Are Butlers/Hamiltons mentioned in the body of the "Congrats you're in" letter? I'm wondering since I've only received an email so far and have yet to get my NCE. Though I'm pretty sure I wouldn't qualify for either.

And congrats to the new admits!

What to do what to do?

Oh yeah, forgot it's not per year (duh). In that case, going back to my post with the convoluted analysis on page 29, I counted 10 people reporting Hamiltons on LSN and none of them confirming that they accepted it. Beyond that, I'm not sure of the total offered. All I can say is that it looks pretty common to turn down the Hamilton.

Went back and counted 4. Not sure if all of them have LSN profiles.

In today via disappointingly white envelope. Butler. Will probably be withdrawing.

177/3.7, complete 11/27.

Dropping by to say "in" in the Mountain West--which SpicyYoda seems to have defined earlier. No dollars, but my primary soft is the fact that I was ski bum, so the acceptance seems fun enough as it is.

Just to clarify, there's no precedence for negotiating into a butler or Hamilton (or from a butler to a Hamilton), correct?

I've searched for this before and could never find anything, so I don't think so but I could be wrong.

In SoCal, nothing here yet, that person who got in with a 1/8 complete got my 1/14 hopes up.
