monkey, it wasn't a "rant," it was more of a terse F.Y.I.
i realize that fee waivers aren't auto-accepts. in fact, i'm pretty sure of the reason that i was waitlisted:
*my numbers are good, so W&M didn't want to reject me outright (just in case they needed to improve their lsat median or something).
*so why the waitlist? W&M is a super-conservative place. whereas, i'm a leftist animal-rights activist who has spent the past 4 years causing all sorts of ruckus at my school (a very liberal place)
. my resume is full of "scary" stuff (i.e. students for sensible drug policy, environmental activism, etc.) and my personal statement discusses activist leanings, animal rights and my opposition to the death penalty. further, my best letter of recommendation concludes with something to the effect of, "'moocow' makes waves. i predict that it will be categorically impossible for him not to turn a school's political climate upside down..."
william and mary probably wants to keep me as far from their conservative playground as possible. but, just in case they need to offset their numbers, they have the 'moocow' option...
all that being said, THEY STILL SUCK FOR SENDING ME A FEE WAIVER AND NOT ACCEPTING ME!
