there were a lot of socially awkward admitted people. But then again, I think itís all like that at all these events. (this is my first admit event Iíve attended)

It IS a sort of awkward situation.

um, it was, but there were some extremes.

Me: Hi! my name is XX, what's yours?
girl: XX.

silence silence silence

-_- Me: so where are you from
girl: I came from Brown

silence silence silence

Then I escaped my dinner table. I met 4 or 5 people like this. And yes, my sample can be very biased, I know.  :)

and i second the str8 outta ug comment. there were some people who were listing the schools they got into, when i didnt even ask. very weird.

The people I met - not too many, granted - included several who were several years out of school. Maybe we sought each other out.

Noone volunteered the schools they got into, but there was definitely a lot of awkward verbal dancing as people wanted to find out where other people were looking/ had gotten in/ been rejected from, etc., and to let other people know about their situations. But everyone I met at least waited until they were asked.

I just got to c'ville from philly. man it's so pretty and warm here. huge contrast to philly. asian american interactions I've had were very different from the CA schools. maybe it's the east coast thing.

people are collegial but they are also competitive and driven. I think UVa has more laid back atmosphere, at least from what I hear.

Yeah, I also agree that people that weren't on the host committee still seemed to be happy and liked talking about how much they liked Penn. I didn't get that feeling at Georgetown or Cornell. And during the dean's speech at dinner I could really detect the excitement he had about the school in his voice. There really is something in the water.

Another observation I had was that it was heavily skewed toward people like me who are coming straight from UG or only have a year separation. I didn't meet as many nontrads as I did at other schools. Also, it seemed like EVERYONE there was deferred by Harvard. Lots of conversations about what schools people were deciding between were punctuated by "...unless I get into Harvard."

AHHH, this waiting is killing me.  When is the next admitted students day?  I'm hoping they'll admit another wave of students in advance of that. 

I think they only have 1 admitted student's day.  April 8 or 9.

every friday, they hold admitted student's luncheon.

gtown binder.. but it was sent from hongkong. I am confused.  ??? I guess it came through hongkong to Korea.

there's a group picture of gtown students. and none of the females had toned bodies. I hope this was not due to the law school experience.

going to the gym now.

why did you go to a canadian school apples?
I'm not quite sure yet, and I really never know how people react to an American McGill grad, since I'm thinking alot of people outside of the northeast have never really heard of it (or at least thats the impression I get. When I tell people on the street I go to McGill, 60% have never heard of it, and the other 40% have an uncle's sisters stepson who have gone... People in academia are a different story, obviously)

So my choices:

McGill/American: Definitely into International stuff
McGill/(Rutgers/Seton Hall):  Got her education Cheap
McGill/Indiana: is she crazy?

and my reaches/prayer schools (I think there is a ring to them both ;))
McGill/ND: very concerned with human rights (if you knew my UG degree is in International Development)
McGill/W&M: She was obviously tired of Canadian winters...
