Dear Mr. or Ms. Adcomm,Now you've gone and done it. You've ruined my Christmas. All I wanted was an acceptance letter and maybe a small scholarship from your school before Christmas. Is that too much to ask? I've been good all year! I hope you're happy and may your eggnog turn sour. Sincerely,dotlyn (the unhappiest elf)
Let me tell you about reezy's day. He woke up at 11:15 with the worst hangover in America. He opened his wallet to find a $77 credit card receipt from the nearest bar... apparently, he bought a round of Cuervo shots for his 9 closest friends. By 1:30 this afternoon, his hangover has reached epic proportions; he doesn't even call the dealership to tell them that he won't be able to bring his car in for service this afternoon. At 2:30, in the heat of an LSD debate about racism and LS admissions, the hangover hits fever pitch and reezy actually runs to the bathroom and yorks. This is a full 12 hours after I've stopped drinking, mind you.Now, at 3:40 in the afternoon and still in bed with his laptop on his chest, reezy hears his cell phone ring. Could it be Emory? Wake Forest? Some other law school? He slowly looks at the caller ID, hoping for it to a 404 area code from Atlanta... And it's not. Total letdown. It's just my old high school buddy Jason, who has secured 4 tickets to the Cavs/Lakers game tonight. Suddenly, the day is looking up; reezy understands that there are more important phone calls than those from Dean so-and-so from wherever. (Game's on TNT, reezy will be 12 rows back behind the Lakers' bench. Black northface, bloodshot hangover eyes... You can't miss me.)
Quote from: reezy on December 20, 2007, 03:14:54 PMI've been passed over by Wake and Emory for no good reason, and by Vanderbilt for plenty of reasons; I was also hoping for a little bit more resolution by Christmas (although I'm blessed to have Ohio State in the bag).Anyway, I know how you feel, dot. And if UF doesn't hurry up and let you in, I'm going to get angry.Emory just started with accepts, so you can't claim "passed over" yet.but I think I can claim W&M took a pass. it's a crapshoot, it really is.
