Not really.  Call me a fair-weather fan... there's rarely fair weather in Miami.  ;)

I try to split time between UCLA, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Miami.  Right now I'm on a Notre Dame kick.  If only WashU had real sports... <sigh>

It's lame to admit, but when I got waivers from Duke and Michigan, I was lamenting the fact that I'm planning on attending a school with no decent sports.  Of course... I couldn't go to Michigan, or my ex-wife would murder me.  She hates me enough as it is.

Then again, St. Louis has pro baseball (the best!), football, and hockey, and usually gets one of the NCAA tourney... so it's not exactly South Bend. ;)

Perfect timing.  My second LOR just got added yesterday, and I'm finishing my application today.  If anyone has a question they want me to ask the adcomms, let me know!

I would love to go to WUSTL.  I just don't think my numbers will get me in :( And even if they did, $33,000/year is no good for public interest. (sigh)

Q:  If we really, really value WashU, is it wise to dip our application in liquid gold or encrust it with jewels?


A:  it wouldn't hurt if it came dipped in chocolate

I'm glad you like my work.  And here I thought I'd be immediately recognizable based on only my charm and devotion to the school.   ;D

I thought that was you!  I should have sent them right over here to LSD so they could see how devoted you are. 

I missed the first half but then I was asking about the proportions of ED admits, I'm pretty boring.  But some of those people, good grief, why would you ask whether work experience is considered?  or whether you should submit a resume?  If you don't know the answer to those things you shouldn't be applying.
