Sorry to hear about the rejections.  Harvard isn't a bad punishment though. 

I think what will ultimately cheer you up comes when Roy Williams wins his first national title next month.

I am SO SORRY to hear the bad news, but please do you keep your chin up very high as you'll be heading to harvard!!! You have much to be proud of and I am so happy for you. I wish I was there now to give you a HUG HUG, and please take comfort in knowing that you have the support of many on here. One day I'll drive down from Michigan to Cambridge for that hug I owe you.

Warm hugs and kisses

"I was on 3 waitlists and I miraculously got in 2 of the schools.  I called both dean of admissions to plead my case, I sent in a letter to both telling them why their school was my first choice, and I sent in an additional letter of recommendation.  For one school I was lucky because my mom's friend knew the dean and gave him a call.  That probably helped."
 

someone told two schools that they were his "first choice?"  isn't that a bit unethical?  you can only attend one school, you know  :P

pookie:

i am still planning to visit usc on admitted students day.  are you going to be there?  i guess you probably won't, but it would be nice to meet you there!  i'm not really considering usc as an option, but i bought the plane tickets before i heard from harvard, and it's gonna be a great excuse for me and two of my girlfriends to lay out on the beach when we should be in class!

lookwhois:

i'd love to have that hug, but you better wear what you had on in your previous avatar!  ::)

to everyone else:

tre1160 sent me a very nice apology.  i also feel that i was a little too spiteful in my responses to him (i am normally not a mean person, i swear) so i apologize too.  <hugs all around>

Damn, I'd be pissed if I didn't get in with those numbers. 3.9/175 is well above their average.

I'm jumping on this thread a little late, but just wanted to express my condolences. Sorry to hear about the rejections, JayHawk ... but, since you *do* have that Harvard acceptance under your belt, I can only say I'm a little sorry.  ;) But, seriously, think about this way: you can still say that you got into the best law school in the country, and very few people would argue with you (!!!).

(And I second the advice about the Hah-vahd handbook, since Stanford hasn't been too generous with their wooing.)

i don't think i'm invited, since i withdrew my acceptance.  :-\  think they'd mind if i crash?   ;D

i'd been planning on ditching work that day to play anyway, but i'm taking the following week off (on a red-eye friday night), so i don't think the ditching will be much appreciated, by my bosses or my checkbook.
