The admissions office just told me that all decisions will be postmarked April 1st and since I have some deposits due April 1st I can call and receive my decision over the phone. JUST REJECT ME ALREADY AND PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY!Funny, I called this morning and the lady said that those not mailed out April 1 were either waitlisted or denied. What is going on here? Maybe there was a change of plan in a few hours? Or, more likely, they don't know what the hell is going on.
Theres a lot of white people who are threatened by us, so its not far-out to say Never2bsy was just some white dude who planned on stymieing the efforts of BLSDB.
Nobody is threatened by us. You know what, I think your ass is fake. As this is the dumbest sh!t I've heard since the last time you've said some dumb sh!t
Black Professional Women in the work place:
Ladies most of us are going into the corporate sector. I was wondering how do you think you might perceive other blacks in the work place? Will you maintain a professional decorum or let your guard down b/c the individual shares the same skin color as you? Essence Magazine recently did an article about black female relationships in the work force and the competitiveness that comes with it. Here is an excerpt of the article.
i hope people aren't going to be annoyed by my behavior and think that i'm jealous or a hater or some nonsense. i just don't really talk to females-- nevermind black females. the few friends i have at any one point have always been primarily non-black guys, and i don't see any reason that that would change in the future. i'm really not very friendly, and i hope it doesn't come off the wrong way.
I've asked the same two professors for recommendations for everything I've ever needed recommendations for - internships, scholarship apps, law school apps, etc. I bet they have form letters for me by now!
If you're not very close with any professors but you need a recommendation anyway, here's what you should do: Go to the professor's office hours to ask for a recommendation letter. Sit down and talk to the professor about your career goals, your reasons for wanting to go to law school, why you think you'd be good at law school, and some of your academic interests. That will help your professor get to know you better in a very focused way, and at the same time give him/her something to write about in the letter instead of just saying "this person did well in my class".
I got an email from the admissions crew at GW today, letting me know that my application is still with the AC. Whaddya think -- good, bad, indifferent?
Blah. That's how I feel at this point!
