lol! I don't think anyone thinks that... we are hardly the best. But I really do think that a couple of us will be getting in still (but most of us probably will not) I think that we are some sort of group that they did decide to give some chance in hell despite our numbers... but like I said I think they waited until very late in the cycle to decide how many of us they would admit. I don't think it will be very many of us though... No other explanation makes sense, because they could've (and have) rejected several people straight up with our numbers, long ago.
see, i think this train of thought is really problematic. its based on the assumption that someone's looked
at our application and then decided
to keep us in the running. I'm right there with anyone who applied despite auto-reject numbers in hopes that someone who do just that. but, honestly, i think of the admissions process as more of a horrific dodgeball game.
me and you (or any other kid with auto-reject numbers) are still in this really intense dodgeball game not because we have a shot at winning the game but because they simply haven't gotten to us yet.
once they do, i fully expect to be dinged in the face with a big fat red dodgeball. my arms writhing through the air as if i had any chance of catching that ball.
that said, there's always that kid who shouldn't still be in the game that ends up winning. THERE'S NO REASON THAT KID ISN'T YOU. yes you.
Also: yes, there are a bunch of URMs (myself included) in this last bunch. I have no theory as to why so i'm forced to assume that Georgetown is racist - saving all the minority rejects for last. for shame georgetown.... fooooor shameeeeeeee....
EDIT: Fixed my fobby grammar.
