Kinda crazy. I wonder why they're that concerned with having their class absolutely packed.


Oh, fuck me! Seriously?

This was a more measured way of what I was trying to say above.

I'm right there with you. That's not saying it won't drive me crazy though.

What do you want to know from Harvard? Same thing I imagine? I probably couldn't call and ask for a decision on your file, that would be rather silly.


According to Harvard, they keep an active waitlist right up until classes start. I wonder if S does the same thing.

Oh God, that sucks. I hope Stanford doesn't do that. I'm coming up against another school's OCI/EIW the week after next.

At some point (before H starts) I'll actually be back in school. That may be the point of no return for me.

Berkeley (the school I'm transferring to) starts a full five weeks before Stanford. :shock:

I'm pretty content with staying at my 1L firm next summer, so it wouldn't upset me too much if mass mailing doesn't result in anything. I'm mostly interested in the future door-opening rather than my first job, so missing EIP is fine.

Also the PREFTIGE.

At least we can tell ourselves we're special snowflakes for making it to the bitter end.

Dinged as well. Folks, it's been real. Dare I write H and say I only accept rejections in signed writing?
