maybe i will only drop the "top choice" bomb on the waitlist one, but then i thought i probably have a better chance at the school that hasn't made a decision yet. so it might be more worth it for that one. good luck with yours pinky!
Just tell every school they're you're top choice. What's the worst that could happen? They make you an offer and you refuse it? Come on, these people have put us through so much emotional and psychological turmoil that it would be nice to turn the tables and throw a little hardship their way.
