Technically, my eight weeks is up next week. But a boy can dream, right?

Nope, mine went to complete and hasn't updated since. But I had a good interview and strong softs, so would be surprised if I get a ding.

Nope, mine went to complete and hasn't updated since. But I had a really really good interview, so would be surprised if I get a ding.


Very happy to hear that. Everything that does/doesn't happen to me I take as a horrible sign...

I'm not sure if that is supposed to be a ray of sunshine or despair.

I just about had a heart attack getting a phone call from an unknown Chicago phone number about 15 minutes after that tweet. Of course I answered that call with a loud and cracked "Hello?" in the middle of the library. Unfortunately it was a prerecorded safety system test from my school, which was about when I realized that NU releases their decisions via email. Not my best moment.

Went complete 11/29 and no change since then. I choose to interpret that to mean that they only needed to take one look at my app to decide that they want me there.

:D

It's just the insane ramblings of a nervous wreck.

I'm testing the strength of Gmail's servers right now.

I'm trusting gmail to push notification to my Mac mail app. I feel like refreshing gmail is a step into madness I'm not quite ready to make.

Wholeheartedly awaiting a WL email tomorrow (LORs didn't get attached and I had to cancel my interview). My 8 weeks is so completely up.

They can successfully handle upwards of 45,000 refreshes per minute from a single IP address.

Am I still insane if I know that what I'm doing is insane? I mean - it's fine to say yes.

Not sure which I'm more impressed with, gmail's server or your F5 clicking abilities.

Very good point. But my 8 weeks WOULD be up by next Wednesday and since it seems there's only movement on Fridays...
