Last week on here, I predicted that we wouldn't hear back from H until Friday. And I bet my friend that I'd take him out to a (fancy) dinner if I was wrong, and vice versa.

Hedging has actually turned out to be a great strategy. I actually wouldn't mind not hearing back until Friday in order to get this free dinner. And I'd be just as happy hearing back before Friday.

Hearing everyone's high stats is so discouraging... I am below the 25th for average of LSATs and below 25th for GPA... what am I still doing here?

I hate to say that tommorrow should be the day, since I've done that repeatedly and HLS keeps holding back on us. So today, I'm just going to say I hope to see movement tommorrow.

+1 i'd prefer movement in this thread to be rooted in actual harvard movement, but i've learned to take what i can get.

let's start fighting about something random to rack up the posts again!

Very interesting. I think it depends on the girl. If you're looking for a challenge, Mr. Darcy is definitely better. However, if you're just looking to settle down with a really nice guy, Mr. Bingley is your man.

Yeah actually I like Mr. Bingley better because I am too lazy to deal with Mr. Darcy's bullshit, but I was mostly trying to get a good fight going. Apparently I failed...

Was Mr. Bingley a ginger in the book?

Let's at least try to keep this relevant.

I don't know, but since the movie, I imagine him as a red-head (or shall I say CRIMSON-head to keep things relevant for CastleRock).

Well I hope there will be. Obviously there hasn't been.

There are better places to have a discussion regarding the merits of literary characters related to a posters name.

But in the end I was just tormenting everyone anyways. Tls is never on topic anyways.

On the topic of things related to usernames or avatars, this thread and this situation already depresses me and your avatar CR is just the icing on that depression cake. That dog looks so miserable!

I appreciate the attempt though. :) It had the makings of another 3 page debate. but i'm satisfied with almost pushing it to 183

ps: it is never stated that he's red-headed in the novel. and i'm team bingley (obvi) because i love his dorkiness

I can't fathom what women like about Mr. Darcy. The guy is an unrepentant prick for at least 3/4 of the story but then in the closing scene, he whips out possibly the cheesiest line in history ("Mrs. Darcy" *smooch* "Mrs. Darcy" *smooch* give me a break PLEASE) and suddenly everything is OK and he's the Man of Every Girl's Dreams???

caveat: my only familiarity with Pride and Prejudice is from the movie, which I was dragooned into seeing by my gf and another female friend. I suppose its posible that his evolution into something other than an insufferable cad is better laid out in the book. But honestly, I just don't get it.

Yeah, you need to read the book. Although I liked the movie OK. The main point is that he's a great guy with one severe character flaw. The whole story is about how his interaction with her mends that flaw.

I'm sorry to report though, that he is officially out, so if you're female, all hope is gone.

Well it's about how they both have a flaw, although each of them really projects their own flaw onto the other in the beginning, before realizing they were mistaken, and in so doing, mending their actual character defects.--> thus "Pride and Prejudice."
Yes, the book makes Mr. Darcy's worth much more apparent than the movie.

Additionally, in the movie or the book, Mr. Darcy comes across as much more intelligent. That's worth at least 7 all by itself on a scale of 1-10 for attractiveness of men.
