Was it just now increased?


It was increased in the last week, but I'd rather not say exactly when.

Was it last week, around 4:45PM CST? Because that's when most of us got ours. Don't worry, the adcomms do read this thread but seriously doubt you'll be outed by simply stating when you got it. It helps us know if you got it today, because that lets us know to maybe be expecting something.

Mine was 4:42PM CST Friday last week (check profile for stats, badass like that).

So what if adcomms out us? What are they gonna do?

What else do you have on the table?


I have $27k at Emory, $25k at Bama and basically a full ride at UF (my undergrad, where I would not mind at all staying) plus a lot from schools I'm not really considering. Want to either go to NYC/DC or stay in Southeast, so it would be annoying to go to WUSTL and then simply move back home to Florida if I'm not top 10-20% of the class if I could have just stayed somewhere like Emory or UF and probably had better job prospects in Florida/Georgia.

I find that a good general rule of life is not to say anything on the internet for which you would not want to be later credited.

Mine was about the same time, sorry for those waiting today.

It sounds like UF at full ride is not a terrible choice, nor Emory for the price. Emory I guess gives you some latitude to get out of the southwest. $25 at WUSTL seems competitive with those options though.

I don't think I've come across anything on these forums that would really be an issue for someone as (s)he were identified as the author.

Depends. Obviously anything that has to do with academics or employment has the possibility of being problematic. Likely? No. By far most of what we post is boring and meaningless to outsiders I imagine.

(Edit: what happens more often is peer social issues arising from everyone knowing who you are when grades and job topics come up. Not so much the authorities/employers. Just keep in mind that there are lots of lurkers and being that guy who brags about grades or a job has hurt people on here before, even at the chill sociable institution of WUSTL)

She actually thought I was you at first. She asked if I was the one who posted the pictures. I graciously pointed out that that wasn't me, but I was just the one who proposed. I asked again, and still got a no.

She then proceeded to call out scotti and a few others as well. It was pretty gr9.

lol, pretty hilarious. I wonder how she could have just picked you out of the crowd as a TLSer. Do we just have that look about us or something? Perhaps it's the smell, that TLS smell...

It's obvious when 8 people are already standing together during the first hour of the first event, when everyone else talks to 1 or 2 people awkwardly and then hides in the corner.

Consider this. There were about 10 of us planning on meeting up at April ASW from TLS. We talk about it here, as well as in other awesome secret places. Show up at the reception, we are all hanging out together while everyone else awkwardly walks around trying to meet people/get into our obv awesome group (which we were pretty closed off within ourselves, TBF). You're the adcomm, who would you suspect are the TLS people?

Plus, my lsn profile is linked here, which makes me fairly identifiable.

That, and the smell.
