The Ultra Special Hell Continues

Today is Cinco de Mayo. I could not care less. 

Osama Bin Laden got put down for his eternal dirt nap a couple of days ago. So what?

My law school application still being in limbo...that's about all I can think about right now. 

Since I am neither a child molester or someone who speaks in the theater, I had to come up with another level of Hell for those who law school applications remain in limbo. Since today is 6 weeks to the day from when my application was marked complete, we are now moving into Ultra Special Hell Overtime. 

I did call again this morning to see if there was any more news to be had regarding the whereabouts of their decision regarding my fate. I spoke to a different person this time who again told me that the secret squirrel website had the most up to date information available regarding the status of my application. He did advise that "application under review" means that my application remains checked out by the admissions committee. He also let me know that there will definitely be a decision issued by the end of next week as that will be the end of this admissions cycle. 

So, to recap:
  • No decision yet
  • Decision promised by the end of next week
  • Ultra Special Hell
More updates as events warrant. 


  1. I feel for you, man. I've been waiting for you to post that you have good news. I hope that is your very next post and that it is very soon.

  2. North, thanks. You and me both.

  3. What North said. I hope the waiting is over soon!

  4. Keads, at least I have company in the Ultra Special Hell. It'd be a shame to be there all by myself.

  5. Did you accidentally pray for patience?

    God has a way of putting things in our lives to teach us lessons.

    The good news is you haven't been rejected.
    I would imagine the obviously unacceptable applications are easily identified and notified quickly. In a way (goodness don't you hate cliches), no news is good news.

  6. Bob, there's no accidentally about it. I've been praying for patience pretty consistently for the last 5 years since The Queen came down with her health issues, and she says that I was already one of the most patient people she's ever known.

    As to your other comment, you and I are going to have to put that cliche on a piece of paper, take it to the range and shoot it until it's dead, dead, dead!


I am not easily offended. Please feel free to express your opinions: good, bad or indifferent. Basically, the "Golden Rule" applies. You get what you give. Treat others like trash here, and your comments will be trashed accordingly. Rudeness and vulgarity will not be tolerated.
