On this topic, I just want to say that I made a pretty self-entitled comment earlier on and I really regret that. I was already feeling edgy before I logged onto the forum because of sleep deprivation and some unrelated stuff that I was on my mind and I took out my frustration in my post. It was inappropriate and very far from the sort of thing that I would usually say. I've just been feeling really bad about it, so I wanted to put that out there and apologize.
Curiouscat, we love you. No need to apologize.
Sometimes we say things and they are interpreted by others in an ignorant light... Ala my comment about HLS admissions hiring two people knowing well that they wont be able to fulfill responsibilities for an entire admissions cycle as being a careless decision. By including the fact for which they knew the two people could not fulfill the task made my remark misogynist?...No, it makes the ignorant reader guilty of presumptuous and most likely careless analysis.
I wouldn't say that you're a misogynist, but I think the "whiny" and "entitled" adjectives are spot on.
You said that everyone who had a JS1 and who hasn't heard back from them "ought" to have a shot with KB... seriously? You made it explicit that you think that they are having trouble getting things done, and made it all but explicit that you think this is partially or entirely the result of HLS knowingly hiring and then suffering through the difficulties of leaving the admissions process in the hands of two "prego ladies." Each year many
people get first round calls and then hear nothing --> hold/reject, and to this outsider this seems like a far likelier reality for you than KB/JS not being able to pick up the phone to tell you you're in because she is incapacitated with morning sickness.
You yourself said that you can't discriminate against pregnant ladies, and then in a later post you talk about HLS "knowing" that these two either together or severally could not handle their full responsibilities, yet for all we know they are meeting or exceeding whatever mysterious strategy HLS admissions articulated at the beginning of the cycle.
Eh, screw it. You're projecting so much that I think it's safe to agree with the misogynist label.
