Waitlisted at Duke, really I'm kind of surprised about it. Was expecting a rejection.
That succinctly articulates my general feeling.
"Wow I got waitlisted, totally wasn't expecting it at Duke. This is great."
"Well crap, it's another waitlist that I'll stick on and probably not get off of. And it makes my decision no easier still."
In a way, it makes no sense, does it? You can get rejected at, say, WUSTL or UConn, then get waitlisted at Duke or get into Berkeley...then you get a rejection from a "safe school" like Tulane or Cardozo...or even worse, Santa Clara or somewhere.
