They are requesting that I be considerate of other applicants and give them a quick response. Sounds like they really want me, so sounds like there will be a place opening up for someone else soon when I turn them down. Rudest acceptance letter possible. I want a refund for them making me wait so long. These guys are thoroughly unprofessional.
So I just want to say that the admissions office is in no way a reflection upon the rest of the school. It seems like a lot of people have had issues with them. I didn't really have any issues other than complete radio silence for pretty much the entirety of my cycle.
But since I've been here, the way they scheduled the ASW has really weirded me out. We didn't get a heads up that 30 people or whatever would be in our civ pro class, they really don't foster any interaction with 1Ls outside of the student government people, and they've put out food right when a lot of us get out of class and then slap our hands when we try to get some (they could so easily wait 5 minutes and not have to rub it in our face). There was an evening event the last asw but hardly any OLs showed up and it really wasn't the best environment to socialize anyways (did they even encourage 0L's to attend that bar tab?). The other asw there was no event, that I know of.
I hope the 0L's that visited got to meet a good number of people, my friends and I just thought it was weird we didn't meet any (or really even see any, outside of civ pro).
So yeah professors etc. are easily accessible and everyone that you'll need to deal with once you're here is great so I hope you don't let the admissions office deter you if you have already been admitted.
