For those keeping track at home, WUStL just sent me the acceptance email.

For those keeping track overall, my count so far is:

Accepted: George Washington, Washington and Lee, Washington University, and U Minnesota (one of these schools is not like the other, one of these schools just isn't the same).

Dings: Georgetown.  Eh, who needs 'em.

Does ZAP get annoyed by Christmas songs sung by Alvin and the Chipmunks?

ZAP eats Alvin and The Chipmunks records for lunch.  Hope this answers your question.

Why did ZAP make his arrival on LSD on the same day I did? Does that make me cool too? Does that make ZAP more cool as well? The world awaits.

We are both certainly encooled by the alignment of the stars that occurred on that day.  As chance would have it, that was the coolest day to sign up for LSD in history, and will remain so for probably some hundred or thousand years. +1 point.

- Cat Stevens is great (not pandering for cool points, here). I've changed many minds about CT and, perhaps as importantly, Harold and Maude.

- Drunk philosophy bothers me more than most people, I would think.  Once a girl at a bar asked me "what is (my) philosophy, man?"  I thought I would mock her and say "Drink till' you puke, man, PARTY!!!" She cheered and admitted to sharing my "philosophy on life, man."

Man, that is REALLY unfortunate.  The drunk girl part, I mean; the Cat Stevens stuff is actually quite fortunate.  I hope she wasn't hot, because hot girls like that REALLY piss me off more than not hot girls.  Basically, it has a lot to do with the fact that I'd like to find myself attracted to them, and yet can't because of their stupidity.

Anyone who talks about how philosophical drugs or alcohol make you is on my automatic darn list.

I agree that most drugs and alcohol generally don' make a person philosophical; however, alcohol in my experience does allow me to be a little less self-critical when I write, which for me is a plus.

Also, some of the hallucinogenic mushrooms are known to have properties that basically make your perception clearer- peyote, as far as I know, has this property, hence why the Native-Americans used it.  

I've never tried shrooms, but I hope to try them if I ever travel to Europe.

Those shrooms grow on cow darn.  Just so you know.  That's really gross, and not even remotely cool.

Peyote, I've heard, will have you tripping for days at a time.  Apparently very potent stuff.  But I don't really know much about it.  It is the one drug I would possibly try if I were to ever get into that stuff, but only because of my native American heritage (which is really pretty distant, and so there's really not much use in me dabbling in it).

The one thing I've found alcohol to be good for is to make me sleep very soundly.  When I get a good night sleep after I drink a beer, let me tell you I'm happy I had that beer.

Is staying on task cool?

ZAP, I had a dream last night that I met you at Vanderbilt.  but you looked like the guy from your avatar awhile ago (the dave coulier lookin' dude).  And there was snow everywhere. 

 this leads to a second question.

Are dreams that include LSDers cool? (sub-question: Does it snow much at all in Nashville?)

Staying on task is sometimes cool, but it all depends on the context.

I think the Dave Coulier looking guy you're referring to is Bruce Campbell.  Who looks nothing like Dave Coulier in the Evil Dead movies, by the way.  I'm surprised you didn't recognize him, or have you not seen Evil Deads 1-3?  If not, now's the time.  Start with part 3 and work your way back... Army of Darkness stands on its own merits.

It rarely snows in Nashville.  When it does, everyone freaks out and drives ridiculously slow, and it takes forever to get home.  It pisses me off when they do that.

It's cool to dream about LSDers, so .7 cool points.

No, but that would be cool, so +1 cool point.  I have seen the work they've done with the homestarrunner.com crew though... weird.

ZAP

I like that song.  :-[

On another note, ZAP, have you ever seen They Might Be Giants live?


Exactly.

The proper response to my comment is singing, "I feel pretty...oh so pretty..."
a la West Side Story.

I think she was being serious.  See the picture?  She was smiling when she said it.

ZAP

keep the sarcasm to yourself, thanks  ;)

And buster is oh so pretty.

ZAP: Please do let us know.  I've at their 75% for GPA but way under for LSAT. 

&by the way, I never said congrats on the GW accept.  That must be exciting/relieving :)

Sorry, I forgot to revisit this thread.  But I did get into Minnesota, which tells me they probably are doing it based on 75% numbers... both of mine were over their threshold. 

Minnesota over GW?  Not sure, but I think I'd take Minnesota.  It's still early in the process for me though, and I still have 14 schools to hear from (mostly pretty much auto-dings, but maybe some not).  I'm also in at W+L, and that has to factor into the calculation.  I hope to be in at Vandy... if that's the case, that will be a huge one to decide over, since I'm already in Nashville and enjoy a low cost of living.  But we'll see how it pans out, I think it's always better to have too many choices than too few!

I hope Minnesota goes on and lets you in after they're done deferring.  I really do think they mostly admit autoadmits early on, from what I've seen.

Stop trying to assign the cool points!  I'll take care of that... you're still sitting pretty where you were.

ZAP

oh, you're right, then!

-1 cool point for me (damn, that brings me back down to .9)


uh...not cool

...my automatic darn list.

ZAP

Complain to Andrew, not me.  I was mocking the profanity filter like an ironic hipster.  Thus, very cool.
