“Hey Guess What Guys!” by Snively '11

That's what!

I’ve got about an hour before I’m forced off these blogs temporarily so I thought I’d squeeze in one last entry before decisions came out.

When you get your decisions it could be that the last thing you’d ever want to do is sit still and go online (at least it was for me) but if that’s the kind of thing that tickles your fancy, then I have a nice website for you to visit.

http://whitehatdesign.com/chat/

This chatroom keeps cropping up every year around decisions times and can routinely be a neat place to chat with other applicants, express how happy you are that you got in, or vent about not getting in. Other outlets include:

Facebook
College Confidential
AIM
Blogs!

Good luck this afternoon guys! PLEASE keep everything civil. It can be hard, but we don’t want comments disabled (it happens). I’m rooting for you!

    do you know who wrote that chat? It seems not to work with opera; as soon as a window should “pop up” it get closed… No one ever tests pages for opera support, and its just too stressful now to configure another browser(firefox or konqueror) for the java plugin X_x

    @heng

    I don’t have Internet Explorer, don’t want it and if I had it, I would probably not use it. (small notice: not *every* computer in this world runs windows wink ) – Sorry, my intention is not to be rude, but I felt insulted by that comment.

    (44 minutes… )

  17. Roshini says:

    civil…….uhmmmmmm!!
    LOL…obviously we will!

  18. heng says:

    @Goens
    I have no meaning of insulting you Goens. just think maybe i could help something coz everyone is nervous now and so do i… but i am wrong. sorry if you felt you are insulted. sorry again…

  19. Nihar says:

    while(decisions!=release)
    {
    System.out.println(“OMG”);
    }

    This is sooo nerve wracking!!

  20. Goens says:

    @heng

    naw, it is I who has to apologize, I should not have made such “a big deal” out of it, but I guess I’m nervous and excited too!

  21. David says:

    Goens: Perhaps try IEs4Linux (Google it). I’ve had pretty good experiences with running it.

    If only the state of code on the web weren’t so screwy… grin

  22. Goens says:

    @David

    Sounds like a nice script, I guess I’ll try it next time that I have to do some web-development (I don’t really see any other use for IE wink )
    I have learned my lesson nevertheless (already had when it happened) just don’t indiscrimenately earase distro configuration files smile

  23. heng says:

    @Goens
    i do understand it coz it is exactly what i am feeling now too… Good luck to you Geons. hope we could meet at MIT

  25. Steffi says:

    Here we go, guys…
    Merde!

    (Sorry- I’m a dancer, and it’s just bad joo joo to say the “g-o-o-d-l-u-c-k” phrase. “Merde” is the French equivalent to “Break a leg”.)

    Hopefully I’ve distracted you from your paranoia for perhaps thirty seconds.

    *looks around*
    Breathe. No one’s looking.

  26. heng says:

    So how was the result?

  27. Goens says:

    Rejected… ! Damn… I guess I knew all along, it sucks being an “international”

  28. Hey Snively, one more Oregonian is comming to MIT!
    Doubt you will ever read this far down into the comments but I had to share my news with my fellow/ex-fellow Oregonian.

  29. Kamya says:

    @ Goens
