Being on a waitlist has led to some interesting observations that I'm wondering if other people are experiencing.
First, has anyone noticed that time moves very distinctly when one is on a waitlist? An example is the 'do you still want to be on a waitlist' email that some have received recently. My version of that email said that they would be going to their waitlist by the end of this month. Now, I received this email 8 days ago. But before I actually looked it up, I could have SWORN that I got that email at LEAST a couple of weeks ago. It feels like being stuck in a slow motion scene in a movie.
Yet, when I look at the date on the calendar, and I still don’t know IF I’m going to law school or not (I had a very location-specific process this cycle), it seems like time is moving at a million miles an hour…with only 9 weeks left until orientation starts, I want to stop time, if that would allow my waitlist school time to figure out who they want.
The other observation (that mostly my friends have picked up on) is that I spend what is approaching an unhealthy amount of time looking at this board, lurking about in case there is any tiny morsel of information that might let me know my fate. They have sworn to beat me with a big stick if they hear me say one more time “well, I read on the board that….”.
Anyway, at least by posting this I’ll have new posts to read. You know it’s bad when you still don’t know if you are starting school this year, and people are already starting to post for the next cycle, LSN is preparing their 2005-06 stuff, etc...
