Yep! Can’t wait to hear nothing till June 30th lmao. Clown show
Yeah that sucks, what a predicament. Youre special enough to deserve to have everything happen when you want it to, but not special enough to get an A. Maybe call admissions and cry about how special you are and see if that works?

lol get off here and get back to work in the admissions office. Ain’t no way you’re an actual applicant
lol the admissions office clearly didnt think there was anything interesting enough about you to respond to your actual application, yet you still think youre special enough that they would create an account to respond to you?
why dont you go out to a park, touch some real grass, and meet someone and try to hold a conversation about anything other than yapping about you being special. It'll be good for you
