Maybe for you, but there has to be hundreds of us still left. Talking to people at SLS this weekend, like half of them hadn't received decisions from Yale. There's like a zero percent chance we are all waitlist bound.

Everytime someone gets dinged it's a sip, everytime AZ says something negative it's two.


Bahahaha, hold up, I need to run down to BevMo


I'm down. as long as AZ is in. Can't have him ruining my night prematurely.

Might get drunk a lot faster if you drank on mentions of not being dinged.

I'm surrounded by a pile of Bibles for a religious studies paper. Combined with the constant e-mail refreshing, the other people at this table probably think I'm vigorously praying for something...

November club hollah. We have to be waitlist at this point? Right? Right?

Or my application is stuck behind a desk somewhere.

I wish this paper didn't have to be coherent...

(Edited because spelling is a beautiful thing. I'm going to go step away from the computer and make pancakes, so if I get rejected, I will have pancakes.)

THis - +1.

Edit: Ugh I don't understand code - edge of the night, not trying to steal your line, just trying to say it's awesome.

:-(, I've been super busy but have still followed this thread today.

I wish I could hug y'all. Just remember -- the fact that you were alive until the end probably meant that you had a strong application. I know that's no consolation, but you'll do wonderfully at whichever place is lucky (extremely lucky) to have you. I know you will.

No e-mails, but I do have pancakes, so the world is a bit better. And Yale, if you need that push to accept me, they're really good.

If I haven't heard anything by Thursday, the next draft of my thesis might involve that method...

Condolences to everyone who has been dinged :( and thank you edamame!
(and everyone else who has stuck around and kept us updated on the facebook group and what not)

Who are you and what have you done with our az? :lol:

I'm anticipating a long night. If 1am ding waves happened before, 10pm is far from out of the question imo.

Yeah, it must be a late night of waves... because she said "most," so I'll assume 51%, in which case the five or six dings we've heard so far were by no means 50% of the pending applications TLS had to start the day

@carbon... damn straight
