If all but one of the applicants die, would Harvard accept me?

<p>Just wondering how many I have on my hit list.</p>

<p>no, because the one would be in jail as the prime suspect.</p>

<p>I was just watching a program on Discovery about the mob in the 80s. Your best bet is to hire a bunch of hit men, swear them all to secrecy, have them do your bidding, and pretend to be a harmless schizophrenic to avoid questioning.</p>

<p>They'd take a qualified schizo for sure. Good luck with that.</p>

<p>well then there'd be you... and there'd be you... so you'd either be arrested on suspicion... or you'd be dead. and if you're not dead it'd be because you're the killer.</p>

<p>now, if all the good applicants die and a few 3.0 gpa students live, I'll be safe among a pool of people.</p>

<p>Hah I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks about that. It's like for every competition i go to I'd be like.. let's hope that something unfortunate happens and we win. I know its mean but it's not like.. I'm wishing it to be a reality.. it'd just be nice for me XD</p>

<p>lol harvard accepts 3.0's all the time</p>

<p>Well, the best you can do would be to kill all but 200 or so 3.0 GPA , 2000 SAT kids. Plus, make sure that the only way in which they're well rounded is in their physique.</p>

<p>No, they would recruit the hit men and still reject you.</p>

<p>I appreciate the facetious nature of this thread. However, PLEASE be aware that once you're in college, if you were to send a similar jesting e-mail there would be an APB put out for you, the university's security office would call for support from the local municipality, then come in armed to arrest you, handcuff you, and transport you for questioning. Those who observed the arrest would be talking about it, and there would be enough buzz that the university's communications office would need to put out a press release and blanket e-mails that a student was taken into custody after communicating a mass death threat. The media would be all over you, and the public would be calling for a dramatic response by the authorities. You would probably be able to convince the police that it was all just an ill-advised joke, but by then, your presence on campus would be so disruptive to other students and their parents that it would be unlikely that you'd be able to return. Last year at this time it might not have been taken seriously, but colleges are now living in a new world.</p>

<p>the point to be in a good college is the fact that there is smart person around you... not because of its prestige or anything...
so if u get in but as the only student here then what's the point?</p>

<p>lol. This thread is amusing</p>

<p>well let's see if it can still keep kickin.
I'm sure people get tired of stiff-ass talks about college once in a while
excuse my language but it's spring break. I'm freaking loopy.</p>
