REJECTED, ETC. TODAY
« on: February 08, 2008, 01:53:58 PM »
LoveButton's right...I don't feel right griping on the celebratory thread.  So here's the place for everyone to vent.

Haven't gone home yet, but I'm sure there's some thin envelopes and stress-inducing mail waiting for me :(.

This forum is the b.s./stress mecca.  Gotta love it.

Rejected from Hastings and SMU the past couple weeks.
Obsessively checking a site that really helps us all little.

Deferred at  Chicago and Harvard yesterday and the day before.  Expecting a deferral/waitlist at Columbia today or tomorrow.  Ugh.

Rejection from Columbia (duh) and GWU waitlist on Monday.  Due to postal service snafoo (sp?) I called Emory and American to make sure they hadn't sent me anything and was informed my file is still with the committee. 16 weeks later.

No news from ANYBODY since Sunday. I'm expecting all the bad stuff that's going around here fairly soon. A rejection at Harvard and Columbia, a waitlist at Chicago, etc.

But why in the world have I not heard a thing from Virginia and Berkeley? I've been complete long enough to have received some word.

And what's the deal with USC and UCLA?

I agree this should be a sticky. The acceptance thread is great and uplifting, but most of us will get rejected from some schools, or held, or waitlisted, etc. This is a great place to vent about it.

Agree - I don't know how to do that though.  I know, I'm a technology retard.

Anyway......I can honestly say I don't know what to expect in terms of decisions this cycle anymore.  I got rejections from the places I was expecting to, but I was sure I would have heard from Emory and American by now.  I've seen people I didn't think had the numbers get in, and people I thought were a shoe-in not get in.  So who knows anymore???

I'm dying waiting for UVA. I've been complete since mid-October!!

I released my spots at NW and Vandy today; I hope one of you benefits.

Yes, I know I've assigned myself the wrong gender on LSN. I apologize for offending the Francophones, but I'm not creating a whole new account to correct the error. Please stop leaving me messages.

I don't wait well.  I'm an instant gratification sort of girl.  :-[
