Thanks MC! And no, they dinged me. My low GPA (for Boalt) and the nullification of my URM-card was pretty much Javert-Kryptonite.
LOL. That's great. Mad props, Javert.

Actually, there's a further story here:
The mailman was pulling up to my mailbox just as I was heading out to lunch. I waited patiently, but THEN HIS f-ing CELL PHONE RANG and he had a three minute conversation before I could get my mail. In the name of all that is holy, that was the longest three minutes of my life. To make matters worse, at the Chinese restaurant, my fortune was, "A great honor will be bestowed on you today". There is a God, and He hates me.
