always love a good shout-out, mallard....particularly when i'm dead wrong :)


Don't be too hard on yourself.

1. The list did indeed correspond with the badger scan.
2. The badger scan did have some noteworthy dissimilarities to data published by schools.

The only reason I remained on the waitlist at GW was to say I got into a T20 school, if accepted. Time to withdraw from there! Not moving from the Wisconsin WL, though :mrgreen:

1. Mandelbaum posts a list of schools he texted to himself after paging through a copy at Penn Station.
2. Ken says it looks like it might be a real list.
3. Several posters, including doyleoil and myself, note its similarity to the supposedly discredited critical badger list.
4. Arguments ensue.
5. OperaSoprano gets a cab to Penn Station and buys the book.

It's pretty cool, but I'm not that big of a rankings whore (prob. why Wisconsin is still tops on my list)

Still THRILLED about Illinois though!

It wasn't the skepticism; it was the cockiness... not yours, per se, but oh-so-many others. Have I mentioned lately how good it feels to be vindicated?


Does this seriously make you feel good? :shock:

Yuck.

Ugly formatting is intact.

Looks as if the leak was someone getting a hold of a mockup.
