1st Ding - So relieved!
« on: April 12, 2005, 10:16:16 AM »
I finally got my first rejection.  It was nice of Cardozo to notify me mid-April that I didn't have to start school with them in May!  I'm actually happy that it's no longer an option for me, as I'm desparate to move out of the NYC area, and it's the only school that would have made me stay here. 

Has anyone else ever been so relieved to get a rejection?

I was, actually.

My SO and I decided that we really didn't want to stay in Boston, but I felt some pressure/obligation to apply to BC.  So I did, and they rejected me EA.  It was like a blessing on our decision to get out, and now we're heading to Atlanta in the fall!

The only rejection I got was from my safety school, Seattle. lol Can't say I was relieved to get it, but since I've gotten in everywhere else, no worries.

I hate rejection.  I would feel no relief.  None!

I am still pending at few schools.  One of them is UTK.  If I get accpeted at UTK, it's going to be a tough decision to make between UAR-Fay with $$ and low debt and UTK with huge debt.
