Even though it was a reach school you still need to give them the finger, it makes you feel better and you are too good for them anyway (thats how I look at it).

Out of curiosity, what was your WE?

Does this place have a Jukebox? Got WL'd and dinged from two Jesuit schools in which my LSAT and GPA is beyond their 75th percentile.

Was it the Jesuit admission decisions or the Wesley Willis that gave you the shock?

Oh names? Sure! Seattle U with the waitlist and St. Louis U with the ding. Sure I have made a big mistake in my life..but isn't Jesus all about forgiving? Kent offered me $$ and they are a tech aflliated school probably run by robots. Are robots more forgiving than Jesus????

I never really wanted to go to school there, so I guess you figured it out. That doesn't surprise me since you were involved with building the intersect. That being said, it sickens me that you allow the Ring to recruit on campus. And the way you treated Chuck Bartowski, well, it doesn't surprise me that the T3 will always be HY>>>>>>>>that other school on the west coast. Oh, and John Elway needs a haircut, hippie.

Sincerely,
Sauer Grapes (rather fitting screen name now, huh?)

PS, I didn't want to be a statistic when the big one hits anyway.


This made me LOL so much. Chuck FTW!

Been a while since I experienced WW ... wasn't prepared for it. Kind of like ordering a well drink and getting 95% liquor.

As you may have guessed. Wow lol that's outrageous.


You should have written back.

Now, THAT's outrageous and hilarious!!!!!!!

I only applied because I find girls with southern accents very sexy. But I've had your peaches and believe me I've tasted better!

Btw I'd really feel like an ass going to Georgia football games decked out in orange and blue. Glad I can avoid that now.


I literally LOL'ed

Dear Denver,

The market you are in sucks and so does the weather. Thanks for waitlisting me so I don't take up a spot for someone who really wants to attend your TTTTTTTTTTTTTT program.

P.S. I only applied because you sent me a fee waiver and my numbers would have risen your medians too much.

Georgia State

You will forever have a special place in my heart. While friends were drunk dialing X's I drunk applied to your school. I found your waitlist invitation to be very classy. You didn't once remind me of how I refered to Atlanta as "hotlanta" in my application. You also didn't mention that I refered to you as the Georgia State Bulldogs (hope that didn't hurt your feelings in my innegriated state I was clearly confused into thinking that you were a decent law school). You also kindly thanked me for my interest in your school (you look much more interesting with my beer goggles on).

Again thanks

btw since you have handeled this so graciously I have decided to change my x's phone number to the number for the admissions office. If I happen to text you a LOCI please don't take it seriously, there's just something about Mary.

Dear Vanderbilt,

Thank you for being classy enough to require me to snail mail respond to your "offer" to remain on your waitlist, but not provide me with postage or even an addressed envelope to return said "offer".

I really hope the $50 I gave you to review my application was used for some nice acceptance packages for others.

Hahahaha. +1 to roasting GA State. About as regional of a school as you can find, yet they are making a habit of waitlisting 160+'s. GSU, I understand that there are two other law schools in your state that are better than yours in every possible aspect, so I assume your preference for applicants with lower numbers is just a sign of your realization that you are indeed a sub-par school.

Funny that although Duke won the contest for "douchiest law school," I haven't found anyone standing up to them here. I didn't have the pleasure of getting dinged by them since I got in ED elsewhere, but I'm aware it was going to happen. Let's get some Duke bashing on here, please!

Vanderbilt 3/16

Because seriously, who wants go to law school five minutes away from Taylor Swift's house, on a gorgeous campus, in the middle of an awesome city, with family close by, where two of your best friends are moving this fall and offered to split an apartment with you, and places reputably in a field you want to enter . . . (starts whimpering)

DINGED by UNLV

Boyd School of Law: Because nothing says "learning environment," like flyers for hookers.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear NUMB3RFIFTY,

On behalf of the admissions committee, I would like to thank you once again for applying for admission to the Juris Doctor program of the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I write to inform you that we are unable to offer you admission to the Fall 2010 entering class.

Gaining admission to law school, as you know, is not an easy task. Law schools throughout the country routinely receive a number of applications far exceeding the number of seats available in their entering class. Our law school is certainly no exception. This year, more than 1800 individuals applied for the 150 seats available in our upcoming entering class. Needless to say, this leaves our admissions committee, like the admissions committees at other law schools, in the regrettable position of having to turn away a quite large number of applicants having respectable and interesting credentials and qualifications.

We appreciate your interest in the Boyd School of Law and wish you much success in your future endeavors.

Very truly yours,

Nathan Neely
Director of Admissions and Financial Aid
