Dude......ummmm.....I think you might wanna re write that PS. No trolling just straight honest advice. Jeez :shock:


Wtf lol. PM?




Yup. I wrote him to say I was fucking around before and no hard feelings I'm sure his cycle will be just fine. UVA RD is crazy like that, and THAT is what I got as a response.


Yeah, I think adcomms lean to the left lolol.

I don't know if that PM was concocted or real (if not, that is some amazing trolling sir... you got his voice down). Either way, William is getting owned, and this thread is hilarious. :lol:

The last I heard she dropped out to go back to volunteering but that's besides the point. The point is, she made it Sir William, and you Sir, can too.


I'm guessing she was a troll or a URM.


I remember her, not URM. She proved the boards wrong and showed how tremendous softs can truly overcome anything else in your application. However, she also go UVa RD and didn't get deferred to Cornell.... this could pose as a big problem for Prince William.

What? Why is it whenever someone puts in hard hours of volunteering and outperforms her numbers people assume she's a URM? Granted, you don't hear about this sort of stuff everyday but when it comes along it's extra special. I remember her saying something about instead of actually writing her PS about working with the hearing impaired she sent a video to the school of her telling the story in sign language. Apparently Harvard adcomms really liked her creativity and accepted her.

You're writing to a group of intelligent, educated, worldly adcomms about denying rights to a class of individuals? Wrong audience. You're not applying to work for Christine O'Donnell here.

Why? Because 9 times out of 10 when someone outperforms their numbers by that wide of a margin it is because they are a URM.

It's just heuristics.

The PM seemed serious. Can't say for sure, but it'd be a weird lie, considering everything else he posted in this thread.

Thanks for this post, because up until this point, I was having an extremely difficult time figuring out if this whole line of discussion was serious or not. :oops:

I think the situation may have been bereft of heuristics, actually. Her demonstration of antipelargy towards those she served made her quite leeftail in her admissions cycle.

What in the world are you talking about? I was referring to OP, and his statement about homosexuality.

No, I'm not lost at all, it's clear everyone ITT has something against deaf people and I think that's a shame. They didn't choose to be deaf you know, most of them were born that way or their hearing slowly degenerated from years of listening to loud music. It's still not their fault.

I don't know what this word means but your animosity towards someone who has put so much hard work into helping people watch TV who can't hear is telling. What is it that you have against someone who helps deaf people? Just because she got into Harvard?

I still am having a hard time believing this is real. Someone who can score a 174 can't piece together that academia has a general disinclination toward horribly offensive moral positions?

At any rate, sucky cycle problem sleuthed!
