i dunno what to think of the auto-pooled category. (of which I know im in)
on the one hand, it could be considered bad, because they are only pooling you because they "had" to.
on the other hand, it could be considered good, because you are, on paper, and academically, the best of the rejects. cause im guessing everyone in the pool had a bad/not great interview (a good interview would normally lead to an offer i pressume).
I dunno what to think of it all.
