*nervous*

every time i log on my status checker, my heart enters my throat. then I see "complete" and it slowly settles back into place, but I still have that fear of what happens when there is an actual decision there.

oh god this process is enough to give people an ulcer

Everytime I see your avatar (Dominic Purcell, right?) I think of this episode in season 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer in which Dominic plays a high school swim team member who becomes a weird amphibious mutant. Long before Prison Break, but a classic moment of a star's evolution. Just thought I'd share.

Ah, well, either way that's who I was referring to. I'm bad with celebrity names.

yeah, I used to think I would meet him, convince him to become muslim, and then marry him. But then I found out he was gay and my plan all went down the drain, because it may become significantly harder to convince a gay man to fall in love with me. sad, right.

Very sad. Nothing is impossible, though...but stalking is kinda not a good thing.

Damn. You'll get in. The line between accept and WL here seems to be absolutely razor thin.

thanx but do you think its possible that its because of my degree?


Why is everyone calling this a YP and not ruling out the non-traditional bachelor degree? Maybe they looked at the strength of your degree coursework/institution and didn't think a 4.0 was reflective. (I hope not for your case). Regardless, write a LOCI asap.

In by status checker! Very excited - now my fiancee and I have a south Florida, Gainesville and an NYC option.
171/3.75

Congrats to the admits. Good luck on the LOCI for the WL's. I'm rooting for you all!

Actually, I tend to agree with you here. The trend has been just arbitrary WL for every splitter, and a non-trad major GPA I guess could be construed as a low/no gpa.
