Eh, I wasn't intentionally misleading, though. I did say in my OP something to the effect of, "If I get into Yale..." People who didn't read the OP (or didn't read it carefully) just assumed I'd gotten in. Not really my fault.
This is a serious problem that TLS has, and what makes it one of the most frustrating forums I've ever used. People are too selfish and lazy to skim through even a few pages of the threads they want to post in, resulting in a constant stream of posts of people asking questions that could easily be answered by looking through the last few pages of a thread, which is really obnoxious. And everybody, myself included, is so worried about adcomms reading their posts that they don't say anything mean, even though mean responses are pretty warranted in these situations. You'd think if people are neurotic enough to be looking for this kind of information on the web that they would be less lazy and selfish about finding the answers on this board (and I don't even get why looking through previous posts is harder than posting a new question). At least this board isn't LSD though.
for the most part i agree, but i mean w/ a thread like this one...i only expect ppl to read the most recent 2 pages (and maybe the first page) lol
the longest thread on TLS that i read from beginning to end (most recent) was 32 pages, and i still feel like a loser doing it
