However, reading through zdamico's posts in this thread and others, I think y'all are the ones being douche bags for ragging on him like that. It is completely unwarranted. I've been reading through his past posts AS WELL, and it is NOT clear that he has decided on Harvard.
So maybe y'all should just stfu if you're going to ignore the genuine concerns of others and just attack people because you're whining that you didn't get in everywhere you wanted.
TLS: where telling someone to enjoy their admission to Harvard Law School makes you a ragging douchebag.
I just don't like these kinds of conversations because it makes me feel less comfortable in the threads. The message I'm getting here is that if I want to lament the fact that I haven't gotten into Columbia/gotten a scholarship (which would definitely be a very tempting option for me), I have to look through all my previous posts and make sure I haven't loved any other schools too much on TLS.
So I'd like to suggest a solution: If you don't like somebody's post about where they got in or what money they received, ignore it and proceed to read other posts. TLS should be an environment where people can post their anxiety and frustrations, and receive help from their peers, without fear of starting arguments.
Again, we're confounding the difference between complaining/worrying/posting about not getting in or not getting in yet vs. expecting $. My suggestion would be to approach C with his HYS-whatever acceptances and go from there.
