I'm so damn stupid...

Postby BruceBarr » Fri Feb 05, 2010 12:16 am

I applied to Baylor as a back-up. Wait, scratch that. I applied to Baylor SPRING 2010 (not Fall) as a backup.

I got a letter of rejection from a school that I was over-qualified for saying that they chose to reject me based on the fact that there were no open positions. So, in a nutshell, I got rejected from my back-up because I'm so damn stupid.

Call them. If you're auto-admit, they might consider you for fall.

Or just apply somewhere better than Baylor.

Really, you know you in your heart you don't want to go to Baylor. That's why you goofed the app in the first place. No one wants to go to Baylor.

It was a divine intervention. Even God doesn't want me at Baylor.

Which clearly says something about the validity of their denominational affiliation.

Every single time I see that school mentioned, and I can't help but imagine this:

That's a Balor from D&D. It is the same pronunciation, correct? Bay-Lore?

Didn't that drop the affiliation "officially" a few years ago?

I'm more embarrassed that I admitted I applied to Baylor then the dude above me was embarrassed that he fluently knew a D&D character. It took me like 5 seconds to even figure out what D&D meant.

Why the hell didn't they wait list you?

Also you don't have to go to law school next academic year. Wait it out if you don't get a spot somewhere good.

Ha, no I've already gotten into schools I want to go to. Baylor was my backup... BUT, I applied for the wrong term.

Why do you care about Baylor if you've already gotten into better schools.
