    Default Which do you believe is better?

    Being wait listed?

    or

    out-right rejection.

    Is it better to have an ounce of hope to get something you REALLY want? Or is it better to get that crushing blow so now you know how to prepare for the future?

    Crushing blow.
    Then you can deal it back, safe in the knowledge that they are assholes.

    Wait list - I believe in that tiny little chance. :3 If I got a wait-list response, I'd know I failed and would go for something else anyway - but it's never worth giving up! I've actually heard of examples where people far down on a waiting list got in to a school or event or whatever, after all.

    rather wait because there MIGHT be a chance. I'de feel rejected and there would be no way for me to get it but at least there's a chance.

    Well... depends on the situation.
    I'd say a little of both.
    If it was about relationships... I don't think there's such thing as needing a crushing blow. There's always a chance for anything.

    Only tecnically.
    There's a chance that any wall you lean on, you'll pass straight through.
    However, the likelihood is such that it would take you till the heat death of the universe before that happened.

    There's ALWAYS the chance... doesn't mean it's gonna happen though, does it?
