I was accepted at Georgetown over a month ago, but you felt the need to WL me today. Good luck to you and to your class of 2015, who have to compete against my GULC or NYU degree in the job market.

Love,

CQ


UPDATE: Or UVA degree.

I am still pissed at you, GW. This grudge WILL be held. Forever.

UCBerkeley:

I understand that it was a long shot at best. I am honored to have you be my first ding of the cycle, and I wish the Boalt class of 2015 the best.

Oh wait...who am I kidding...OKAY BOALT. What is this. WHAT. IS. THIS. What, am I too liberal for you?

ETA: sorry for the lack of entertaining snark. Sick vpintz = lack of snark.

It was pretty good execution. Sometimes it's hard for people to detect subtlety on the internet, though (often, not by their own fault). Loved it. :lol:

Dear Michigan,

Thanks for sending me back here, always a great feeling. I will always remember MLK day as the day Michigan found the courage to ding a URM. Go fuck yourself.

Ford = a crappy vehicle.
Ham = a pig's meat.
Ergo, Fordham = a crappy school run by pigs.
Like I care that you dinged me.
They have to put "At Lincoln Center" on all their correspondence to remind people that they are on the Upper West Side. The flip side of this is that if the school were in Queens, it would basically be St. John's.

You popped my ding cherry. I'd been around your adcomms office for the last few months and, admittedly, I have been hanging around the seedier side of the applicant pool. Nothing about my numerical standing as an applicant led me to believe you would make me yours so much as all the rumors about how gentle you were to soft applicants. You weren't easy on me though, and your ding was a lot bigger than I expected; I didn't know what I was in for and the double penetration "status checker/snail mail" trick really caught me from behind.

I'm not ashamed that you were my first, though I'll be the first to admit you could have been my last if your commitment was compelling enough to keep me off the market. Now I am left changing my sheets from the mess you left me with. Your daily updates really wore me down, so part of me is glad that its over for us.

But, thanks to you, I know that once I heal up I'll be able to have the shit dinged out of me and it won't be nearly so bad as my first.


This is awesome.

Also,

Dear University of Michigan Ann Arbor,

You were a reach for me, and your ding did not surprise me. Your "daily-updated-yet-not-supposed-to-mean-anything" status checker is too much for me to take, and I'm glad it's finally over./bitter

But I still 3< you

^ +1. Seems like you're upset you didn't get preferential treatment on the basis of an ascribed characteristic. Not quite sure if this is what MLK's message was about...

I actually thought it was pretty funny. The Ding Bar is all about oozing entitlement and expressing contempt toward those you are too good for, anyway. (I'm looking at you, Fordham.)

It would take heaps of courage to ding someone like rawl, and the ladies of tls are nothing if not cowards.

Okay everyone... let's not become dicks. If we are in the DING bar we need support not criticism... even if it is meant to be a joke
