    To steal a line from Mr. Kanye West...

    No seriously, thank you University of Wisconsin adcom for waitlisting me on Christmas Eve. Any other Christmas Eve waitlists/rejections?

    Think on the bright side. At least you were not rejected on Christmas Eve:D.

    That's rough, dude.

    Are you sure you didn't piss off Santa? He could've put you on the "naughty" list.

    And would other schools *find out* if I sent them a letter informing them that they're a bunch of pricks?

    Actually I hear they make their decisions in November to waitlist you, then send it to you on Christmas just as an extra F**K YOU present

    *Edit* I need to lay off the wine...

    :thumbup:same here. A few good songs, no doubt, but overall he's one of the most overrated artists. Anyone see him on SNL the other night?? Yikes...

    As for the OP, that's horrible...I'd be pissed too. Maybe something good is waiting for you after the holidays though...don't lose hope!

    I think they send them out at Christmas time because that is when several people leave for vacation. I could be wrong though. When I walked by the office yesterday, it was pretty empty and not many people were around at all.

    To the OP. You can hate UW Madison as much as you can, but it won't do any good. Just give them the finger and move on. That is all you can do besides trying to figure out what your application MAY need work on.

    :eek: MUSIC COSTS MONEY?!?! :eek:

    and you're in luck livingapparatus, after his fiancé left him Kanye has been (moderately) humbled, now he's pioneered emo hip hop.

    I beg to differ. I like how he stepped away from his norm.

    emo hip hop is nothing to be pioneered into

    I think his mom dying is what really cooled him off, and I do think he has matured but graduation will most likely always stay my favorite album by him.

    He stepped out of his norm and into auto-tune, on every song on his whole cd. How creative.

    I hate the auto-tune.

    However... N.A.S.A. has a new track (AWESOME beat) called 'Gifted' featuring Kanye, Santogold, and Lykke Li. I think this should be the direction of his next album. Hard electo type beats + kanye = awesome.

    Another great reason to be Jewish... Hannukah rejections don't sting as bad. And Kanye is terrible... enough said.

    That stinks...at least you have some kind of closure. I've been complete at UWisc since 8/7 and I haven't heard a peep.

    i think artists who make semi good-good music WITH awesome personalities ARE awesome. those who make mainstream songs that get onto the billboard top 100 a lot, if their personalities are atrocious, they just come off as disgusting to me (aka kanye & mariah carey; he's such a drama queen and she's the drama queen of all drama queens. HELLO? who the heck needs a water bottle at freaking 30degrees fahrenheit, or whatever the exact temperature is. god these people make me so mad).

    I HATE YOU KANYE WEST. sorry. he has some good songs. but i just hate how he can be a drama queen (at all times) sometimes. GROW UP!

    anyhoo..

    to the OP, i'm really sorry to hear that. but i always think that something happens for a reason. so just know that there must have been a reason that you were waitlisted (not talking about your grades/ECs/stats)--perhaps if you were accepted, you might not fare there as well as you would at another school :)
