a false dichotomy.

I guess he could be both. Plus, I can tell you that he is definitely a d*o*u*c*h*e*b*a*g. In any event, I was asked my rationale and gave it only to be rebuffed by these two clowns solely because they did not like my outcome and believe that waitlists are rejections. They have no evidence for any claims that they have made about waitlists being useless in the decision making process. These two just talk out of their asses and I cannot stand by and accept arguments that have no basis in reality.

Nobody said never. You made the positive claim and I asked for the grounds for said claim.

Moreover, per the last post of yours, it does not strengthen your claim that he is qualified. I doubt anybody would disagree with that, as a waitlist is a statement from the school that the person is qualified, but not allowed to matriculate because of space.

The issue here doesn't concern the definition of the term "waitlist". The issue is whether or not the OP is more likely to get off those waitlists than someone who hasn't had as good a track record this cycle. Additionally, although schools make their decisions using their own unique criteria, those decisions are by no means made in a vacuum. Furthermore, if the OP had been rejected by all of the T20 schools that he applied to except for one then I would have argued that his chances of getting in off that single T20 waitlist would have been bad. Fortunately, this is not the case and a pattern has emerged leading me to conclude that the OP is at the top of his waitlists. If you're going to argue against this then please don't say "nothing is guaranteed" because everyone knows that. Please make arguments based on evidence in this case and not on general principles such as "you cannot predict the future". By the way, have you ever noticed how a guy can become a chick magnet instantly if he's already with a hot woman? My theory about the OP being at the top of his waitlists is based on this same principle.

*sigh*

I'm not going to even bother with your nonsense.

OP: I hope you get off a waitlist, if that's what you want. Don't get your hopes up (it's late in the cycle). You are on the waitlist, after all, so there is a chance. Just don't lose sight of the chance and make your decisions with this in mind. Good luck.

Don't dismiss what I have to say especially since you have no evidence to the contrary. You can go F#U*C&K yourself!
