Make a post. It's really not douchey.
Keeping H8ers as friends on social media is the more questionable thing here.


i mean again I think jeeves and i are using the term "haters" rather flippantly. super flippantly in fact.

I just got second-hand anxiety about the amount of debt she'll be in for a useless degree.

Michigan's pic looks like a bunch of 15th century marble sculpting grads. Can't decide if I love or hate those hats.

I'm going to get a school tshirt and cut off the sleeves and the stomach area and climb to the top of a tall ass mountain and take a picture of me standing looking out at the view with my flabby gut hanging out. I'm then going to caption it with a Sex and the City quote.

The people need to know.

I made a Facebook post when I got into UVA. Most people I know make dumb ass Facebook posts about when they get "accepted" into study abroad. So you bet your ass I'm making one when I actually accomplish something worth posting about


So what was the reaction? Does it have layman's prestige? :mrgreen:


I got 300ish likes on the post so I think it worked lol. Granted, not as much as the hot sorority girl when she gets accepted into study abroad that requires a 3.0 and nothing more, but I'll take it


Don't feel too bad. Hot people can get a like if their cat accidentally posted. :lol:

Lmao it's so easy for hot girls to get likes. I posted that I got in to USC on my Instagram. My friends were super happy. A few of them texted me after. One even called me. The funny thing is people told other people about it. So friends I don't have on Instagram asked me about it when I bumped into them.

if you go to a big school with a strong alumni base then wearing your gear while travelling abroad is tcr i think. my buddy went to cal and rocked his cal hat throughout the entirety of a eurotrip and we met like 8 other people from cal in various places and partied with them and stuff.

One thing I won't do is post any acceptances before I decide where I want to go and get answers from ALL schools. You never know whose a hater and bad vibes are bad vibes. Call me superstitious but idk, I learned it's better to keep quiet until things come to an end and you have decided.

yep that happened to me when I wore a Cal shirt abroad. I didn't even go to Cal so had a weirdly delayed reaction whenever someone yelled "Go Bears!" at me.

Oh, I post for all the things on FB. They're "friends only" posts because nothing I post is public, but my family has a drinking game to do with each kid's (not that I am a child, but w/e) school acceptances/WLs/rejections. So, yeah. There are two other cousins applying to grad programs now so it's been a hell of a couple months.


exact same. they posted about all their acceptances (which I don't) so I'm just waiting for the final zinger. 8) :lol:

Flexing on the book/gram is an art form. You need to do it subtlety enough to make it seem like you aren't just bragging about how dope your life is, but overtly enough to make sure people understand that you're dope so you do dope shit

I need to be careful about liking stuff on FB too. I liked NYU's public interest facebook page and I got a text from a friend asking if I was going to NYU.

Really glad to hear I'm not the only one stressing about how to post about my decision on FB without sounding like I'm humblebragging, outright bragging, or just generally like a prick. Gotta find that purely informative tone.

Definitely will not be including "blessed" "humbled" or "exciting new chapter" anywhere in that status. Maybe... "excited to be moving to [location] to start at [law school] in the fall!" or something like that.
