Pray for mojo. Good luck to all those in the great state of panic. Why can't this be the 1950's so we could all drink and smoke at work?

I'm throwing myself into writing a ding bar post pre-emptively. At least then something good will come of all this.

+1. It would be so great to work in a Man Men office. Only, I'd need to be a dude for that to really work out for me.

Edit: Also, hugely major props on the simpsons reference.

Quoted for unintentional truthfulness.

As long as it's not a Two And a Half Men office. I would sooner jump out a fortieth story window.

I don't get the logic of the 2nd point..


you must not be a pessimist? :)

It seems to have been pretty common for acceptances to go out in mixed phone/email batches. At the end of the day I'm sure people's ears get tired of people screaming OH MY GOD REALLY OH MY GOD OH MY GOD at them. OSHA would step in and put an end to it if they called literally everyone.

Love the optimism. Though I wonder why there has been no action yet today. Waiting to release in a batch this evening before they close?

That's how they seemed to do it with Dean Tom acceptances back in November, and I'm assuming that's what they're doing now. I got the call when it was pitch black outside at my house. I was ready to grab a drink and sit down at a couch with a video game for a few hours.

It's still early in CA. They seem to prefer to wait until later in the afternoon.

Just got a voicemail from Dean Tom (from around 1:00 PM EST) HOLY CRAP I'M IN!!

3.3/177 non-URM splitter, this was my last application (sent in December on a whim with my standard 1.5 page PS as somewhat of a hail mary) and I'm in total disbelief right now.
