You should. Take a break from saying "methinks" too.


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


You clearly don't get jokes. Or need to reread my post in its intended form.

I recommend Dany. Des is convinced she is engaged. You don't want that kind of delusional lady in your life.

iowastud, you are my favorite.

rawl, thank you for your consideration of my request, but I understand this has been a record year for applications, and you cannot come close to admitting every hopeful into your loving arms. Therefore, even though it was not the news I wanted to hear initially, I have been put on a waitlist, contingent on Dany's response, since she will contribute more to the growth and rigor of your penis.

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.

Is it really record year? I was under the impression applicant numbers were down. I have been getting fee waivers from schools my numbers are not strong enough for and thought this might be the reason.

FTR, already have one ding notch in the leathery belt, but feel I may jinx myself if I write ding bar entry before hearing back from othet schools (all reaches).

Sorry. Should have added the caveat: that was loosely based on my waitlist email from UVA during 2010-2011 cycle. Very loosely. As loose as say.... [choose your own adventure!]

What is the etymology of "Ding" being used to mean rejected from law school? I can't seem to figure out why this term is used.

Can we recruit Crumps (since she's so bored) and come up with a chain of lounge threads that link to each other, old school choose your own adventure book style?

Dear UVA,

Your breathless, melodramatic email notifying me that I'm on your waitlist gave me a good chuckle at work today. No, I'm not "disappointed and confused" by your offer. I'm rather indifferent, truth be told, for a more charming suitor has already won my heart.

I'll call you sometime from Hyde Park.

XOXO,

What up University of Michigan,
Hey is it cool if I tell my friends and family that you put me on the waitlist and then I just decided to withdraw? I was really counting on you to come thru for me on this one so I can bargain better scholly offers from other schools but its cool I ain't even mad at cha.

+2 for "disappointed and confused" - sounds like UVA forgot whether they were writing a romance novel or a WL e-mail.

[Some stuff about competitive app pool, and noting we are on WL]

Based upon applicant behavior in past years, we anticipate that those who are being invited to be on our wait list will respond in one of two ways:

(1) I am very interested in Virginia Law and will be pleased to consider an offer of admission whenever it may come.

(2) I am disappointed and confused. I already have been admitted to many great law schools. I need to make my decision now and do not want to wait for Virginia.

[Info about first reaction]

If your response is the second option, we would appreciate your letting us know that you do not wish to wait with us. You are a talented candidate. We know you will excel in your legal studies and contribute much to our profession. We appreciate the interest you have shown in Virginia Law and wish you great success in your personal and professional endeavors.


Anyways, +3 on the WL, and glad that my least favorite of the MVP decided to WL me after I got into the other two :D

Dear UPenn,

I know my brother dumped you after a year and went somewhere exotic, while my cousin's fellowship really was a short-term fling.
That doesn't mean I wouldn't be willing to commit, even if philly really is the ugly stepsister of the east coast. Just because Boston has more class, NY has more money, and DC is popular, that doesn't mean that I woulnd't be willing to settle, at least, for a few years.
Of course, your country cousins in connecticut might be more desirable, but I figured, well, it is easier to get into your campus.

I must ask, was it my breath? I wouldn't expect you to be able to smell the difference, considering your neighbourhood.

Wow, my waitlist e-mail (I was waitlisted in November) did not include this language. But it sounds awfully pretentious and self-righteous. Fuck UVA
