just a notice bump

Someone on XOXO posted today saying that they got off the waitlist.

numbers were 3.78, 172 and he wrote the optional essay, went to admitted students weekend

(was previously accepted to the Penn Phd in Philosophy program)

said that now a space will 'open' up at Chicago

bump to 1st page of waitlist threads

Now that a couple more Harvard and NYU waitlist offers have gone out, those accepting the offers may free up some Penn spaces

I heard from a good source that the Penn waitlist was like 200 people though, unranked, so it may be a crapshoot ::)

Good luck again.

He wasn't home and has to call them back today.  I hope he can sell them on me.

Hey, doc.  They rejected me outright, which in some ways is better than being strung along.  I hope it all works out for you, even though I already had visions of you, me, and alphabeta forming the study group to end all study groups!

You know you miss the highs, the lows, and the creamy middles of waiting to hear from a school!
I would say that it is most likely that i will be joining you next year.  When we get our schedules for the fall, if you want i'll run your schedule by my wife to see if there are any classes you should beg your way out of.  There are a couple of nut-jobs that teach some of the first year classes and just leave you unprepared, which my wife is learning now as she prepares for the DE bar.
