You too, Mrs. Trucker? Fingers crossed for Marquette and Georgetown for Robin, SanBun and I. All the other 12/01ers from Gtown as well!

How's Tupper Ware Mrs. Trucker?


MrsTrucker: He is doing good. A little miffed at me because I won't let him in the 2nd bedroom. I found he did some carpet digging in the closet there, so he is not allowed. Right now he is sitting at my feet, grooming himself :D Thank you for asking about him, Philaw!

Who are you expecting/hoping to hear from today?


Anytime, Mrs. Trucker, it's always good to hear from you. Hopefully Georgetown and probably Marquette. I've got around the same numbers as those who have gotten acceptances right now, plus I'm URM, which Marquette loves, as they have been recently called one of the "whitest" schools in th nation, and are a little miffed about it. It's really not their fault, but I'll take what they give me. It's win-win for both of us. :wink:

It depends on how the rest of my cycle goes, but they have a joint degree program in my major, and I really want to do the joint degree, wherever I end up. Plus, I have a sister in milwaukee who is about to have her second child, and I would love to be a part of my nephew's lives. I'm a hockey player as well, so the northern states such as Wisconsin appeal to me anyway. If georgetown accepts me,I would most likely end up there, but if Duke accepts me, I am 100% going there. Other than those two, I am definately leaning towards marquette.

You know, the pessimistic thread is so long because they note all the bad things they have/will happen to them. We could do the opposite.

I'm graduating from college!

In all actuality, the pessimism thread is full of people with all the luxuries in the world.

MrsTrucker: That would be good to be near family. It would lessen stress some, and give you a good anchor if you need one. We are looking to schools near Trucker's family, but some offers have come through like Illinois that is hard to pass up.

Your qualification is a bit pessimistic. I have hope for everyone in that thread! Whether the adcomms have the same hope for them in the T6 is out of our hands. :?

my qualification? because I was kicked out of there I came here?

So, I'm too optimistic for them and too pessimistic for you?

It sucks being a realist these days

Oh. I meant the "pretty much." That pretty much everyone is T6 material, not everyone. So I was being overly optimisitc for them.

I was a realist, but then NYU let in [a bunch of ]people with my numbers. Now I'm an optimist and a pessimist.

Also, soccer sucks. Welcome to America. Go to Europe if you want to kick a ball around with a bunch of effemenite men.


Why can't we love both?

I just dislike soccer hooligans' attitude towards soccer. For example, I'm a baseball fan, and I understand that not everyone loves baseball. Some if not many of these people may have even given baseball a chance, and/or are former players themselves. I have come to terms with the fact that they just don't like it.

Soccer fans have convinced themselves that soccer is the onlys sport in the world, and that anyone who doesn't LOOOOOVE soccer just hasn't given it a chance. They are incapable of comprehending that when I watch soccer, all I see is a ball going back and forth, then nothing because it put me to sleep, then the inevitable 1-0 score at the end.
