Its rude to use his name in vain.

Anyways, you got into NYU, so your profile says. If you have NYU numbers, then your only real worry is YP. Would you take UVA over NYU? or are you just looking for money. I was just playing around because people rely on LSN a little to much/boredom. You may be a little uptight for UVA anyways, have fun at NYU :)


Depends on whom you're speaking to. For at least 20% of the USA, it's like saying "Easter H. Bunny!"--nobody cares. Although, maybe we should all just assume each individual we talk to is an uptight christian.

/derail

I have firm confidence that UVA will get back to us before...May. :lol:


Hmmm well i hate to say it, but i am not the church going type. So uptight christian is not the right words, but yes christian indeed, as most sensible are :)


Ummm? Most sensible people are agnostic, as reason tells us that there is no reason to empower institutions that use scare tactics to pressure people into believing fairy tales.

10/26 here-- The people who had their status checkers change in November/December seemed to have either nothing happen or get a WL, Ding via e-mail. This may be different since we just got into January and they traditionally start releasing OOS decisions soon.


Thanks for that! Glad to have some more insight on the issue!

How about we all agree that no belief set has any monopoly on "sensible people." I personally am Christian, but I don't let any institution pressure me into believing anything. I have agnostic, atheist, jewish, muslim, and buddhist friends who are similarly freethinking.

So, lets keep the philosophical/theological debates out of this thread. The lounge seems to be a good place to get into a pointless argument that neither side will win.

Agreed. I try to be nice on TLS, but if I have to read one more comment in your little argument I'm going to vomit all over my keyboard. GTFO.

Most TLSers generally try to be nice, including me. But it seems a little counterproductive to proclaim your own efforts at amiability, then to complain and to tell others, "Get the fuck out." Don't really get why you'd think self-pity and profane imperatives would help any situation.

I don't care what you think about my apparent self-pity but this forum is for acceptances not religious discussion. So please people lets get back on track shall we? It seems a little counterproductive to keep this going.

So as an OOS who's been sitting, waiting, wishing since 10/6 and would really like some movement, please UVA, show some love so I can finally stop checking this thread.

Can't we all just get along? Please? This is messing with my ability to obsess over status checker updates. I get all excited about a new post--OMG MAYBE THEY'RE ADMITTING OOS RD'ERS!!!!!!!!!!--and then it's the continuation of a non-related argument. Sigh.

Still sitting complete at 12/6, FWIW.

Wow, is UVA gunning for a 171 median this year? I thought above median on either metric for in state was a pretty sure thing.

I doubt it, they let in a lot of EDers with 170.

Sorry to hear that though, laststraw.

You win some, you lose some. Others still leave you hanging.

At least I have yet to receive my first ding. Waiting for Columbia or Penn to do that honor.

For what it is worth, the waitlist email says:

Based on the acceptances in your profile, I'd assume it was good!
