I'm feeling crappy about an impending ding from Harvard Law.
eta: The worst part may be what happens when I try to talk about this IRL w/ folks who don't really get the mania that accompanies applying to law school. Usually goes something like:
Me: Ahh I think I'm getting dinged from Harvard.
Normal folk: Why are you sad? Didn't you get into XYZ schools?
Me: Yeah, but--
Normal folk: [judgy eyes]
They do kinda have a point, in that most of us will be getting into fabulous schools even if Harvard doesn't work out, and will be set for great careers in most cases.
