i've had a lot of dreams about Columbia, where I am looking for housing, and am walking around the campus. but was my alma mater and have a hell's shot of getting in for law school, so must be wishful thinking.

i have had dreams about NU, but where a rep came to reject my application personally. haha. sigh.

I want to do a Northwestern love song or something--"I think of you every morning/dream of you every night..."

Having the same thing here--I will be devastated if I don't get in.

I dreamed I was accepted to NU and couldn't stop screaming. I was trying to decide whether to go there or Chicago (which I'm not evcen applying to) but couldn't concentrate because I was screaming so loud.

I distinctly remember thinking that I sounded a lot like John Lennon singing Twist and Shout. Weird.

So the last time there was a Twitter hinting at more decisions, they were mainly rejections right

I agree! Let's do this! I'm ready.

[edit: was referring to harshness of tweeting a pile of rejections]
Yeah, that was harsh. But for the AdComms, that's the hardest part, so it's probably really exciting to get the culling work done. Imagine: your job is to crush thousands of dreams every year. You'd have to find something to get excited about.

Yes, you'll get the Congrats email in which it says to go to the status checker for your official acceptance letter. Good luck everyone :D
