I thought californianauser (sp?) was planning to create it? Not sure if he said it was going to be made available before or after December results come in.

Give how folks are drinking the haterade against URMs like applelover, I think our spreadsheet should be populated on a discretionary basis with two designated persons having exclusive rights to edit. I know other spreadsheets on TLS have been tampered with when everyone gains access. Whose to say someone claiming to be a URM gains access and does similar? I dunno, just a thought. Of course, once everyone's cycle is complete, we can make the spreadsheet public.


Who hating. Who need to get roughed up? 8) 8)

One person apologized for how their message came off and said they didn't mean to offend me. That was nice of them. Maybe I overanalyzed.

What's really interesting are how many people lurk this thread but don't say anything. Most of my pms have come from URMs who I've never seen post anything.. Don't be scared to talk to us! We're all friendly ITT.

Also, I think that at the end of the cycle, we should make a thread like last years URMs with our stats and acceptances/denials/WLs.

So pissed at my LG score. I knew exactly what I was doing on that damn much game and second guessed myself and ended up wasting valuable time. -3 on the last game. sigh....

Anyway, for those who might need some motivation in studying. My initial diagnostic was a 137, it's possible.


Just wanted to say thanks for being honest about the initial diagnostic. Might not seem like a big deal but posts like that showing a 30 pt increase can only serve as inspiration to those of us still trying to get our scores up.

I'm actually really sad about not being able to participate in these so far. This week's mission: Get my post count above 100.

I mean, I look at it the same way that I look at fried chicken. Am I black? Yes. Do I like fried chicken? Yes. But so does every other non-vegetarian person that I've ever met.


And macaroni and cheese is even better because vegetarians like it too! Only vegans and the lactose-intolerant miss out on this one. :D
In all seriousness though, I didn't mean to imply that I find it delicious because I'm black. I didn't even know that macaroni and cheese was a black "thing" (in the stereotypical way fried chicken is) because where I'm from it's so ubiquitous that it's practically its own food group. Which makes sense. How could anyone resist its warm, nostalgia-inducing, cheesy goodness?

This. I'll be making some for lunch shortly. :D

I figure there is no point in doing it this early because people will need to update 10+ times if we start assembling information now. I think around February/March would be a good time; however, if someone wants to start one now, I'm all for it -- it just won't be me. I'd rather submit all my information at once at the end of my cycle.

No reason to be anything but honest about it. Glad it can motivate someone to keep pushing
