Got the small envelope today. Letter dated 3/4/05, postmarked 03/07.

Anyway, I'm posting this just for statistical information; nobody post "I'm sorry" or anything like that. I'm very happy with where I'm in at. Anyway, good luck to everybody else left in the applicant pool! [And I wasn't 'held' at any point either; this is the first I've  heard from them since my complete notice.].

PS: The ding is also an excellent coaster/napkin. ;).

PPS: The only explanation for this ding is yield protection.

PPPS: That, or they read my old "Cat Picture Friday" threads and decided they didn't like my cats.

PPPPS: Or they just hate America and are siding with the terrorists. That must be it!

Thanks Pookie!

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.

Thank you!

Yeah, I gotta give it a 2.

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.

I can do better than thirty-five cents! I have an idea for a schtick that will be funny and utterly, utterly, tasteless. In other words, it matches my personality brilliantly. Stay tuned. ;).

Pookie—Thanks for the links! Luckily, I don't think anybody has tried my idea yet...
