Help someone off the waiting list
« on: February 22, 2004, 10:07:43 PM »
So you've been accepted to UCLA, USC, Loyola, Pepperdine, Southwestern, and Whittier all with full scholarships.  And while you're still trying to make your final decision, you know you wont go to Pepperdine for sure.  Give your spot back ASAP.  There are people on the waiting lists at EVERY school regardless of its ranking.  Those students want and need you to say thanks but no thanks.

Maybe that's a little dramatic but seriously, it's unethical to hold spots at schools that you KNOW you wont attend.  Let the schools know ASAP that you wont be joining them in the Fall so they can give the spot to someone else. 

Do your part for humanity and make some waiting student's day a little brighter.

I gave my spot at Southwestern back on Monday! Yay for someone else who needs a scholarship or a seat! Now if someone who has a scholarship at Loyola would decide not to attend I would be one happy camper...

I "gave back" my seats at NESL, Denver, NYLS, and UMaine.

Still waiting for that good karma to come my way...so if any of you are thinking of turning down an admissions offer to BYU, please do it :)
