damnit!

edit: after fixing said typo, and contemplating, I have decided that the phrase was inadvertently correct. After all, if you get in... maybe I won't.

You, my friend whose shoes were frozen and wet this morning and who then lost a contact, and me, who was given a pile of work without the databases, did one wrong, and is now playing phone tag with UPS.


Dealing with UPS, USPS, or FedEx when anything is even remotely lost will be why I will have a heart attack before thirty.

Well, I guess one of the many reasons.

I don't find them so bad. a little tedious and annoying with all the information-gathering. and overly-polite (I don't need them to apologize profusely that they lost something... I really don't care that they did). Other than that, whatever.

That happens in that movie She's Just not That into You. I didn't like the movie but everyone else seemed to. I found it depressing.

Don't worry, the deposit is due on April 15th. Hopefully that will give you some time.

OH taxes are due April 15??? I was thinking they were due February 15th. The extra month is nice.
You filing online? Get the returns so much faster that way. (crosses fingers for a return... I always owe NYS. Maybe now that I'm paying federal loan interest they'll give me a break)

I just did my taxes, and I owe NYS as well -- what's the deal there? I never had to pay state taxes in my life before moving here.

I might skip Turbotax this year as I have to file the federal return (usually, free with online services) and in 2 states (which is where they get you).

I feel like I've done all I can to get myself off the Fordham waitlist. I sent in a LOCI that was addressed directly to Dean Brown, I met with one of the associate deans of admission, I took a self-guided tour of the school, etc. Aside from sending another LOCI in a month or so, is there anything else that can be done to get off the waitlist? During my meeting in the admissions office, I was about to use my other offers and acceptances as leverage, but I'm not sure if that would help. Now that I was accepted at Chicago, I feel like I could use that to my advantage (because if I'd be willing to turn down Chicago for a Fordham offer, I must really love Fordham). But at the same time, I'm afraid that if I even mention these acceptances to Fordham, they will feel like I'll just go elsewhere, which isn't necessarily the case.

I don't know - I think that if you put that in writing ("If accepted at Fordham Law, I would immediately withdraw all of my other acceptances and applications") it would be mighty powerful.
Hey - how did your meeting at Admissions go? Did you call them to set that up, or send them an email?

I wrote an LOCI and I said something to the effect that if offered admission to fordham, i would absolutely accept and withdraw any other apps. I suppose that's all you can really tell them, and just hope they will believe you. Kudos on Chicago, too.

Haha thanks. The meeting in admissions went well. I didn't call to schedule anything in advance. I went to the admissions office to get the info for a self-guided tour, and the receptionist asked if I had any questions. When I said that I had a few, she said she will get someone from the office to speak to me. It was about 20 minutes, mostly discussing Fordham's waitlist policies and how the process works. I would like to say something as strong as "If accepted, I'll withdraw all other apps", but that wouldn't be true for a sticker price offer anymore, so I won't go that far.
