The defer sorta calmed down since it feels like I can write a LOCI/send in an additional rec...as in do something about it besides just waiting.The theory that Defer > WL is comforting too.
Yeah, I'm just gonna get on with my life and start visiting schools to see which one is the best for me. Then, if I somehow get accepted later, it'll be like finding a 20 dollar bill in your coat jacket that you totally forgot about, except instead of 20 bucks, it's Harvard!
It'd be more like a check for $1000 you forgot to cash 2 months ago
I did write and send "If you have a special interest in attending Harvard, please feel free to tell us about that as well. Any new information that you feel might be helpful is appropriate."I think it was probably too long. But it was true. I figured I had little to lose so I went with blunt and personal.
