oh, RBG, I'm sorry to hear about Yale. And you only have Harvard and Stanford as back-ups, that sucks  ;). OK bad attempt at a joke, but you're all good though. Shake it off and keep it moving.

That's not too bad of news since you have already been accepted at Harvard....probably made your decision easier  :)

Sorry about Yale :( It's their loss.  Anyhoo, is this the end of the process for you?  If not, what will be some of your deciding factors?

I wish the process was over for me :-\  The waiting is the worst.

I'm going to visit Harvard and Stanford and go to the school at which I think I'll be happier.

Hey RGB:

Question. Would you choose another school over S/H if they gave you much $$?
