So, Hastings was my first choice. I adored them and even talked to a professor (who is a friend of my sisters) about the school over the telephone. When my mother informed me of the ding letter I was pretty bummed, but figured it was bound to happen. She read the letter sparsely over the phone and said something about my being turned down to an incomplete application.
I asked her to mail the letter to me. I emailed them and they said I didn't answer question 8 from the LEOP form. I downloaded my application via LSAC to check to see what question it was and how i answered it........
I answered it fully.
The rub lies in the fact that they sent me a confirmation email saying my application was complete....... but later sent an email saying it was uncomplete a few days afterwards.
That email was filtered to my junk mail by hotmail.
So, this whole time I thought I had a complete application, I did not... but actually did.
I'm at work right now, and don't get off for another five or so hours. My arms are shaky and I have this utter desire to just burst into a tear or two. I know I was a bit of a long shot, but I had good references and was just kinda sorta hopin. Oh.... bother. Now its either USF or Southwestern..... unless Loyola lets me in by the graces of god.... (turned in my application late)
Oh, cruel world..... release me from this tainted orb.
