I kinda figured the paper mache for all the various NYC parade floats was comprised of the rejected apps of Columbia applicants. I'm pretty sure you will be able to make out my LSAC # during the St. Pats Day parade this year...

I'm going to dream big -- maybe I'll see my # on TV this Thursday.

It's that deceptive Midwestern charm. When Michigan rejects you, they send a hand-written apology letter. When an NYC school rejects you, they just send you a single slip of paper that says: "Pssssh. Bitch, please."


Fixed it for you. They also have Ice-T hand-deliver the letter and then smack you. Applying to Columbia is like a slap-bet gone horribly wrong.

that's actually a great consolation prize. 'you didn't get into columbia, but here's your cocktail party story for the next ten years.'

I was going to send them some headshots so that they make sure all of the upholstery is a suitable palate for my coloring. I cannot spend three years sitting on a green couch that makes me look like I have jaundice.

wow, it's furnished too? in that case, white plates make the food look more attractive, and sheets less than 1000 thread count give me hives.

Got the acceptance package while I was working the front desk of my residence hall. So pumped. Never thought I would ever be in a top ten anything.

See? That's why I was saying it's too early to be distraught or paranoid in the ED thread! :D Seriously though, that's awesome. Congratulations!

Thanks everyone! Hope I'll be seeing some of you next fall, if not during the summer. Again, if anyone has questions about life in Ann Arbor, feel free to ask, as that's where I've been spending my summers.

unless you're a URM I don't think you'll be admitted. It's tough but I think that retaking is close to your only chance for admission.

If you're going to retake, you should really tell them. The problem as I see it would be this. It's possible that you won't be waitlisted but actually denied at this stage. If they don't think you're retaking, that means asking them to reconsider you once you have a new score. My guess is that it's harder to get back in the process if you've already been denied once as opposed to just being in limbo once a new score comes around.

Every day I look at the LSN graph I think how nicely my little green triangle would fit in right in that little spot where my numbers are.
