Truth. I submitted in September and got a decision in late March. Having no status checker may have saved my sanity over that long stretch.

Honestly, I think that would reflect worse on the person outing.

I wouldn't apply to the school if I didn't think there was some chance I would go. Despite my love for WUSTL I will make a rational decision on where I attend. I think we all owe it to ourselves to exhaust every option on where we attend.

Tbh me posting on tls wont effect my chances and, given the nature of this cycle a late app at this point isn't nessacarily an auto ding. There's plenty of examples last year of someone applying early getting dinged. Then someone with similar numbers applying later in the cycle when they realize that apps were down and they needed to reach a median and that person got in with $.

With that being said. Fuck no status checker.

uh wut. You just found out what state Emory was located in.

and when you did find out what state the school was in you told this board you wouldn't apply to Emory.

I could care less what you do, but it seems like there's a lot of kids on the WL and I am sure there are a lot of kids on that list dying to go here. We don't know what kind of ceiling/quota the school has for acceptances in a given year in order to protect the YP, why risk taking an acceptance from a student who really wants it? Just seems like common courtesy.

If you're looking for a thrill just from applying when you're in a great school already, by your previous posts it seems like you're set on WUSTL, you need a new hobby lol. It would piss the hell out of me if I saw you post down the line saying "LOL OMG IN AT EMORY, I feel so alive" while I am waiting for a call from the school I really want to be at.

I am not going here just my .02 and please don't take this personally.

I can understand people being pissed off when you proclaim it to the entire board that you're applying for a "thrill" when I am sure there are kids that really, really want to go here and not being sure what school they will be at next year.

Adios

Fine, I'll just keep my apps to myself then. By the way, the "thrill" part, was a joke, from the vandy thread, obviously some people can't take a joke. It's my cycle I'll apply to where I want to, just like I expect everyone else too. I'm not gonna limit my prospectives, just like I don't expect any of you to. I said "I wouldn't apply to the school if I didn't think there was some chance I would go" and I meant it. You guys also need to realize that Emory JUST sent me a fee waiver this week, which prompted me to do some research on the school (and one of the first things I found was that it was in a different state than I assumed it was), and I liked what I researched, so I threw out an app because I had a fee waiver and I think I might be able to get a big scholarship from them, which I would then consider going there. You guys don't know my motives, and this is suppose to be a fun place to applicants to talk about their cycle. Stop assuming that 1 person on TLS applying is all of a sudden going to doom your app, or attack them for doing so.

IMO what I'm doing can not even compare to some of you that have threatened to out me or whatever. Or some of the PMs I've gotten. You gotta realize how fucked up and pissed off that makes me to see something like "He better just hope that a desperate WLer doesn't attempt to out him to the adcomms. Then it really will be a waste of money."....and...."It would be hilarious if you got auto WLed because some crazy ambitious, gunning 0L totally ratted you out." Then those same people have the audacity to tell me where to apply and where to withdraw.

Hey man completely understandable. I was in no way saying I was mad or going o out you. You're allowed to apply anywhere you want you earned it and deserve to have the best options availabe you owe that to yourself. I'm sire you were in no way malicious and was in good fun

I was just saying how it gave the impression that you were just applying for the hell of it. I'm WLd at my top choice and if I saw some of the stuff you were posting it would really upset me. A lot of people read these boards and everyone's on edge with the process. I'm just saying I'm in the shoes of many people that are waitlisted and we are anxious and really sucks not knowing where you'll be next year.

Good luck with the rest of the cycle.

Damn, that's not cool =/

This is disappointing to read, especially after having only positive interactions with you in other threads.

Post the PMs

YESPLZ. Also seriously LOL at you people ITT. He's not going to take an acceptance away from anyone if he doesn't attend. If you guys are desperately trying to get off the WL you'd be much better served retaking the June LSAT than spending your time getting butthurt about someone else's decision to apply.

In her defense she cleared things up via pms, and I dont think she would, but it's just more concerning that some rando out of the general lurking public could be thinking the same thing now.

+1.

People need to off this dude's nuts and stop taking it personally that he applied to somewhere he's not 100% set on going. Everyone has their own motives for applying to schools, and we don't know his, so he doesn't deserve to get shit on just because people are bitter that they're waitlisted. If you think you're being sanctimonious by not "playing the game" like the schools are doing to you, you're doing yourself a disservice by not giving yourself as many opportunities as possible. Tons of people are applying to schools just to use their scholarship to negotiate with a school they really want to go to. That's just good strategy. If me negotiating for potentially tens of thousands of dollars more in scholarship money comes at the expense of a waitlister having to wait a couple more weeks before being admitted, I'm sorry, but I'd do it, too.

ETA: Also, like woke said, Emory isn't worth sticker anyway, and if you get in off the WL you'll probably be paying close to sticker. So even if he was taking one of your spots (which he isn't), he'd probably be doing you a favor.
