I think for some people, they need to articulate their disappointment and validate their assumptions as a way to get closure and possibly move on if this option is unfortunately no longer viable due to high cutoff scores. Also by sharing their negative assumptions, they can get correction from others and counterbalance their views in case they misunderstood the trend or over estimated the negative trend score so as not to give up too early if they still have a chanceWhat a sad forum! I stumbled across this group by chance and I tuned-in to learn from experienced people about the trends; however, 90% of posts are pure negative predictions. While the eclecticism is justified, given the high scores, it doesn't mean that we only have to spread negative vibes. Me sitting @ 458, and in February it will be 466 could not be more comfortable. And yes, I have spent well over 35 k USD and a year of my life to get this score, but bitching about it openly will not change anything.
Please do not view this post in a negative way, I am just trying to inform you, good people, that crying and revolting will only make you feel miserable and will not change anything.
