e.g. In W & L Out at FSU; In at Columbia Out at Cornell; In at Vandy Out at GW

I don't know if this qualifies as ironic, but I got accepted at Temple with a full ride and waitlisted at Villanova.   ???

These certainly seem like bizarre and contradictory results, but they're more Alanis Morissette ironic than actually ironic.

Right.  "Ironic" isn't getting into a school you shouldn't have and getting rejected from a school you should have gotten into.

"Ironic" would be working hard through the whole admissions process to get into the school of your dreams, finally getting a letter that you got in, and then walking outside and getting mauled to death by a tiger that escaped from the local zoo.

Actually, that might not be ironic either, just funny.

This just made my day.... hahahhahahahahahahahaha

In at GULC ($$$), GW ($$), Fordham ($$), USC ($$), BC ($$$$), and Vandy.  Waitlisted at UIUC as an URM?!?!?!?!  Also priority WL at UVa.  That UIUC decision really confuses me.

The only "ironic" thing about my cycle has actually been scholarship amounts, I guess. Going into the cycle, I expected that for any candidate with given numbers, the percentage of tuition covered by scholarship would have a strong linear correlation with ranking. The data from my cycle would suggest a quadratic relationship, however.
