I call bull on all the anxiety and stress that waiting has been causing. It's a load of darn. I just realized this tonight. I picked a somewhat arbitrary "drop dead" date of March 18. After that date, I will assume no more acceptances or scholarship offers are coming, and I will make my decision based on the schools that have already accepted me and whatever financial aid packages are already on the table. If a miracle comes through a month later (Like my Penn deferral turning into an admit) then I can worry about frantically adjusting my plans at that point. In the meantime, I'm done checking online status and e-mail every 20 minutes, and I'm done rushing home to the mailbox every night after work. Most importantly for everyone else, I'm also done bitching about it on LSD By the way, I've also come to the conclusion that all the pessimism on LSD about the last acceptances having already gone out is a load of darn too. Most of my first deposits aren't due until the end of APRIL. That's two months away. Almost all of these schools had application deadlines less than two weeks ago, and they get a huge percentage of their apps the week before the deadline. I fully expect to be admitted by at least 2 more schools, but it may not be in the next week.
Are you leaning to any particular school right now? It looks like you've been accepted to a couple of my top choices (Univ. of Illinois and Northwestern). Like you, I'm still holding on the Univ. of Georgia as well.
