Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
I like curse freaks too
chag!!! hope you’re happily enjoying your summer before you kill it at UT
you’re real as fuck for that
i have been working like a dog you guys
The Smiths, Radiohead, TV girl etc
i have a full time job and two internships
I love the smiths. what? I said i love the smiths
omg yes!
I love that you know that reference
i get compared to summer all the time tbh
comes with the territory of being a girl with big eyes and art hoe tastes
I'm done trying to get into law school. Just going to go play dead in some grass somewhere. Good luck all.
noo battle brother
don’t surrender
Tom is me in that I am also a hopeless romantic
me too it’s a very dangerous thing to be
also i fear i may never learn that you’re not necessarily compatible with someone just because you like the same things
got home and the ducky is still so cute i love life
@babybunny: yeah... I learned that after my last heartbreak which culminated in my lung randomly collapsing
Plant my feet and bitterly breathe up the time that's passing
anyone have advice on submitting an additional rec letter after WL even if the admissions officer said it's not necessary? rec letter is from someone affiliated with the school..
I would still do it
not someone claiming they got accepted from the SMU WL
One of my waitlist allowed me to submit a fifth letter of rec after submitting 4 in my initial applicstion
I just hope SMU gives me a chance once my test results post :’)
If it’s another prof, I would ask the law school if it’s okay if the new recommender submitted another letter directly to admissions team, if they say yes definitely go for it
I only have one LOCI for them left and I’m waiting to use it when my last results release, otherwise I would
valley SMU would be so lucky to have you you would be such an asset
Awww thank you manifest :’)
