I won it thrice in Elementary School. Please stop it with you miserable babbling for it will not allay your hopeless situation.

Kietloc, picking fights with WL kids isn't funny or cute or even interesting. It's sad.
Admissions, after a certain point, is a total crap shoot. Which is why you don't see me making fun of people who didn't get into Princeton.
Do us a favor and take your inferiority complex elsewhere.

lol! he was joking!
"I won it thrice in Elementary School."
though, he has a point: most of you guys need to take a golden shower, if not from kietloc, someone else.

kietloc, you have a dumb screen name. you shouldn't have been accepted to cornell

alright - i realise its a joke, but you have made a number of really careless grammatical errors. next time you feel like doing the whole "i'm better than you" thing, spell check or reread or SOMETHING...honestly!

What I don't understand is how someone could get wled at cornell but accepted at brown and johns hopkins.

i don't get how college admissions work...my friend who has a 97 gpa, 1520 sat, and tons of extracurriculars and awards, got waitlisted from cornell. also, her essays were awesome and her interview went really well..she did nothing wrong.
|By Humbleservant (Humbleservant) on Saturday, April 10, 2004 - 11:00 pm: Edit|
Ivies are a reach for everyone...still, getting waitlisted means you may have a chance. I got flat out rejected...1580 SAT, national programming competition first place....it really sucked

Depends on what departments/majors you apply to and the big out-of-state and in-state issue if you didn't apply to a endowed college

To all my loyal fans, the great kietloc is back and with another famous quote that will live through the ages and enlighten all of man kind.
" The best alternative to war is peace and the worst alternative to peace is war."
Fear not, in just a few months I will be coming up with famous quotes in the name of Cornell.

Have any of you guys tried to pursue the waitlist?
If so, what have you done?
|By Diceypit (Diceypit) on Sunday, April 11, 2004 - 02:46 pm: Edit|
you got rejected by Cornell?
|By Cuspidor (Cuspidor) on Sunday, April 11, 2004 - 07:22 pm: Edit|
I think a lot depends on what department you are applying to and whether you'd fit with their approach. They want people who has gone through a deep process of selection. Among top schools, there are different approaches to everything. Make sure you know them. Use that when you make a decission. Look at the sylabus, quote them in your statements for the app. Go there. Talk to people. Ask questions. Make contact with someone and develop a "relation". No matter how "professional", everybody responds to personal contact. Its not official, but if they like you as a person, you're chances increase.
Also, youve got to be INTERESTING. There are thousands of people with 4.0GPA and 1600... why the hell have one more? Uniqueness is crucial. Plus, taking all the difficult courses and having pages of Extra Curriculars just show you are desperate about Ivy Leagues. Nobody wants that. You're much better off being yourself and REALLY committing to few activities. That way they see that you've take the time to think about what you really like and want for yourself. It shows you're determined. It shows you're promising.
Finally, what are you gonna give to the university? Are you just gonna study really hard and get straight As like you did in high school? No!!!!! You have to prove how you're gonna use the school to fulfill your goals (you must state them) and that you will stimulate your peers, begin fruitful class discussions and make the most of the faculty through your intellectual curiosity.
|By Kietloc (Kietloc) on Sunday, April 11, 2004 - 08:25 pm: Edit|
Do not fret humbleservant because you did not get accepted. Your 1580 on the SAT must serve some purpose. Maybe it just wasn't meant to be, maybe you weren't meant to be an ivy leaguer.
" Stop frowning upon what you cannot achieve and start basking upon the glory of what you have already accomplished. "
( Another great quote, feel free to use it, i
still have plenty more )

So all of us waitlisted applicants have no hope of being accepted?
|By Kietloc (Kietloc) on Sunday, April 11, 2004 - 10:49 pm: Edit|
No need to be so pessimistic techieguy. " If life gives you lemons, make lemonade with it. If you don't like lemonade then throw the lemon back or sell it for money.( like how I sell oranges on the freeway)"
However, if you are too optimistic you would just end up in great disappointment.
The key is finding a balance in between, like the Yin-Yang.
