In any case, you clearly missed the intentionally hyperbolic nature of my freak-out. 

I clearly missed?  Maybe.  Or you weren't clear enough that you were exaggerating.  Trust me, I've seen plenty of people on this board freak out over similar things.  What sets you apart from any other neurotic twit who thinks his self-worth is based upon his LSAT score and law school acceptance record?  Your post history shows that you have the prestige whoring necessary to be someone who would truly freak out.  In which case, I recommend that you either have a drink or get some prescription anxiety meds.
It's been brought to my attention that boss is my favorite poster  :-*

I returned a waitlist response sheet with two copies of emails sent to me from the Dean urging me to look forward to a scholarship. I declined to be waitlisted. Is there a better way to say F*ck you cos I'm really pissed right now, suggestions welcomed.

Aww, that sucks.  Just be sure not to burn any bridges b/c you never know when you might want the good connection.

Go get yourself a drink.

This was my main point

Well then, to clarify for all our sakes - it was largely hyperbolic and no I wasn't really actually freaking out.

What do you consider prestige-whoring though, wanting to get into the best school possible?

Why are you pissed?  Are you that overqualified that putting you on the waitlist is simply unthinkable?  Even if that were the case, there really isn't any reason to be pissed - you're applying for admission, not demanding it.

In general, it's best not to say f*ck you unless absolutely necessary.  You never know when you may need something from someone...

I do understand what you mean though about burning bridges. You make a lot of sense when you say that. However, I understand hushpuppy too. I mean, a freakin' dean tells you twice that you should look forward to a scholarship and then decides to waitlist you? C'mon, I will be overly pissed too and seriously, I really dont know how I would have reacted, probably worse than hushpuppy? I dont know. Well, too late now, Hushpuppy the good thing is, those suckers will know how you really feel. about time someone told 'em the truth. On the other hand, your relationship with them is sour for life. Lets hope it does not spill over.

I understand, and perhaps I did respond too harshly.  No offense was meant, I do apologize and sympathize with your frustration.  Hopefully you'll end up somewhere better anyway

I can't lie...prestige is a pretty good lay, though it's a bit of a stripper name if you ask me

I'd suggest you get over the sense of entitlement, but I don't expect that suggestion to go far.

There was a prior comment in this thread about burning bridges. In some ways, the law is not that large of a community.
