Denials / Re: Ding at Penn
« on: February 18, 2005, 08:35:20 PM »
Thanks. Yeah no letter at my house today, but I didn't get an email accept (which they seem to have sent some out today too) so its just neutral news.


Washington, DC.  I imagine if you didn't get the letter yet, you won't be getting one in this round of rejections.

Good Luck!

I got deferred as well (but wrote essays) and I really hope I don't get a ding in the mail today. I live about an hours drive from Philly, where do you live?




I am not crushed about the rejection.  I didn't have any intention of going there and I probably should have withdrawn.  Serves me right I suppose.

Came by snail mail, small white envelope.

Are you going to attend Duke? I probably am unless I get in somewhere else.

Acceptances / Re: Penn

I think if they were going for yield protection they would WL someone instead of rejecting them. That way it doesnt hurt their acceptance rate but if the person actually wants to go, they'll probably show interest and get in and then Penn gets someone they would love to have.



i'll add my congrats as well. Penn seems to be strange...it deferred people from EA who looked like auto admits by their numbers. they deferred 7 people on LSN who had a 175/3.7 or higher. perhaps they are going for that mysterious "whole person".

i'm confused about this too.  since my numbers are pretty high for penn (3.9, 175) i kind of expected to be rejected, because of this yield protection theory.  so i'm wondering, should i take it as an insult that i got into penn with high numbers?  they didn't send me a yield-protection rejection because they don't think i'll get into somewhere better?   i don't think that is the case, but it kind of made me wonder   :-\

Congrats all! Anyone who got deferred get a decision today? Does anyone want to speculate as to whether this was one big email of accepts including those that were deferrals or if there are going to be more emails?

I got deferred and saw someone on LSN got accepted today by email who was also deferred. Wondering whether my lack of email means anything...

Thats really clever. I agree its kind of stupid to worry about how many views one has. It just kind of bugged me that I couldn't figure out how you did it.




I don't think you did anything wrong. I'm honestly just curious to how you got 50K in a day or two. I don't see how someone could refresh their page that many times that fast.





aren't you disqualified now?

I got the idea from THalky.  I came across a post where he mentioned the f5 key could refresh a page.  All I did was balance a deck of cards on the f5 key and went out with my wife and some friends to see A Very Long Engagement.  When I came home, I found that my brother-in-law had removed the cards so I put them back on and went to bed.  When I woke up, I had 49k views.  I hadnít intended to get so many.  Feeling guilty, I gave Alcibiades a few thousand votes before I went to work.  I didnítí give Pookie any in case there was come kind of backlash where everyone who had their views boosted had them all taken away (it wouldnít be nice for her to go through that twice).

In truth, I think the whole top 50 views thing is kind of lame.  I was just looking for a way of distracting myself while I wait for decisions to come in.  I was disappointed when no one got in my face about it.



Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.  At least they didn't take away the couple of thousand votes I gave Alcibiades.

AMB22 might notice that he's suddenly become more popular.  Besides, what did I do wrong?  Views are views.
