"Dear Columbia, Since I applied, I have continued to work the same mind-numbingly tedious and brainless job. But I promise I haven't gotten that much stupider. I will go to Columbia even if you call me in September and classes have started. Sincerely, Me" didn't sound impressive. I guess it is what it is.
Ah, the working world. Certainly does make you jealous of all those scurrying undergrads who have new grades, society memberships, grad honors to add. Not like I think it really moves the needle much-- if you're top 10% you're going to get Phi Beta Kappa so it doesn't really convey any new information-- but it just feels like your update is doing more. I read in an HLS blog it's important to "stay active" on the WL, so I plan on doing that with Harvard. However, I don't really imagine I'll stay on Reserve here past the 1st wave, so you guys should have another spot open.
