I know, right? It needed the extra oomph.

...but really. This blows. Not just waiting for snail mail, but doing so with no indication that something is even coming...

It's bullshit. And if they didn't send email to Canadians this year, which seems to be the case since no Canadian has reported one, that is low. Especially since they sent them last year.

Jesus that Dosem track is sick. My knowledge of techno is unfortunately limited to whoring off the Paxahau archives, going to Meiotic events here in Chicago and big names like Matthew Dear or Michael Mayer. That's good stuff though. :D

Laughed really hard at the comment on the 2nd video: "i listened to this tripping and burst into tears it sounds so amazing"

For those in Texas:

My letter had a date of 24th, and the time stamp on the postage was the 25th.

Thanks all for the congrats! I'm actually pretty surprised by the scholarship, to be honest. Good luck to those still waiting.

Got the GULC- postmarked 1/26. But no VCE. So I said eff it all, and went to the beach for an hour. Definitely pulled me out of the funk.

Effin' NYC with your snowstorms, cramping everyone's style. Also realizing that should I get VCE, this is the last year I'll be wearing a bathing suit outside in January for a looooong time. Seasonal Affective Disorder ahoy!

I'm glad you liked it! I actually just Matthew dear on wednesday, it was great! I'm really jealous that you are in Chicago... My friend lives there and the scene is apparently thriving, and while Detroit might be the birthplace of techno, I don't make it there as often as I should...(besides demf of course :D )

And to add to the conspiracy theories, I just got the admit packet (VCE on thursday), but still haven't gotten the gulc packet (though someone on this thread in my same town did)...

I don't know how the techno scene is in New York, I don't remember it being all that great when I was in school at NYU. Since I may be back at NYU... I guess I'll find out lol.

Grrrrr. I not only did NOT get my GULC packet or a VCE in Cali today, but we had no mail whatsoever for the second day in a row. This is exactly what happened when I was waiting for my purple envelope, and I still refuse to believe that when there are 6 girls living in our apartment there are actually days when none of us get a single piece of mail - let alone for multiple days in a row. My mailperson totally fails!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:

I've gotten no mail for a week now. But I guess the snowstorm being here makes it make a bit more sense. BUT STILL. GRR!! :evil: :evil: :evil:

Yeah I was at the beach all day, so there's NO REASON the mail should be sucking where I'm at. But you're right that it's very frustrating regardless.

I got my GULC package (postmarked 01/25) so I think I might be heading for a waitlist. Oh well.

Yeah I've given up now and am fully expecting a waitlist/ding. But then I realized that there was never a point where I was expecting anything else, so all is good and normal in the world. But I do wish I could have my GULC packet so I can be even more excited about the schools that do want me!

Yeah, a WL at Columbia makes my decision fairly easy I think.

I have three schools left to hear from. I wish they would get it over with it one way or another. I keep getting my hopes up.

+1 I know that I should probably write them off, but a little piece of me keeps wondering what if?

I'm holding out for CLS at the very most until the end of next week, but probably just until I get my GULC package, & then I'm writing it off. Have written off YHS since the beginning, so this is it!

+1 I'm starting to have some regrets about applying to so many schools - still waiting to hear from 8. Part of me wants to withdraw from the rest since I am happy with my options so far, but I would probably be more frustrated by wondering "what if?"
