Aggie, so sorry. Something good is going to come along soon though. Keep on keeping on.
Hah, thanks. Kind of hard when even a green "ADMIT" on LSP turns out to be a "hold" (Boston College).
I should've just stuck to academia, that's what I'm good at. =[
the holds and waitlists could easily turn into acceptances in the next few months--don't let them break your spirit!
How often do they really? I dunno, I have a hard time thinking that a school that couldn't accept me the first time around will suddenly change their minds. I guess if a fellow crappy-LSAT'er takes an acceptance somewhere else that it's possible, since they have to fill that spot with someone.
I mean I guess they're not outright dings, but man it sure is a mental trauma. This whole process is way worse than anything I did in the military, because it's so prolonged. Even on deployment, after a couple weeks it "normalizes" for you and just becomes day to day. This admissions thing (status checkers, email) is so horrific to me. Oh well. I don't want to have to sell my sports car for a snow plow anyway! ^.^
