Then he is doing it wrong.


Wrong or right that's what he said, here's the thread...

All WLs this year are autoadmits in Sept?!

Pless:
The vast majority are. Unlike some places, I don't put people on the waitlist unless I think they are admissible to my school. It is almost always a question of space.

This is taking a turn towards pessimism town.... OP, you still have good figures, why don't you rapid-fire off some more late applications for a few safety options? Just know.... UR(nota)M. ;)

Is that a self tar? Impressive. Those abs would cause a situation if you were just walking down the beach shirtless.

I'm no stranger to situations, but now that I'm married I can't have situations with strangers. But to answer your question: It's a fair likeness-tar.

This makes no sense to me! Was it because I applied to late (complete in Jan.)? Any ideas?


Having origin in Ecuador, Argentina, and Costa Rica does not qualify you for URM status. I hope you knew this going into the cycle. :shock:


pwned.

All celebs are odd as are comments about tars. I think you're taking it too seriously. It's an ironic nod to pop-culture and all the absurdity it ecompasses. BTW, your user would be funny without the "2."

This looks like a strung-out version of the dog above.... like after 5 hard years of heavy substance abuse after getting dinged by every LS you applied to b/c of a URM misunderstanding. ;)

Oh OP, there's hope... again, those are good figures, have you considered next cycle w/retake? If you score a 170 + your GPA I don't think you'd be shooting for UIUC anymore anyways!

Email fee waivers from Washington University and U of I. I'll use them for financial aid leverage, hopefully.

LOL. How's that working out for you?
