I think some of us could very obviously be matched with our apps..
I've thought about that, Goosey.
I'm very obviously matched, I think... but you know, looking back over my comments I don't see anything
to be embarrassed about. I have tried to be a real cheerleader for this thread, I believe in us and in this school... Perhaps it's better to say nothing, but I have chosen to be a presence and have tried to do so in an honorable fashion!
I have a definitive answer to that, because I was personally matched by Dean Brown. He claimed he did the matching after I was accepted, though. I specifically asked if he took the time to match people still being considered, and he said they were too swamped to do that, and basically that I was the exception, because I had made myself so obvious. It didn't hurt me, and DB seemed amused, if anything, by my involvement on TLS. I would avoid being a jerk on here, or bad mouthing the school, but no one in this thread would do that anyway.
There are worse things than being identified. It's honestly more of a concern that your future classmates will know. Because I'm not at all anonymous, I can't, say, open up a dialogue about my GPA. So far, people have been really positive, though. I was really surprised and gratified that people remembered me, and in my first week of school, strangers came up and introduced themselves properly. It sometimes seems like half the evening division has been on TLS.
