All the cool kids know to throw paper first, cause all the novices start out with rock.

If I haven't had anything mailed to me by the end of next week, I'll call them. Once I don't get a full scholarship + awesome stipend, I'll withdraw.

All the expert kids throw rock twice in a row. The first one is an automatic draw and the second is a win.

Well, not if they think you're experienced, and thus wouldn't throw rock like a novice. Then you throw rock and it's either a tie or a win.

Well yeah, because I just told you I was going to throw rock. But if you knew I was a RPS expert, would you throw paper knowing that I probably wasn't going to throw rock?

Ahh got it. If I knew you were RPS expert, I'd probably throw rock, thinking you'd throw scissors because you think I'd throw paper.

Well, if it makes you feel better, crack and I might mistake you for a regular novice and accidentally throw paper.

"I actually had a great experience calling Cornell. My CRS fee waiver wasn't showing up a week after receiving their mailing and the lady I spoke with was extremely polite and handled it on the spot."

I actually had to speak wth one of the admissions Dean's through email a few time regarding myapp they were really nice. I just can't see myself in Ithaca. Duke is better rated, places better pretty much everywhere and has a lower COL. Everything about Duke is better, I mean come on its the Harvard of the south lol

I wasn't saying I had an issue with someone at Cornell, I was trying to say that I was unaware of what people up North souded like lol. People speak wierd everywhere, but in Duke it sounds a bit more like home.

Got ya Got ya, northern New York isn't really NY. The accent they have is closer to a mid west Cheese head accent. The real NY is about 10 square miles........
