"We are Pleased"
« on: April 26, 2006, 01:12:09 PM »
Note to all law schools:  Do not send a letter to those on the waitlist that starts with "We are pleased" unless it is an acceptance!!!   That is how the e-mail I got today from Washington University started. 

(It read "We are pleased...to learn of your continued interest in Washington University School of Law) (I added the ...)

That would be really annoying. I'm on so many waitlists that I get annoyed about everything as soon as I hear that I'm on yet another one. I was so irritated that the response paper Pepperdine sent me wouldn't fit into the postage paid envelope they gave me! I ended up having to re-fold it all stupid and cram it in the envelope!  >:(

If I am waitlisted, I automatically drop the school from consideration.

Yeah, I am starting to get annoyed by waitlists too (I have a lot as well Autumn).   I am kind of with you yip, I have already withdrawn from 2 of the 5 waitlisted, and Wash U may now be a 3rd. I am holding onto GW and Emory because GW seems to do a big first round notification in early May and Emory will rank their waitlist in May (So I can find out my chances).

Also, law schools, do not send anything in a large white envelope unless it is an acceptance.  Any thing else should be in sent in the same dirty brown wrapper as  pornography to better match the color of my despair upon opening another GD alumni magazine.

 :D  Agreed.

I like your song titles for decisons on your signature (Weezer rocks!)   Is "only in Dreams" your waitlist category?   What school are you leaning towards right now?

This is one of those situations where nobody who isn't applying to law schools would understand.  Damn law schools.

Greatest band in the land.  "Only is dreams" is the waitlist category, as it doubles as my favorite song and most of the Big Ten's favorite response to my application.  

I'm headed to the University of Minnesota.  Just got the call from admissions yesterday.  Which way are you leaning?

Only in Dreams is my fav also! (My highschool senior quote was from the song). 

I change my mind everyday as to which way I am leaning...I guess a slight advantage to BC.   If I end up getting accepted to Minn, that might shake things up a bit.  Seeing as how a bunch of people got acceptance phone calls yesterday (and I haven't heard anything yet), it is not looking so hot.
