Ouch... Is this Good or Bad?
« on: December 07, 2005, 11:43:32 AM »
So I'm doing this online chat with Miami right now, and I ask a questiona about scholarships. One of the admissions people writes back something to the effect of, "scholarships will be considered shortly, we are very busy he moment." So I type, "Michael, I'm in no rush... it seems as if you have your hands full." Only when I typed it, I must have made a slight typo, because a message popped up saying I've used words that aren't allowed on the server. A big red warning type deal shows up on the text. Then the admissions guy asks me what the "bleep" was about. :-[

 :D Now they think I'm cussing at them!

What on earth "bleep" word could you have made?

Maybe "as" turned into "ass?" I don't know... that's what I said, too... "I don't know."

Maybe you accidentally added another S onto the end of as? Or maybe the filter is way sensitive and thought you were trying to mask cuss words when you used the ellipses between rush and it.

yeah, it is kinda funny... if it had happened to someone else, I'd be laughing. I don't think they'll have the time or the desire to match my chat registration info to my application info, anyway.

Well, it's certainly not good (unless Miami gives extra points for swearing), but I don't think it's all that bad, either.  Unless you have reason to think that the guy was legitimately offended, I wouldn't worry about it. 

But if you really are concerned, just shoot him a brief email explaining that his answer about the scholarships really didn't send you into a sudden rage, and it was just a typo.

I second the suggestion. Just in case it is an issue.

I sent them an email telling him it was a typo/accident... his response: "Thanks for your email. We were wondering about that. No problems."

Good thing I emailed. Thanks for the suggestion, Go Skins.
