Guys earlier this evening I sent a girl a text asking if she wanted to go see the Great Gatsby with me and she hasn't responded yet. Should I send a LOCI?

Do you have any major updates? Salary increase, standards decrease, chiseled gym bod, more emotional availability?

Harvard's 2013 Facebook group # is down to 490 (after subtracting the 4 administrators).
I also see that several of the 490 have opted for YLS or SLS.

While I'm sure not everyone who's been accepted to or going to HLS has joined the FB group,
it's quite good to know that the group number isn't something crazy like 700 people (which would clearly shut out hopes for the WL).

Let's keep up the hope folks!

We've already come this far! I'm sure there was a very good reason why they didn't toss us out by now.

Remember to prep for your Skype interview. And when she asks, "why Gatsby?," you better have a good reason.

She already required two LORs from individuals who witnessed my prior relationships.

I'd also rate myself as an 8 and I think her median for past guys is a 7. Do you think this is YP?

She's afraid she'll have to pay for you else you won't go with her.

LOL @ this exchange. If TLS had a comedy show, I could easily see this as an installment.

TripTrip, given that you are such a worthy candidate for this date, she's probably just trying to work out what scholarship to offer you. (probably between half and full ride with your stats). But even so, a LOCI can't hurt ;)

Just date Barry - that way you get a free iPad on your first date, for you to keep!

Have you seen the way Barry dresses? Desperate.

(This could be the best page so far TripTrip. Way to start it off strong.)

I interviewed with KB just now and she asked me to which school I deposited. Has any of you asked the same question?

Yes I think it's a standard question. JS asked me as well.

Yes. JS asked me this as well. It didn't surprise me and I didn't feel weird about answering. They can't expect you to give up all your other offers to ride out their wait list. I did tell her that Harvard was the only wait list I had decided to remain on, so my decision was down to just Northwestern and Harvard. I'm hoping this helps show I'm seriously considering Harvard. I doubt, however, that there are many people who aren't seriously considering Harvard, so I'm not sure this will make much of a difference at the end of the day.

To continue the creamy speculations, did she also imply when you can expect to hear back? :roll:

Stanford would be like the worst date ever. If she doesn't like you, she'll give you the D.

Ask her hand in marriage and hear back three years later.
