Came across this gem today. Abe Lincoln's letter to his son when he learned that little George didn't get into Harvard:

My dear George,

I have scarcely felt greater pain in my life than on learning yesterday from Bob's letter, that you failed to enter Harvard University. And yet there is very little in it, if you will allow no feeling of discouragement to seize, and prey upon you. It is a certain truth, that you can enter, and graduate in, Harvard University; and having made the attempt, you must succeed in it. "Must" is the word.

I know not how to aid you, save in the assurance of one of mature age, and much severe experience, that you can not fail, if you resolutely determine, that you will not.

The President of the institution, can scarcely be other than a kind man; and doubtless he would grant you an interview, and point out the readiest way to remove, or overcome, the obstacles which have thwarted you.

In your temporary failure there is no evidence that you may not yet be a better scholar, and a more successful man in the great struggle of life, than many others, who have entered college more easily.

Again I say let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed.

With more than a common interest I subscribe myself Very truly your friend,

A. Lincoln.


So at least no one has that kind of pressure ITT.

I'm counting 7 JS2s on Monday, mostly for recent completes but also with an early October and January n there; two waitlists on each of the 8th and 9th; and a scattering of dings a few days later.

eta: there was also an early October JS2 on Monday the 15th.

Waitlist for me as well :( . Email came at 3:16.

Stats in profile. Had my JS1 early January. I'll probably be riding this for a while, but do have a family so am less flexible than some.
