I saw a episode of true life on MTV about "I'm a gambler" and one of the guys that was on it got into law school and they filmed him calling the law school back telling them he is deciding not to go to law school.

He was making way more money gambling, and every time they were talking about him it was girls dancing all over him in Vegas or shots of him winning in poker. I understand his decision.

I did, I like to act like I am dealing with human beings through this highly impersonal process. I also don't mind if my name sticks out when I arrive on campus.

Unless you accidentally send it to the "Do not respond" address, accidentally clogging the server so that it shorts out and takes the entire school's network down with it, and then three IT guys die trying to put out the electrical fire it caused which ends up burning up a quarter of the campus... :shock:

Haha, I saw that episode. In the end he still had to work full-time to support himself.

No. My kissing of their asses ceases once I'm accepted.

Once the ball reaches my court, it's time for my ass to be kissed.

I didn't, but I did come by in person the next day the school was open to drop off my seat acceptance check, and I think they could tell I was happy.
