Whoa. I tried staying off TLS today to get some work done and lower my cortisol levels (didn't work) and I come back to this. Wow, sorry to everyone who got rejected.
I saw some of the updates on LSN but it seemed like they were mostly long-shots. And then I wee this Edward dude with killer numbers who had an interview in December. FML. Still hanging in here with a JS1 and lowish GPA. Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us.Edward, please tell us that you're a convicted serial killer with bad grammar or something . Otherwise a lot of us in here are probably toast.
Haha, I'm not a serial killer (sorry?? lol). I can speculate as to why I got dinged, so here it goes:The good news for you guys:
While a bunch of people will be rejected simply because there are similar candidates who they liked a little bit more, I don't think that's the case. I believe there was something very specific that she didn't like about me. I'm just saying this based on the timing of my ding.
That means people with similar numbers or even lower numbers don't need to worry yet
Now as to what was wrong with my app. I really don't know.
The only thing I could think of is that the skype name that I used for the interview is very close to my name here, so I was easily identifiable. While I don't believe I posted anything here that could be worthy of rejection, who knows? Again, this is all pure speculation, and I doubt I'll ever know.
Good luck to all other TLSers. Hope none of you guys follow me
