sorry bout HLS, guys.  there was some discussion earlier about whether it would actually be better to get a rejection on paper...i sort of prefer the email version.

True, I was able to delete the e-mail along with all other e-mail correspondence from them, permanently delete all the e-mail in my trash can, and then pretend I never even applied (until now).   But shredding a rejection letter would have been fun as well.

I am going to shut up now because I am starting to sound mildly insane.

oh when i was in high school i applied to like fourteen schools (same deal, i was a huge splitter in HS)
and was rejected from eleven
i taped up each rejection on my locker, and it was very popular wall of shame, including rejections from BC, Tufts, Rice, Michigan...

but that was okay, because i had already been accepted at Penn.

i think i'm going to enjoy that USC and vandy rejection about now.

Considering the form of the e-mail I was surprised they deigned to respond to me at all.  I figured they would just never acknowledge that they had spent any time on such an applicant.

i think this is maybe my case
i got the e-mail informing me of the status checker URL like 3 weeks ago (i've been complete since late Nov, 4 weeks after my apps were sent)

and i'm STILL under review. i think they threw out my app and never even bothered to update the status checker

Anyone know how to access the PDF files in the accepted students website? It asks for username/password.

I want to see it for myself.

So I applied in October, not ED
and got one of those "we're still looking at stuff" email from Dean Z. The email that everyone thought was a deferral.

And like, ok, so I should send in "additional material". But I've been very, real, super busy at work and with real life. And began work on the additional essay just this past weekend.

and just now i check the status again. It says DECISION.

for i'm pretty sure that this is a rejection, i'm totally like. sigh. i should just have gone out last weekend.

sigh. pplease get here soon.

i had been dating a beautiful and sophisticated girl who happened (happens still) to be the love of my life for a year and a half when she was a music major and didn't know what she wanted out of life, except that she probably wanted to spend it with me, and maybe teach music at a high school near wherever i'd end up practicing, maybe NYC or boston or DC or wherever.
and then she decided that she hated her UG and its lack of prestige and wanted to make up for it by going to a T5 law school. and a V7 firm. and all that good stuff.

so that was the end of all that.


i mean, that break up had its own host of issues.
but do i want a biglaw wife? most certainly not. i'd probably want someone with a normal 9-to-6 job to come home and fix the kids dinner. but this is a terribly selfish thing to want, i realize.
