To the extent there's something behind the punditry, there's been a realignment by education - college grads now lean Dem, non-college grads GOP (see for instance the discussion here: https://centerforpolitics.org/crystalball/articles/the-transformation-of-the-american-electorate/)- but that does not map to working class 1-to-1 unless someone wants to argue that a car dealer earning $500K a year is working class and a nonprofit caseworker earning $35,000 is not.
@KetchupOnPasta: I appreciate the concern about partying but I'm not worried

Oops, looks like the closing bracket got merged with the link. Delete that and the em-dash to get it to work
20:42
JB spreading fake news
jb2028
20:44
(Some people would in fact make that case, because the nonprofit worker, or journalist, or Hill staffer, or insert your choice of educateed-but-underpaid job here, has cultural capital and/or probably lives in a wealthier *area* even if they personally are not wealthy. You be the judge of whether that fits your personal understanding of working-class)

JB I am kidding

20:45
Gotcha, just posting the rest of my wall of text
20:46
I really do not consume a news because I think it is all a little tainted. If I do, I normally synthesize a few different networks.
20:48
I don’t think working class for me is probably more an income amount more than occupation.

anyone know what I should expect if my decision just went rendered at Georgetown?
could be WL tomorrow could be A

Northwestern students just love ousting their administration, truly a wildcat tradition
jb2028
21:50
If this story is accurate, the Dean - Revamped the hiring process and pushed out HR people that didn't like the new way - Pushed out a person whose job was Twitter - Didn't make administrators help a student rent an apartment (?!?) - Does seem to have some unhelpful micromanagement tendencies, she should work on that
21:51
Fuck
21:51
That’s all
jb2028
21:52
Reducing HR/marketing headcounts would be an unvarnished pro at 90% of higher ed institutions, the rental thing really is not an administrator's job when you're a large adult human, the micromanagement stuff seems bad but the headline writes some checks the reporting can't cash
jb2028
21:53
If there's anything there that would give me pause before considering NU, it's the quotes from faculty (some do seem pretty upset and/or describe less-than-ideal management practices) but the framing of staffing changes in HR/marketing as some unthinkable wrong is nuts
Same with Northwesterns ousting of the football coach
You would think snitching didn’t align with the Chicago way
I will take any t14 and I will be happy
Should I send locis to every t14 saying that
jb2028
22:10
Any idea what might be hurting your app? With a 3.8mid and 178 I'd expect you to have some offers (or at least waitlists rather than denials at UChicago/Michigan)
jb2028
22:12
I wouldn't tell them you just want a T14. The schools want a reason you'll enroll there over their peer schools if you look competitive at both. If there is a school you would attend if admitted (other than Yale/Stanford, who assume that), that is worth putting in a LOCI.
22:33
they don't call me the waitlist collector for nothing
22:33
or at all
@jb2028: i have 2 years of retroactive withdrawls plus 3 year gap in UG after that due to a health condition. it's why I had to stop MMA
this is pretty much the app killer
