"acceptable behavior for adults"? who made you the positivity police? don't be one of those people who confuse inflated confidence with actual ability or lack of confidence with a lack of ability...some people just aren't bred for self delusion. btw, you are very clearly and very personally attacking people...plus you totally misunderstood their point. Yale is the most selective school and also the one that keeps people waiting the longest, it's the last bittersweet sediment at the bottom of your cup, some people are eager to finish it up so that they might refill with the heady excitement of knowing for sure where they will be going.
"begs the question" is not something I consider a huge deal, though.
