and it was absolutely expected! got the letter in the mail today, dated march 29, in a cream colored envelope. i had to laugh a little to myself when i read it, but at least now i know. i'm still holding onto hope for some of my more realistic options.

i went to decision last week and on saturday i received a letter saying that my application has been placed on reserve. it's not a waitlist...the way they word it makes it sound like they are waiting to see who places a seat deposit before they make any more offers of admission. no one is ranked on the reserve list, and there is a little postcard you have to send back it you want to continue to be considered. i guess the good news is that i wasn't rejected, but i would absolutely love to go to cornell, so i'm sad that the wait will continue. it says if they decide further offers are appropriate, they'll let us know in mid to late may, and at that point they'll also decide who will be placed on the official wait list. hope this helped, good luck to all who are still waiting!

i have a toshiba and have had nothing but problems with it. it's only 6 months old. it overheats and shuts down frequently when i'm working and as a result, i've lost documents which cannot be recovered. this would be a big problem if you were in class taking notes. the mouse works when it feels like it. and a lot of times it refuses to recognize that it's plugged into the wall and runs off the battery instead. save yourself the time and trouble...don't buy a toshiba. the only good thing i can say is that at least they'll take it back and try to fix it, and if they can't they'll replace it.
