I think he's just scared his friend IRL screwed over one of my best friends. My scary reputation and all ;)

(Well, I'm not sure if he's actually friends with him.  But they know each other.) 

The Bass is BACK!  And with news, but more on that in a moment.

I know your friend?  I wonder who...


Here's the news:  I AM IN THIS THREAD BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN HELD AT HARVARD!!!

There are several people who committed to hat-eating and the like (you know who you are)...well get those derbies ready!!!

No kidding.  I almost didn't apply to Yale because I had my heart set on Harvard.  Well...maybe not anymore.

Since the first two batches virtually no one with less than a 175 has been accepted according to LSN...

But why wasn't I in an earlier batch?  I applied at the first possible instant.

i think you both will be getting in eventually.  i wouldn't make any judgments on your chances based on last year's holds.  TS has made this quite the odd process.  (but i just can't see them not admitting you guys)

If I knew precisely how the process works I'd tell you, but I can hypothesize:

-Its doubtful that TStock reads EVERY application...
-Presumably there might be four of five "initial readers" who skim applications - if they are very impressed with one, they forward it on to TStock for approval to make "the call"
-Obviously every reader is different, and some prefer LSAT, while others prefer ECs, etc
-Your reader may have been : 175+ or bust, and put you in the "look at later" pile.. :-\  :P

Thanks lovelove ;)

I'm not very optomistic about that...but I've sent in all the additional materials I had...and I"m just not gonna worry about it, because life is too short ;)
