Ugh. Either way I'm just ready for this whole process to be OVER!!! It will be so great to be able to sit down and actually know my final list of options.


SERIOUSLY. I would like to know which schools I'll be choosing from already. Argh!

That bird just kicked my ass. I so don't get all this stuff - this is dubstep? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RVKLcaIAE8

I mean I'm all good with it, I dunno about the vocals, and I want moar bass, but... I can't get my head around this genre.


yeah, I'm not a big dubstep fan, more of this stuff - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0GhPSEyzos or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvAUHemPuMQ...(warning it takes 2 minutes to actually start; and also you might consider it boring :D )

Ugh. I feel like with all this lack of mail, you are about to get like 13 VCEs on Monday or something.

To the person a few pages back who asked whether maybe the GULC packages weren't the best way to be gauging whether our VCEs should have come yet - it definitely is a shifty way to judge, but probably not for the reason that GULC packages are going out in waves based on time of acceptance. I got accepted pretty early (well, late November) and so many people have gotten theirs that I think I should have gotten mine too, if not for mail shenanigans. But really, at best all it indicates is that mail in NYC is erratic - since I already did get a package from Penn postmarked 1/25.

Also, CT44, are are my hero for confirming the 1/26 wave!

Ahaha I wish :) I just want to know already, gahhh! At least tomorrow's not a mail day :/

& yeah, I got accepted to GULC in early November and no package. Was your Penn package the faculty thing, or a new one?

The faculty thing, sadly. Although that was interesting too. I didn't realize they would have so many faculty with philosophy backgrounds.

Holy crap, McCoy, that's fantastic! Congrats!

And dulc, obviously there is a problem with your mail/the storm. I get mail very rarely and I still never go more than two days without SOMETHING.

Same old story. No mail in BK- again. I am beginning to believe my hope is ridiculous.

:( I really don't think so. In at NYU, in at Chicago even given their weird Rubenstein-motivated behavior - why not CLS?

Nada in Florida again. But, NU portfolio and another piece of unrelated mail from New England just arrived today and both were postmarked on the 21st. :shock: This is even more odd since the GULC package shipped on the 24th arrived on the 26th...

Point being, mail delivery is all sorts of weird. I wouldn't be surprised if VCEs continue to trickle in over the next week.

I haven't got any of these things. If I get into CLS and it takes 3+ weeks and I get no email, I'm going to be mighty pissed.

Why can't they just use fucking email?
