I suppose. It's not like it was on their front burner, though.

I was about the last to know most of mine.  the mail came to my house, my mom opened it and emailed me.  i assume she told every living sole she knows about my acceptances, and maybe the waitlists, too.

Huh. I can't imagine not telling my parents for a month. Do you only talk to them once a month, or did you actually have conversations with them and not mention that you'd been getting insane amounts of love from the top school in the country?

I talk to them fairly often, but getting love from Cornell isn't, in their cosmology, something that would really register as being important. They think (thought?) that becoming a lawyer is a pretty tacky thing to do, and a waste of an otherwise promising life. They figure I should move back to my home town and teach elementary or high school, buy a house, raise a family, maybe run for Mayor one day etc.  Of course, a big part of me thinks that they're right.

I wasn't referring to Cornell, obviously.

Huh, that's weird. My parents are ambiguous about me going to law school, but they were still rooting for me to get into the places I wanted. And how many housewives/schoolteachers become mayor?
