    I offer you bribe money from my wallet to yours. If you do not plan on attending PCO this fall, or haven't decided, please hand over your seat so the unlucky blokes, like myself, that are on the waitlist have a chance. I will pay an exorbitant amount of money to the lucky one who forfeits his/her seat to myself. PM me, we'll talk about why you should not go to PCO.

    Godspeed,

    If it makes you feel any better I gave up my seat at PCO officially about 1 week ago, I'll be attending ICO instead.

    Unless we are talking about six figures then no deal.

    If it weren't the only school I applied to I would consider a cash transfer into my wallet but, alas, its the only one I want to go to. I was probably one of the last people accepted and have already sent in my matriculation form and deposit.

    What is this? Seems rather inappropriate to me. You want to go to PCO yet you're going to tell people why they shouldn't go to PCO. Interesting...

    You're not thinking fourth dimensionally! Seems like you are interested, so my offer still stands--my money can buy you alot of happiness.

    When I found out I was waitlisted, the admissions counselor told me that there were 5 on the waitlist. I called Thursday and they said that all files that were accepted at Thursdays committee meeting would also be going to the waitlist. If it makes you feel an worse, the waitlist is not based on first come first serve basis. They said it's more of a melting pot and when slots open up they review all the files together.

    GPA: 3.33
    Pre-reg: 3.56
    OATS: 300 AA/TS
    Good lor, experience, etc.
    I think it was more/less a timing issue, because the committee did not review my full file until 2 weeks ago, by that time everyone they decided to accept had to go on an alternate list

    You have great stats, except for maybe the OAT. You should definetly be attending opto school, if PCO does not work you could always try ICO/NECO.

    Laura told me that you have a weird sense of humor. I hope you didn't think I was serious with what I said about it being inappropriate because I clearly knew that you were just joking around. I hope you get accepted because your stats look good to me. I think that if you would've interviewed earlier you would've gotten accepted with those OAT scores. Best of luck and maybe I'll see you around at PCO.
