Think I am getting a double-whammy
« on: January 11, 2005, 04:11:20 PM »
My roommate just contacted me to let me know that I got a small envelope from Baylor Law and a psudo eviction from the head of the house I am at...trying to decide on what's worse. Not a good time to be me at the moment....not like there was ever a good time ;)

MidJeep,

You seem to be the Job (as in the bible guy) of the board.  Here's some encouragement:

Lincoln had a nervous break down years before he became Pres.

Michael Jordan was passed up by 2 teams before he was drafted

and I hear that Einstein didn't do so hot in school

It just takes one, and then it will all be in your hands from there.

Thanks, but I think Job would have killed himself by now....I haven't even disclose my family problems yet (One day soon, I am going to make someone a very rich shrink :D). But if I don't get in anywhere I won't be as disappointed and depressed as I was last year....some things weren't meant to be (I can even apply again later on in life, but I can only deal with so much stress at one time). At least I have my job still (knock on wood). 8)

MidJeep..... I sent you all of my good karma. Where'd you put it?? Are you sure your roommate isn't messing with your head? Surely no one's is that unlucky.... right?  :'(

Well before this all makes it to the tabloids....damn paparazzi been following me everywhere I go...the letter was a false alarm, just another "we received your application and give you a decision when we damn well feel like" or something like that. I really don't pay attention after the "Dear" part of the letter ;)

Doesn't it seem like they should at least send you a t-shirt or a coffee mug or something for your fourth application? An autographed photo of the Dean?

Actually this is now my 5th application to Baylor Law. If anything I should get a bumper sticker for my parents with the words "My Kid is a Law School Reject." It will fit nicely next to my younger brother's "My Kid is an Honor Roll Student." Every family has a favorite.

Maybe they will give you points for persistence.  Shoot, I would!  If someone had applied 5 times, I would let them in because you know that they are 1) going to want it worse than anyone else in the class and 2) never give up!

BTW...thanks for the copy of your intent letters.  When I finnish mine I will email it to you. :)

Not to take away from midjeep's extraordinary story, but there are people, with worse credentials, who have been even more persistent. If you give me a little bit of time, I will locate a specific case, which is fairly unique in itself.
