I was so excited for you that I almost squealed in excitement on a conference call. CONGRATS!
P.S. If the fellowship rumor is true, you now have options;)

Hopefully you get your JS/KB/Whoever isn't pregnant anymore 2 prior to the ASW next week so you can really make it a fair battle between S and H 8)

haha, the timing of the invites seems to make this a likely possiblity. omg Dani.B, where do u think u will go? such awesome options! i am super biased in favor of stanford, of course, but it is almost impossible to look at this decision objectively when one T3 school wants u and another doesn't. of course, this bias ends where yale begins...god, i'm sounding like more of an elitist prick with each passing day. gotta stop spending so much time at certain tls forums (not this one, obvs)

I am happy to take any HYS acceptance off the hands of any fellow URM who declines to attend.

Not even an issue.

I want Stanford so bad still. I was so excited when I got in at H, but I still wake up every day hoping for a call from Stanford. Is anyone in at Columbia here? I have not heard anything from them since I went complete and am curious to see how that cycle is going for other URMs.

So did the URM wave really come and go?

I think it'd still go with Stanford but I hoped to use Harvard for fin aid negotiations. Oh well. Won't complain.

I think the "wave" is still slowly building since apparently theres still far less URMs accepted here and on LSN than in other years. God I want a KB1 SO badly!!!

URMs seem to be overrepresented in the pending decisions on LSN.

I've heard that lots of URMs are accepted to Harvard off the WL. Good luck to everyone still hoping for Harvard!!!

I don't have anything yet either. There are at least a few other URMs on LSN who haven't heard anything too. I'm almost sure that TakeCare hasn't. Not sure about Champion11, Growlithe, and 121212 (she's going to Stanford, so she may have withdrawn). I think they're making their way through the pile and we should hear something soon!
