If you can believe it, that's its good side. If you view it from the other direction you can see that the base of it is actually smaller/narrower than the top (by like maybe 20 feet on both dimensions). It really doesn't look like it should be able to stand. It's architecturally unsound.

it's called "brutalist" architecture. barf.


I visited this weekend and my tour guide said that the building was landmarked because of its unique architecture and that if they open new facilities, they wouldn't be able to tear down that... yeah, monstrosity is the word. God. So ugly.

I believe it. My eyes are brutalized every day that I walk by it.

I have sadly been doomed to studying in buildings that look like this on otherwise beautiful campuses. First, I did my undergrad here:

but in a building that was originally meant to be a parking garage (that is not me in the picture, just something I pulled off the interwebz):

Image

Then I went to the University of Cambridge:

And ended up here:

That is not an observatory. That is just the dining hall. Why?!?

Come to think of it, I think breaking this cycle was one of my reasons for choosing Michigan Law.

Hey UF,

Thanks for getting back to me with that letter of acceptance. I realize that I have spent the last five years, hoping to gain admission into your 'prestigious' walls, but I have recently made a new friend. So, feel free to stuff your acceptance letter into whatever orifice you exuded it from, as I will be off, frolicking with my new friend Emory, a school that won't doom me to a legal career in Florida.

Much Love,
Gotcha

Well... Technically, it's a ding. It's just Gotcha's ding to UF, not the other way around...

This is my favorite thread, and if this continues, Ding Bar will be overrun with H kids gloating that they will never step foot near sTTTanford. /slippery slope argument

Haha, fair enough but I have been waiting a while now for UF to send me that letter just so I could do this. I did a real one many many pages ago, this felt better.

I think there's a place for you. You should start the "Reverse Ding Bar" thread.

Nah, I'm done now. Cycle's over, last few days on TLS until I have some wisdom to impart on Emory applicants next year.

Dear University of Houston,

Thank you for your ding. Now I can return that Kevlar jacket and helmet.

I heard on the news the other day that Houston is considered worse than Harlem now regarding crime.

I got dinged the same day; thanks for keeping me safe, UH!

Harlem isn't crime ridden. Try another borough.
