    If it cheapens it, they should give her a discount on the tuition.

    First all the legacies have to be given a chance.

    Yes, itdoes, child.
    it means she is not their first choice but if they aren’t their first choices’ first choice, they’ll settle.
    .
    It reminds me of the comic strip where the fellow asks the lady, “Will YOU marry me?” Indicating she was not the first asked but that the better choices had rejected him.

    Well, not exactly. I was turned down the first time I applied to U of Mich undergrad and they were brutally honest about why (couldn’t do it that way now). Told me they had their ‘quota’ of out of state minority religious types that term, but if I applied at midyear, I’d be accepted.
    -
    I did and I was. It’s not like marriage; I wasn’t going to stay with the school that wanted someone else first till ‘death did us part’. I was willing to be second-best in order to get the education they offered. It was better than the school in my home state….

    Maybe not exactly, but mighty, mighty close.
    The main thing is that you were happy and that — of course — makes me happy.
