I've heard little side notes on how some people wished that they had seen this board before they sent in their applications and other people were thankful that they found this AFTER they sent in their applications. (Parents too)

Now, who really wished that they had (or hadn't) seen this before the application deadline? Do you feel it would have been useful? If you found this after sending in the application, how is this place of any use to you?

Just curious

Personally, I don't know. There are pros and cons to it :)

Pros

1. Good place for neurotic dumping.

2. So-so for information.

3. Good for ego-deflation. Good lord! Some of these stats are scary!

4. Some really funny people post here.

Cons

1. Lots of know-it-all smarta$$ kids.

2. Lots of "Internet tough guys" who post stuff they'd never say to your face.

Noodleman: oh yeah?!

By Noodleman (Noodleman) on Monday, June 07, 2004 - 08:22 pm: Edit

I can't think of a blessed retort for that except, "Yeah!!"

Curse you, thedad! (Do you see how i subtly mock you by refusing to capitalize your silly screen name? Top that, you impudent weasel!

Hah!

The know-it-all smartass kids are not nearly so bad as the smartasses who *think* they know it all.

Noodleman, I am *not* an impudent weasel. I'm an insegrevious gecko master.

I regret every moment I find myelf spending here because the sheer naivete and one-track-mindedness of the people here raise my blood pressure to unhealthy levels.

I have nothing else to do, and I'm stuck behind a desk for hours a day because of my summer job. Collegeconfidential gets a lot of my time, even though I'm already done with the whole admissions process. I sincerely hope that after September, I'm done here forever.

By Noodleman (Noodleman) on Tuesday, June 08, 2004 - 03:08 pm: Edit

And I am the infragnostible king of the mole people!

Noodleman: imitation is the sincerest form of imitation.

Flattery will get you everywhere if you have cabfare.
