i tend to think, "hey thats good, i have a chance." unless they have the URM advantage, in which case knowing they got accepted doesnt really help
Yeah, I saw someone get into Cornell with my exact same numbers but was URM. Made me want to tear my hair out (not like I was expecting an acceptance with a 156 or anything
Whenever I see a non-URM with close to my numbers get into Boalt, though, I get this horrible false sense of hope. I wish they'd send me my letter and get it over with already. I'm starting to DREAM about them. That's never good, heh.
