I didn't decide. I frankly don't think I can decide.
I deposited at Harvard, which did not require withdrawing from anywhere. And I didn't withdraw.
I told NU that I deposited at Harvard but was still unsure. They gave me until Wednesday at noon.I should mention, that NU upped my scholarship to 120k, which means they would refund 40k of last years tuition.
So you see, many on this board are probably jealous of me. Well, I can see being jealous of my success, or jealous of my opportunities. But don't be jealous of being me. Being me is not always fun.
No joking. I just hope it doesn't make a tax liability.
I don't think it does. It is not discharge of indebtedness, since I don't owe them the money, I owe gradplus. So it is a gift.
Holy jesus you are a dumb.
I'm actually going to give you an overall rating and a fortune. Social Intelligence:
The boundless lack of tact you've exhibited so far would make most assume a 3/10 is generous. But we have to realize that you're a law student, and you're not deviating that far from the mean here, especially given your (ineffective) shroud of anonymity. Academic Prowess:
You did very well at law school, but let's face it: There are people who did better at better schools, and even at yours you still missed law review. Common Sense:
This situation is relatively unique, so you aren't docked massive points for your confusion. Overall Score:
5.33 / 10Fortune:
Happiness, you think now, is just a word to you. But to those who seek happiness in immediate action, you see foolishness: Your payoff will be much larger even though it will be down the road. Slowly, however, that road will stretch out into infinity as you break every bone, muscle, and organ in your body chasing the fading light at the end of the tunnel.
You'll realize that you went wrong, but it won't be a sharp revelation. There will be no burst of light from the clouds, but rather an ever increasing sense of regret. Or perhaps not even that strong, because you'll get the brass rings. But as you hold them in your hand, place them on your finger, and thrust them into the air for all to gaze upon, it's not going to play out the way you thought it would in your head. They'll feel hollow and cheap on your hand, and the pleasure you thought they would bring will prove to be ephemeral. By then the pace will be too quick, and you'll be on to the next battle before you have time to realize the war has already been lost.
Like everyone else, you will die alone. As you pass from this earth having squandered your time, you won't even be afflicted with a need to look back. That's not how you work now, it's not how you'll work tomorrow, and it won't be how you work as death's embrace finally takes you. You will live the rest of your life blind to the majority of the world around you, and the total bleakness that is your existence.
