What the hell is going on ITT? The Harvard thread isn't nearly as terrifying as what's going down in here. Like not even close.

Harvard's V-day gift: offering interviews to a bunch of held kids.

Berk's V-day gift: just wreckin' hopes and dreams like it's cool.

Yes, but I've been drunk since yesterday, so it counts as the same day. Keep up. 8)

Berkley WLs for YP. They expect most of the wait list to withdraw.

Now I am going to spend the entire weekend trying to figure out if I should write a Why Berk or LOCI. Really regret not sending a 4 page PS. Berkeley was one of the schools I wanted pretty bad.

Tell them you'd take them over Kate Upton. They should be flattered.

Eich, no worries, you're going places this cycle!

99! I've missedyour tar you! Thanks man. I just got my ratified lease for a place in VA this morning so I'm not too bummed despite Berk being a really awesome school. My SLS rejection will certainly smart though.


:)

*'tar blushing* well, I've missed your .GIFted poasts. Congrats on the lease, Eich. Wait so you're thinking UVA or what?

Yep it looks that way. UVA with six figs was pretty much a dream scenario, so unless HLS or SLS decided they like me (lolno) then UVA it is! I decided to lock down an apartment already cause I'm leaving the US until June, and it seems like it's pretty decided. This has been such a looooong process I can't believe that actually GOING to the school is coming up soon. :lol: You should PM me and catch me up with you (so we don't entirely derail this thread).

Or it would make them think that he's stupid. It could be a bad move, strategically speaking.

Awww come on this isn't the place for Upton bashing. I'm just trying to figure out how to get Berkeley to love me.
