Lol, what f'n idiots


This. I was definitely a "lure with fee waiver, reject with minimal consideration" applicant, but they still took 4 months to send me that crappy email.

*I tap Ohio State on shoulder*

"Hey OSU, what up? I noticed my app has been complete and under review since Jan 6th, but no updates since, interesting...."

SUCKER PUNCH!

(Ohio State falls)

*I roll Ohio State over and put my (Wolverine Brand) boot on Ohio State's neck. Ohio State starts to cry and I say, "you brought this upon yourself."

Then I hold Ohio State down, squat, and fart on it's face.

The cycle is far from over. However, I would seriously sucker punch Minnesota. Really, waitlisting me after two months when Vandy accepts me after a month and Illinois gives me a full scholarship on the same day. What the hell were you thinking? I wouldn't have gone to your icy school regardless. No one gives a crap about Minnesota outside of Minnesota either!

And $135 to take the freaking test! I'm with YOU! It's a racket!

UNC ... rejected last year with a 167/4.0, 5 years of WE, and a why I am interested in PI personal statement ... fortunately Duke took them down last night and making the tournament appears to be a long-shot at this point!

Definitely Michigan. They rejected me for philosophy grad school years ago, and now they reject me on the same day as Harvard, like they're so fucking cool. Yeah, they're really cool if you want to hang out with a bunch of sweaty football loving sycophants smelling their own icy farts while they TP the Cooley dorms.

I'll just go to UChicago (once I'm accepted that is) and take the job away from one of your lame ass applicants.

Michigan, your brochure has been used as reading material in my bathroom for months now. I've recently thought of a better use.

The first law schools to "officially" increase tuition to $50K / year. Will NU be the first?

I withdrew my app from UNC last year on the day they got knocked out of the ACC tournament just to rub salt in the wound.

Whoa now...

I would face punch Pepperdine, and continue punching until it calls me God...or at least Jesus.

Pepperdine has probably been donkey punched so many times that I wouldn't even go near it..... definitely not close enough to actually punch it. In fact, I wouldn't even punch it with your dong.... err, wait, I think I'm mixing my metaphors. Malibu has dirty girls. There, that's clear enough.

Oh, how could I forgot, I would also sucker punch I-UB. I applied very late last year cycle and didn't take the LSAT until Feb 2009 so I didn't really know where I would fall (I last took the test in June of 2004).

I called to set up an visit and the person who I spoke with told me that she had my file on her desk and asked if I wanted to attend the ASD instead (at this point, I hadn't been admitted). I told her "absolutely." She told me that she would send me an emailing confirming. Having received no email, I called a few days later. At this point, I was told that I could not attend as I had not been admitted. I was uninvited!

Well at least you are under review. I submitted my applications in early January and got my rejection e-mail in early February. I would punch Berkeley in the face because they really seemed to take their sweet time holistically reviewing my application... I know it all comes down to numbers but Berkeley is all about saying they look at the whole picture... doesn't look like it...

Also, any schools that require a "Dean's certification letter" to explain away minor disciplinary infractions (NYU, Columbia, Cornell, John Marshall Chicago.... some others).
