living separate and apart

Read a random definition: medium of exchange

A quick definition of living separate and apart:

Living separate and apart means that a husband and wife are living away from each other and at least one of them wants to end the marriage. This can be a reason for divorce in some states if they have been living apart for a certain amount of time. It is also called "separate and apart."

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Living separate and apart refers to a situation where a married couple is living away from each other, with at least one spouse intending to end the marriage.

This is one of the grounds for no-fault divorce in many states. If the couple has been living apart for a specified period, they can file for divorce without having to prove any wrongdoing on either side.

For example, if John and Jane have been living in different cities for the past year, with no intention of reconciling, they can file for divorce based on the grounds of living separate and apart.

Another example could be if a couple has been living in the same house but leading separate lives for a certain period, with no intention of reconciling. In such a case, they can also file for divorce based on the grounds of living separate and apart.

The concept of living separate and apart is important in divorce law as it allows couples to end their marriage without having to prove any fault or wrongdoing. It also provides a way for couples to move on with their lives if they are no longer compatible or happy together.

I don't really understand how they could overlook IIs though. Like, do you mean they made a mistake in overlooking them or that they deliberately set them temporarily aside for some reason?
the latter
additionally, idt they go by sent date, most of the A's seem to be mixed dates

@sufferchildrensmiths: Also, you're making me more hopeful (though I still want to keep my expectations low at this point). For we do have a fair amount in common besides the 1/22 II date. We both submitted on the same date, we have the same GPA, and we both have a grad degree.

Silly question: Is the standard procedure for withdrawing an acceptance/waitlist to simply email the admissions department/primary contact?
@FranticSpiffySwallow: You'll get into a top school
some reverse-splitter will counteract your GPA
if your school does not do out of 4.3, then you have nothing to worry about. :)

For a scholarship that has an additional essay do yall think the scholarship committee reads your full app to that school plus the extra essay or just the extra essay? Trying to figure out if things would be too repetitive
