Why do white people automatically assume A large number of blacks in a nightclub = Ghetto = Dangerous?

And this is coming from a white guy who likes black girls..."Oh that place went down hill, its really dangerous now." Have you ever been there? "No, but from what I hear, its very dangerous."

So black = dangerous?

Skype interview with UCLA tomorrow. I'm confused as to why they even want an interview instead of Dinging me. They're notorious for high GPAs so that counts me out. Then again with all that's going on, I don't even know how I would feel if I was to get accepted.

I kind of feel like they do URM calls and other calls separately. Maybe I'm just crazy? But I feel like I've been noticing that pattern.

Are all of us late January completes? This wait from SLS is killing me. I don't expect good news, but that tiny, tiny glimmer of hope just doesn't let me move on :)

I am and I believe Zero is. Isaiah is not.

And I feel you. I am hoping for good news, but I'm getting less optimistic the longer I wait. Stanford is prob my first choice, though, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

That's not always true. I got my call the same day as non-URM applicants.

Late January complete here as well. I've been refreshing frantically a few times per hour. Still UR = there is still a fighting chance.

I have been pretty much waitlisted to 6 schools this cycle so I know the struggle. It happens :-/.

So what's the process for withdrawing apps? I don't see the point in riding UVAs WL.

I've just emailed Admissions saying thanks for the offer of admission but I have decided not to enroll at xxxx. For waitlists, also just said thank but I have decided to withdraw my application at this time. No need to make it any longer or more elaborate than that. Other schools that I withdrew from let me do so directly online through the admitted students website.

Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone ITT. Obviously it'd be amazing if it happens for all, but at least one of us has to get in! C'mon Stanford, show us some love!

I'll probably start withdrawing from schools soon. I feel bad when alumni and current students call me and I have no questions because I'm not really interested in attending the school.
