That is weird and there seem to be a lot of people who are getting into better schools who haven't heard back yet. My turnaround was quick - submitted 11/4, accepted 12/4 w/ no Why Mich. UVA and Duke are taking forever for me though.

Sorry about all the bad news, E! NYU, Michigan, and Northwestern are all fantastic schools though! One of those will be lucky to have you.

Congrats on your cycle to date, especially the Harvard acceptance and the Darrow!! I have to say that it's weird that you were WL'd at Columbia and Chicago. With your high numbers I'd have thought you'd have gotten a Butler/Hamilton or a Ruby. I guess it doesn't really matter now. Where are you leaning towards??

Thanks. I'd go to Yale or Stanford if I got in. Yale because it's Yale and Stanford because of family/location. As of now I'm about 51-49 in favor of turning down the Darrow for Harvard. But, that changes most days.

For all you Cornellies admitted today, when did you apply/go under review. Kind of worried that I haven't hear yet, but then again I just went complete 1/19.
