Both Dean Z and Dean C loved me at ASW.

Dean Z loves everybody man. And I love her. What a great person!

Toby is known to grant week long extensions to people who are undecided.

Like, people choosing big money and CCNMVP over H. He gives them a week to try to make them think too much about it and get them back.


So, I'd expect a week from today would be close.

Well, alright. I have no idea how you get this information or if you're just making it up, but it makes sense and checks out with last year's LSN dates so I'll go with it. Thanks.

And did anyone get confirmation that they received your WL form? I didn't and I heard one other guy say he didn't so I assume there just isn't any, but I'd be remiss to find out I got screwed out of Harvard by the USPS. Especially considering HLS filled in the return address the same as the delivery address (but of course different than the address they told you to send it to in the letter) what was up with that?

PS -- And did you really get a handwritten note on your WL form, Smails? I can't believe you're that peesimistic about your chances if you did. So, if so, cheer up.

I haven't heard of anyone else who got one and they're going to take some people off their monster wait list so I'm mean come on... .o6? Either the note or the .06 is b.s., but I can't tell for sure which.

NAh, I got a little note.  One sentence, but reassuring.

But it's hard to be optimistic when they're holding 500 players in reserve.

That should be quite reassuring, I have a hard time believing you'd be the only one who got a note and not one of the ones who will get in. You have to remember that the pool of 500 only got form letters while they took extra effort for you.

Yeah, it seems as though most of the WL---acceptances come in May or early June. Some people should be getting phone call emails soon, I imagine.

I called today and asked about taking the June LSAT.  They said that it wouldn't help at all, and almost all decisions are made by then anyway.  Has anyone heard anything different from the admissions office?

Thanks for asking.  I will quit thinking about it.

The appropriateness of Perpetua would probably depend on the tone of the writing.  When I used it, I (half playfully) thought the extra space made the words sort of resonate.

numbers are low 170's, 3.9x...still grasping at anonymity, though it's probably unnecessary now, if you are interested in specifics, pm me

hope you are right about the odds being good, seems like it would be cruel to make me consider changing my plans and then not let me in :)
