Another set of 5 applications has been posted at sorting_elite. The last one was originally submitted at 16:25 on August 10. Yes, east coast time. That's only 3 hours before I posted mine, or so. *glee* I should be coming up in the next batch, I believe.

So much insane nervousness now. *tug* I am so afraid since like every application has gotten incredibly squibbed.

I understand your excitedness! It sounds like a good community, but reading their comments about applications is odd and disheartening. Some applications are short and too the point, but they squib for lack of depth. Others are "pushing it" so they squib. Then the whole, "You don't know the community, try again..." Um, you CAN"T get into the community (from what I can figure at this point) without having gone through this process... How can one know what one has no access too?

I am severely tempted to have Hillary read over my app (that I am slowly working on) before I submit it. :\ But, I'm afraid that may be cheating. :(

*hugshugs* I hope you get in and get the House you want!

It's not cheating. :) Send it to me, either through a post here where I can sneak-read at work, or to my home email: Hillary (dot) Heiselt (at) gmail (dot) com. I'd love to look over it!

Regarding the other stuff, though...well, yeah. :( I think the majority of the "don't know the community" type of comments, although correct me if I've missed some of them, are in regards to people not realizing that the people at the Houses at H_E aren't exactly like the people in the books--we're basically your average people who just identify with certain groups or certain traits more than others. :/ Still, I could be missing something.

Wootness! As soon as I finish I will email it. :)

Ok, yeah, I can see how ppl would be struck by that - we get that in the WoT world too. But, when people only have the books and movies to go on when working on the app... Maybe I'm being too harsh on those who are judging the apps and making that assertion. :\

:look I had my (prefect) Hufflepuff friend read over mine for me. :D

I... don't know what House I'm hoping for. I think I'm sort of expecting Hufflepuff. *blink*
