yeh, new york resident here. i wonder if they have to take a certain number of people from california or if cali folks get preference when they are pulling people from the WL. Yeh, I really hope I get in too. I haven't heard anything from her yet, and I didn't get that email yet. I hope a lot of people turn her down like you did. I guess that's my only chance since I'm obviously not this woman's first choice. I wonder what specifically they are looking for and what the time frame is. but i can't call because it said no to. ugghhh!!! very frustrating. anyway, thank you for your support Tiyo. how do you calculate your selection index. is my 160, 3.55 comparable to your stats?
