How much would you pay to know your admissions decisions NOW?

I just realized that Harvard, Stanford, and Columbia probably won't get back to me until late January based on last year's completion/notification statistics.  I want to know before Christmas, damn it!

What would you pay to know the rest of your decisions, regardless of whether they were admits or denials?  I voted $100.  I might be anxious, but I'm still living on the parental dime.

I would pay 500. Think about all the time you would save just thinking about it all day. I try to leave work an hour early everyday just to check the mail at home. I

i voted for >100.  i'd pay $150 without a second thought.  i'm trying to save money so i can quit my job a month or two before actually moving for LS, so i wouldn't spend too much.  sad that i start budgeting hypotheticals.  ha ha.

so this would be total?  whom would we pay?  i'm waiting for four big ones.  i'd pay $50 each, easily.  so i'm at $200 now.  eh, whatever.  i'm thinking too hard about this.
i am officially the biggest nerd of LSD!  ::gleaming with pride, as i shine my yoda trophy::

I would give the last $386 left in my checking account.  It would be well worth it.

I'd pay $50. That's almost an entire day of work's pay for me (after taxes LOL). Maybe even more. I really just want to know about my CA schools so that I can start planning. The scholarship potential too. If I knew about scholarships, I could be a lot more relaxed in Belize next week. As it stands, I'm thinking: Hmm, maybe we don't need to snorkel, swim with the sharks or parasail. It's only Belize. I can save the money for LS!
