This doesn't really belong on the off-topic board but I had to share my rage. Props, the future isn't looking so hot for us at Bama next year...
i'm sorry, melanie. i really want you to get in!
call them. send an email to claude. if you really
want to go there, let them know.
i think they are on the fence about you. i think what this means is that they think they might want you, but they're checking deposits and such. it's odd that they haven't waitlisted you, instead choosing to defer you. i think that means that you're likely to get in, it just may not be for a few more weeks. just in case all the 170+ people they admitted make a run on the school and all choose to come (which won't happen).
