Singing or gangsta rapping?

Barbershop Quartet...and a dancing clown in the background shooting confetti everywhere.

You visited IC and you didn't look me up?  Shameless.

I'll be back.  Do you know if they give allowances for visits?

Possibly singing telegram would be more appropriate.

54
Obviously a professional kick boxer or commercial jingle writer.

wow.

Be nice to Wii, he can't help himself.



Just a perfect picture...I have no idea where you found that.  More acceptances to come, Penny.  No worries.

You can absolutely tell them that you're very interested.  The only reason you shouldn't is if you think you might have a chance at money from them, and you want to hold out to see if they throw any your way.  If they think you're sold on them they'll try to scoop you for free.  Also, try to get on their mom's good side.  That's huge. 

Either way, you're in.  They love gpa.  I visited the campus last week; be sure to check out the student lounge.  It's fabulous.  ;)

Just because you are not required to disclose, doesn't mean you shouldn't disclose. If you are uncomfortable enough to post on a message board about it, maybe you should disclose for peace of mind. I can't see how it would harm you. Do what makes you feel comfortable.

Yeah, a short paragraph or two is probably enough. Just stick to the facts and put a line in there about how they are free to contact you if they have any questions or concerns.




If they specifically say it is not necessary to disclose expunged offenses or juvenile offenses then why would you?  Why follow rules that don't exist?

More important question: why waste the admissions committee's time with addenda that literally *are not relevant* to what they ask for in the application? If it says "any arrests, except those that have been expunged" and you address it anyway, you are only hurting yourself.

Bottom line: Follow. The. Directions.

agreed

It is tought to be taken seriously when there are a bevy of grammatical errors in your original post that stretched far beyond just syntax, dear lad.  I had serious medical problems my freshman and sophomore years in college, it messed up my gpa a little bit, but it's cool.  I rebounded, and it gave me a gripping personal statement topic that actually gained me admittance into a top twenty school.  The best part is that this school is not in Wisconsin. Actually, no such school exists in Wisconsin.  Merry Christmas.

What's wrong with the "are?"...one grammatical error hardly constitutes a "bevy".   ;D

"... there is a bevy of grammatical errors..."

Bevy is a singular noun referring to the collection or group of multiple items (as in birds or hot babes).  I'm not an English major by any means, but I'm pretty sure I'm correct that "bevy" should be treated as a singular, not a plural.  For instance, replace "bevy" with "group" or "collection".

I concede.  That sucks. Apparently, I can't be taken seriously, either.   :-[
