172/3.53.

WHAT?! That's crazy, I'm sorry :(

It could be YP. And I say this because I really think they might assume you'd go somewhere else. I think I only avoided the WL because I tormented them day and night, so they figured I'd obviously have interest. I can't imagine any other reason they'd WL a 172. I know they say it's more than numbers, but a 172 is pretty awesome.

So it turns out they didn't count my second score. They are reevaluating now.

Possible, but I got the 172 on a February retake, so I don't think any of my apps went complete until that score came back (so like 3/1). I'm pretty sure I'm just in for a rough cycle. I have a job and I'll just reapply next September. Oh well!

This cycle just doesn't make sense.

I don't think the waitlist is ranked. See my above post for more info.

Does Fordham YP? I hope so... if not, my PS and LORs must really suck.

if you do then we know the world is on its head and the rest of us do not need to feel bad... nor should you, bc it's nuts. like your name.

also, I just left work for 3 hours to go to an appt with the understanding that I'd make up the time. I'm sitting here and my systems are NOT functioning correctly. I can't leave my work undone and I want to go home. It's frustrating... but when it starts working, if it does, I'm going to finish up real quick and leave early... it's a beautiful day

Hannah, I got a cute shirt at target! I may wear it on the 18th.

Yeah, I can imagine them reading your file.

"This candidate is great! In fact, he is downright wonderful, and has even expressed a sincere interest in Fordham above all his other choices. I think he would be perfect for our program. Waitlisted!!"

I don't have any pants yet to wear, as all my jeans are very holy (and may be worn anyway), so I would have preferred a dress but I didn't like theirs... and I'm cheap. and I was in target already.

Can I ask a dumb question?

Once on the waitlist, does it matter when you initially applied. If two people with similar numbers applied three months apart, is it taken into account.
