I think it went fairly well, but there's no way of knowing until I get a decision, right?! All I know is that I didn't botch it.

After doing that for about a minute when the call arrived, I had a nice conversation. Like ht2988, no way of knowing until a decision comes around, either striking me down with all the wrath of Zeus or resting me gently on the bosom of Aphrodite.

There was an emphasis on a quick turnaround. A quick decision (probably within a week and if they had their way with time in 1-2 days) and a quick response to that decision.

Every time you post I basically run here. I may (definitely am) be more invested in your waitlist experience than I ever was in any of mine.

Woo Tekrul!

acceptable. 90% of my A/D/W forum posts are an anxious/rage filled ball of nerves so, whimsical is a charming change-up :wink:

now that I think about it, if I saw you or rosie post, I'd probably do a full stop in the middle of the highway, throw it in park, and read furiously lol

Thanks! Handed in my financial aid information. They informed me that they may not be able to get financial info back to me before the deadline to respond.
