So now we've got 1/24, 1/25, and 1/26??? Confusion all around! Thanks for letting us know annie. Hopefully 1/25 had love for both RD and ED admits.

There is so much hope right now that I just want to freeze time and live forever in a netherworld where I always might be admitted to Columbia Law.

I mean, that would get old. But yay for still hope.

Know classmates? My gunning strategy only lets me socialize with classmates 3.5 hours per week (cut back to 0 hours during finals, obvi).


I know this was tongue-in-cheek, but I'd still like to know how you (or anyone else) would define "gunner" (a personality type that I've heard references to repeatedly but never fully grasped) -- I mean, I study obsessively and for many hours on end, but I'd still help other students, be gracious about good/bad performance, not talk about schoolwork once I leave the library (even if it is at midnight), and, I don't know... be generally nice to people? Does that count? If not, what is the quintessential gunner like?

The bold is pretty gunnery.

If you get to law school and you can't identify the gunners in your classes, then it's you.

I feel like to be a gunner, you have to be obsessed with class ranking, not just studying. You have to be gunning for first, and everyone else has a target on their back.

This is what I figured; I would imagine (perhaps wrongly? that everyone here enjoys learning.

Assume you mean me, though I'm not sure why? They asked about neighborhoods, GP is a different neighborhood from Williamsburg, with a different zip code.

The gunner title is normally held for those who are douchy about it. People who want to succeed at any cost. Other people are the least of their concerns. The more carnage they lay behind them the better.

In general, douche bags.

This is the official gunner/douche bag test.

Probably on of the main characteristics, but definitely not an sufficient characteristic. If this was sufficient characteristic, everyone in a t6 school should probably be considered a gunner.

Nah, give it at least through Monday or Tuesday, especially since there appears to be a new, 1/26 batch that was sent out.

6 days is nothing. It took me 11 days, someone else 13, and Castlerock waited almost 3 weeks to receive his.

Why can't they e-mail?? This is all going to drive me CRAZY. We don't know if we're not in, or if there's new batches, or if there's crazy snow messing everything up.

Ha, weren't you the one who "preferred snail mail because you only have to worry once a day" when I said schools should just email? :P
