The irony is of course that he likely only withdrew at the end, to go to NYU with his love, who then got his (recently vacated) spot at HLS, and promptly dumped his ass. He was the agent of his own demise, poor bastard.

Oprah needs to hear about this one.

Is Jerry still on TV? I went to his show a few times (the tickets are free and it's right downtown) hopefully I don't get dinged on C&F.

Therein lies the peril of making life decisions without first consulting TLS.

ok I'll let it slide this time but next time I expect you to know everything about everything before you post..... Isn't that the TLS mantra?

So you both win.

No I definitely think he got the short end of the stick. Inferior school and he lost his girl. To think that just two short months ago he was getting factored in. :(



Don't you remember our new class motto?

You guys have a motto?

You don't really.

I got one too. Apparently she celebrated by going through all her old board posts and taunting everyone who didn't think she'd get in.

yale, no, but that's okay. (his ex goes there!!)


It's a shame, because looking at the stats, it seems like 172 is almost definitely a ding, but 173 would give you a shot at H. Also, I'm not knocking it, but assuming anyone does actually give a bump for UG Prestige/major, are they going to actually consider a gender and sexuality studies major more challenging than the standard fare they see on HLS apps, even from a top lib arts school?


in at harvard! bam. so i guess 172 wasnt a ding.

lmao is this your personality in real life too?

take your blessing and be grateful, don't be classless by bashing on others for giving you realistic advice that you happened to prove wrong. Congrats at getting into Harvard.

to be fair, most of this doesn't really sound like advice; it was more just trying to piss me off so i continued saying dumb, entertaining things for the benefit of people who live for/on TLS. twas my first post on tls and i actually just wanted to chat with others in a similar situation. ps we broke up 1.5 months before i got in to harvard.

"I think this is a thread for her to brag about her relationship, her major, her GPA and her deep, meaningful experience with the ghetto."

"typical east coast pretense and/or selfishness."

"Let me know how much of this characterization sounds correct. Both of them are from upper middle class backgrounds, their parents paying for the portion of their college that wasn't covered by modest merit scholarships.

Applying to law school with a vague sense that they want to do something positive for the world, they're not sure exactly what however, and they both end up OCI'ing to corporate firms. By the end of law school they've drifted apart, with only the memories of their college experience and their WASP backgrounds in common.

If they do get in fact get married however, divorce comes within four years after a serial run of affairs by the guy."

"1) he's probably not 'the one'
2) Sleeping around is ok
3) I'm too young to make mature decisions"

"reminds of of the 'NEEDNEEDNEED a baby' girl"

"It frustrates me that tards like the OP get to go to a better law school than me based on 6 questions out of 101 on a marginally predictive test and getting their hand held at a grade inflating private school."

one thing I realized the first few days of being on TLS is that if you don't have thick skin, you're going to get easily affected by what people say here, and people here are brutal. Sometimes they're brutal to be honest and realistic about your chances (which is helpful) and sometimes it's just people with shitty personalities who just want to watch you burn, usually because they're jealous. If you'd rather avoid the drama then I wouldn't use TLS as a forum for anything personal or in any matter where you would expect some congenial environment that you experience on some other forums.

Don't let some randoms on the internet affect your emotions. At the end of the day, TLS is merely some nerdy internet forum with regulars that just have too much free time on their hands and would rather spend it on the internet forums all day

Typically doing anything other than intercourse or eating with your significant other is never enjoyable. HTH
