No change, and nearing 3 o clock on a Friday, looks like we get nothing this week. Always could hold out for early next week, but I think we've been collectively WLed/rejected. :( *tear*

Hey guys, I've decided today that I am out ... I'll send my letter withdrawing from the PT program later this afternoon.

Someone has placed an offer to rent my house in Dallas for the next 18 months so I think that now is a good time to move away ...

I have some T14 wait lists that I am going to do everything that I can to get off of ... otherwise, things are pointing towards Baylor.

I'll keep close tabs on this thread though ... just in case skidmarks decides to make a re-apperance ... I'll be there for you eamonbriggs!

My cycle will strike the nadir, transitioning from unique/odd into full blown insanity with a waitlist/reject from SMU.

Chad, good luck with the Northwestern waitlist. I'm waiting until 4 to check my status, but hopefully I'll also still be in the running.

Hmm, maybe if we appeased the SMU gods with a sacrifice we could draw their attention. Goats are the standard, but I could settle for a pig or kitten (youpiiz, operasinger, watch out!).

Chadwick, you may have to be sacrificed for the greater good (i.e. us sitting in limbo zone). Nothing personal.

Also, I'm converting to Southern Methodisim (I think its an offbranch of Scientology, still researching this), but I get a 10% extra 'Holy' referral bonus for each convert that comes with me. Anyone interested?

For the record, the drinking began 2 hours ago, and I'm still in my office for another 30 minutes!

No change here, and good luck Chadwick!

Aristotle, myself, and the remaining prospective Methodtologists thank you.

well judging by my knowledge the only ones that are "sent via mail" are reject/waitlist :cry: :roll: :evil:

it seems that way at least because all the acceptances have been via telephone call
