    When you least expect it...

    So I'm sitting at my desk, desperately, leafing through the 12 rejections, marveling at and pondering how much effort is placed in writing such a grim letter when alas, the telephone rings. It's the dean from the best medical school ever, and don't bother asking because I won't tell you since I'm making this up as I go along. Dig it? So anyhow, the dean says, "Sir Jack, we've heard all about you through 'the grapevine'". I say, "Grapevine? What Grapevine". The dean retorted,"the grapevine." "Ohhh,THE grapevine! How fascinating!" The venerable dean and I began laughing and speaking of womens wonderful ways for a while. The best was when he said, "Premed gunner? I don't even KNOW her!" Then he says to me, he says, "Jack, Jackass. Haha, get it?" I reply "Oh dean, you're such a joker, your puns captivate me!" The he clears his throat and whispers in a low, gutteral way, "son, you've won yourself a scholarship and an all-expense paid vacation to he British Isles. For a limited time only, no restrictions apply beyond 12/20/01, callers must be 18 or older, the proprietors of Carnival Cruise Lines, Inc. will not be held responsible for any lost articles, currencies, or scholarship funds thereafter".

    Thanks Dean X of College Y for Prizes Q-Z!

    Seriously folks, congrats but beware of how gloating can offend the unsuccessful applicant.

    I really do love you all,

    I was beginning to think I was the only one without an acceptance.

    That was....touching...Jack.
    Just to let you know, I haven't applied yet, but it's good to know that some people don't lose their sense of humor after all the torture and not getting in. I don't know what I'd do if I don't get in....perhaps leave the country and not come back till it's time for another round of applications.
    Anyway, y'all will be in my thoughts. I hope you achieve all that you want. :)
