1. Eat half a box of Entenmann's Devils Food Donuts. Vomiting does not make the pain any easier.

2. Call up the school and beg them to take you. (Which I thought about doing :D )

3. Pin up the alternate list letter on your bedroom door and strategically throw darts at it until is shrivels up dead on your floor.


I feel like I could go out and drink away my sorrows, except I have nine page paper on Spanish Baroque art due tomorrow, and I haven't even started writing it yet. :(

Yes. And its not nearly as hard as it sounds, because its three separate questions that need to be answered.


My stomach really hurts. I feel like I just gave myself diabetes from all the donuts. :(

Actually the decisions are made by throwing all the applications in the air at the same time. The ones that land on the table get acceptance letters.

should i also not go camp outside the dean of admissions' house with a big sign saying "please reconsider! i love you" on one half of a folded sign and "r school" on the other half? just to get the dean's attention first.......

or, when you win the nobel prize, should you not point out how much XXX school sucks because they didn't let you in when they had the chance? anyone ever imagine the nyha-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyaaaah they would give to a school for not letting them in? like, you become surgeon general or something, and point out very publicly how your first choice school didn't let you in? (and no, this isn't directed at USC for those who follow my posts;) )

That sounds good. You...You...You'll regret not taking me!!!!! I swear one day you will when I'm famous! So take your alternate list letter and shove it!

I feel better now. Plus I've digested my donuts and I didn't get diabetes after all. :D

Oh no you don't. I have a whole other half a box of donuts, and I'm sure those supplies will come in handy when I get waitlisted or rejected from the next school.

I feel fat today. I wonder why? ;)

This is a great thread because I went through a similar day of moping around in mourning. The day that I found out, I was a horribly depressed mess.......all i did was lay on my couch in a pool of patheticness and eat junk food and drink beer. I don't feel as sh!tty now, but it still sucks to think about. Good luck all

I think I'm reaching the limit of available alcohol-concumption credit caused by rejections or waitlisting. Beyond a certain point here I'm gonna have to admit that I just like the damn booze, and there's no other excuse except the liking of it.

I, however, have not purchased or consumed a donut since around the time of the first Bush presidency.

I feel like a poll is starting here.........Which is worse for you, overcunsumption of beer, or of donuts? Or is there a third, even more insidious but oh so good food group out there?

I believe they are bite sized ice cream coated in chocalate snacks. If you watched married with children, that's what Peggy is always eating.

Okay, we all know that alcohol kills brain cells, but donuts make you fat. So the question is, would you rather be fat or stupid?

Such a tough decision. :laugh:

i believe that they are just chocolates. the bite-size ice cream things are named bon bons on the box, but on tv shows bon bons are usually just chocolates.

So are you going to believe the box or tv? I say the box is right and that bon bons are bite-size ice cream things.

Don't make me start an "OFFICIAL bon bons are bite-size ice cream things" thread

Whoa, TheRussian is serious about this one! Ok, we all now agree with you, bon bons are bite size, chocolate, and depending on brand naming, may contain ice cream.

This does not answer my original question-Beer, or donuts? Homer Simpson would have a hard time with this.......

The way you are talking it would seem that one has to make a choice between the two when in actuallity beer and donuts go together like horse and carriage.

My post-waitlist letter food of choice : Ben and Jerry's Phish Food Ice Cream - it's not for nothin' that my avatar of choice is a pig. Chocolate treats depression. Beer treats horniness - mostly by agrivating the condition. Kind of like homeopathic medicine for red necks.

:clap: I totally applaud you on your choice of ice cream.....phish food is the BOMB diggety.....and yes, beer is quite the counter-intuitive remedy of horniness. Scientists have long known its role in the initiation the widely-acclaimed drunken hook-up mechanism :thumbup:
