+1 ... thank you!
Honestly though, you could be a little more sensitive about this whole thing. Maybe join/start an accepted students thread? I stopped posting I the GW applicants thread when I was accepted. Or post in the GW thread that you'd rather go there. You can't help it if people resent you, but most people here are agonizing over one of their top choices, not posting about leverage.
I guess...but the thread is
titled Minnesota 2011, not Minnesota Applicants or whatever.
I wouldn't have reacted so strongly if this wasn't like the FOURTH TIME that he has talked shit to me because I don't want to live in the midwest...on like random threads that had nothing to do with him. ANYWAY i'll take this somewhere else. My bad for the derail
Edit: how was I tactless...? I was having a convo with PinkCow about leverage in the "MINNESOTA 2011" thread lulz. whatevs
I don't think anyone called you tactless.
However, if you'd stop hating on the midwest, then maybe I wouldn't "talk shit" to you... Which I don't think I do, I merely defend the midwest. If you don't like it, don't come. I dislike California and the east coast, so I didn't apply to any schools there and don't talk about either of those areas of the country. Minneapolis is an awesome city, and UMN is a great school... And I'd like to keep all biased degrading of the area out of a thread that's supposed to help people make smart decisions about what school is best for them.
As for UMN... Anyone know about movement from the waitlist and when it happens? I would hate to pay a deposit to one (or even two schools) and then get accepted off the waitlist.
