So far, I have three & half dings. I thought the waiting part was bad... Getting three & half dings in a week is worse... Someone told me that acceptences usually take longer than dings, but I doubt there is any truth in that, the person probably said to make me feel better. I have been so anxious to get an acceptence letter so I can take a week off from work and go skiing to celebrate... But I guess that won't be happening any time soon.. I can't believe I've sunk this low to complain about my Dings... Ahh, the application blues continues... My heart goes out to all the fellow applicants who are starting with streak of Dings... Good luck to you all.
