    So today has been an extremely weird day.

    Wake up...get in a car accident...wonderful...

    Call UCLA to see the status of my appeal. Get put on hold for 8 minutes, they tell me next week they'll figure it out. Great..

    Go home, UCLA called me and decided to grant me an INTERVIEW!!!!!! HELLZ YEA!!!!!!!

    Then, I try to go online...it seems the cable man came and snipped my internet connection b/c they are idiots and confused Friday, May31st disconnection day with Thursday May16th..which is truly beyond me... It's funny..cuz right after I got in the accident, less than 10 feet from my place, I saw the Internet Cable truck pull up....I should have run over and stopped the mofo from turning off my internet! see lounge for more bitching :)

    But...I still got decent news :) A UCLA interview! woohoo!!!!

    Wow, that's great.

    If you don't mind my asking, when did you file your appeal? When's your interview?

    I appealed back at the end of February...but they are just now looking at all of them I guess.

    My interview will be before the end of May. I have yet to call them back :)

    Congrats, man!
    so what did you do for an appeal?
    was there a formal process for that? I don't know anything about it.
    and did you send email or snail mail?

    I have UCSD questions but after so many interviews, you should be more than prepared. Just go in there and knock them dead!! just remember, be coo, be yourself, and "relax the cock" ewww :p <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> :p :D

    Scooby,

    Congrats my man! Glad to hear that an appeal worked out for you, and at UCLA no doubt! I don't know any UCLA questions, but I think you've gone on enough interviews to be prepared. I really hope it works out for you.

    Alright Dogg.

    Scoob,

    I have a few suggestions to make regarding your car accident. I read the thread posted in the Lounge and thought post my comments here instead.

    Speaking from a couple of experiences,
    1) I strongly urge you to contact your insurance underwriting dept and ask what happens to your premium if you've been involved in an accident 50% or more is of your fault. Typically, in this case, you collect one point which shouldn't affect your premium yet, but it jacks up once you get into another accident and get one more point. These points stay on your record for three years. So you gotta be simply careful with driving in the next three years.

    2) Don't even give that woman a chance to re-evaluate her car damage. Take the case to your insurance. This way, in case anything later happens to your car, you can go back to your insurance within a year from the accident and be covered. I'm sure she's not born thief or anything, but it seems like she's definitely trying to take advantage of the situation and your naivete. I rear-ended this woman with disability several yrs back and I went through my insurance to settle the case. Thank Goodness I did. This woman who apparently settled for cetain medical compensation early on with my insurance filed a lawsuit against me ONE DAY before the expiration of the claim. Her claim was she's got additional medical injuries unseen earlier on and we've never helped her. Whatever. my insurance won the case. It's unbelievable how many of the usually logical people go crazy and try to make $$ out of the situation.

    Thanks guys :)

    I just basically said why I want to stay in California in my appeal. I didn't really specify too much about UCLA itself...which is something I probably should have done. So I need to start doing some research on LA in the next few days :)

    Thanks for the advice about the car accident...I need to talk to her again but she is hard to get a hold of....oh well..
