Wow. I didn't anticipate such strong reactions to my news.

Yeah, well, for obvious reasons I was pulling for you. Lord only knows what's in my mailbox now or what will be in coming days. Very sorry to see you leave the pool, but at least you've got a slew of good options.

I don't suppose you murdered a nun or anything, did you? Because that would be reassuring to me.

LOL...nope, nothing like that. It could have been any number of things, e.g., they didn't like my essay, my school is probably considered mediocre at best, my major was easy (by relative comparison).

Best of luck with HLS - I hope you receive better news in the coming days.
I'm done with apps...waiting to visit schools and make a decision.

Mind giving us an idea of your numbers to further freak us out?

Thanks. Appreciate it. Sorry about the ding. Do you have some other acceptances to fall back on?

Ding.  I was expecting it. Complete 12/8, dated 1/24, postmarked 1/26, arrived in NY today.

Rejected today as well.  Slightly under 3.6 (ivy)/173

Oh well, was expecting a deferral at best.  Now I just need to hear from Chicago and I can be done with this cycle.

What date were you complete?
