Yeah, those of us who haven't heard yet are probably somewhere in between a WL and a ding, depending on the mood of the AdComm at any particular moment.

I got in on the 13th so it's definitely later than that.

Beer and cookies are on the way for when they look at my file then.

beer & cookies probably won't taste good together, though. you might want to stick with a combination of milk & cookies, or beer & some type of fried bar appetizer.

If you're going to be sneaking in to the admissions office you might as well just make it beer and rohypnol and then just admit yourself.

Should probably go with wine and cheese. This is Hahvahd we're talking about, here.

You assume that the beer and cookies are for the same people, but in fact they are for people's differing tastes. Not everyone likes cookies and not everyone like beer, but everyone likes either beer or cookies :D .

but what if the people eating the cookies get thirsty? and the people drinking the beer will definitely get hungry if they drink enough. the wine/cheese suggestion above isn't bad either, but roofies might be detrimental to your candidacy in the end... :wink:

you could always go with the tried-and-true method of sending them a video including shots of yourself in a bikini (although this may only work for people with a 4.0/179 to start with)

you know, in that book " How To Get Into Law School" Susan Estrich (sp?) writes about how you must never, ever, ever send video of yourself or anything similar. It almost sounded like there may have been kind of a rash of that after legally blonde. Which is hilarious to think about.

best way to get a HLS adcomm to take you seriously = taking a video of yourself floating in daddy's pool in a sparkly pink bikini

Just Send Beer, Cookies, Milk, Pretzels, Wine, Cheese, and Some sort of soft drink, that should cover a pretty wide variety of tastes, those who are lactose intolerant, and non alcohol drinkers.

Would it be in bad taste if I just send cash so they can go out and purchase all this on their own?

Maybe a gift card to this place, it seems pretty classy, and right down the street

Thanks in advance from those of us hoping for WL over reject due to good mooded adcomms

dude, almost nothing P North says is correct. Don't worry about it.


If you can categorically point out just one thing that I have said (to date) that was even remotely incorrect, then I will concede. Just one.

Every time I post something, people are quick to call me a troll/flame without so much as to doing any due diligence of their own. Yet, only if I could count as to how many times people have come on here to say: "P North was right!"

I get my information from the horse's mouth: ie. by calling up the HLS admissions office. And I encourage others to do likewise. People here seem to rely way too much on hearsay, conjecture and the inane garbage that's posted on joke sites like LSN. Funny how people think LSN consensus is the ultimate authority, data/figures that's anything but credible or valid.

I just wish people here wouldn't mislead the non-trads like me who're still in the loop. I also hope genuine gunners still in the running wouldn't get dissuaded by the drivel they read on TLS.

LOL! Well-played, sir. :P


Well since you had almost all of what you wrote deleted, its pretty hard to quote anything, but I specifically remember you saying in the Yale thread about 2 weeks ago that Yale was done with waitlists and rejections and would primarily only be handing out Acceptances from here on out. Since then I think they handed out 1 acceptance on LSN and WL/rejected about 200 people.

Rejected. It stings, completely rejected out of HYS. Stupid drop in my GPA did me in :? :? :?

Sorry for the ding, mon frère. If it's any consolation, a.) at least your cycle is now a lot more simplified than many of us who dodged the ding only to find ourselves slowly digested to death in Sarlacc (i.e., the Waitlist), and b.) your comment about poking the bear made me laugh. With you, not at you, I promise. Not to mention, c.) your football team's been a lot better than mine the past 3 years so nothing to be bummed about!

Haha thanks, but the good thing about being in Sarlacc is you know that someone will make it out (Boba Fett). Good luck to all still waiting to hear and to those on the waitlist!

Sorry about the ding, Jeri. It was obviously a super close call for them, or you wouldn't have lasted this long. Chalk up another loss for HLS. :wink:

I had already sent them. Apparently beer and cookies is as bad of an idea as it sounds in retrospect, or bad enough to put them in the rejectin' mood.
