Not to derail the thread, but do ED acceptances hear back faster than rejections?

lol, no! I meant the not visiting part. Surfing is really cool though, I'm just not any good at it.

just kidding I mean it always seems like everyone's best shot and it looks like a lot of people go for it. the idea of going somewhere with a laid back reputation in the south (where things are already pretty laid back) appeals to me.

Me too! It seems really perfect, but ED is just kind of scary. I probably wouldn't get in anyways, but it still really freaks me out!

i did it. i knew the weather would be great, heard the campus was beautiful. figured there was nothing to lose. i was right, it's lovely.

In all seriousness I feel like the best way to get to know a school is by talking to its students. I'd rather do it in person but I feel like the TLS people are pretty honest. I feel like visiting a school is kinda too much like a vacation to get a real feel for what the place is like anyways.
