I hate my phone every time it rings and I see who isn't calling.

I'm so sorry to hear about the emails.

As I've gotten older, I've realized that what matters most is not where you go or what you're given but that wherever you go and whatever you're given, you kill it and you commit to doing your best. I know we'll all do great wherever we go, as long as we keep at and never give in.

Mort still standing... for now...

Spot on. Right now though I'm committed to doing my best at freaking out until I know where I'm going. :D

It's such a nasty little surprise to see that WL email nestled in between a facebook notification, some spam, a couple work emails, and a bank notification.

That just came for me today, and even though I'm already in at GULC I still get nervous! I keep thinking it's going to say "Oh sorry about that, we sent your letter to the wrong place. Psych!"

Aaaand ding.

3.69/3.8/171

My only real chance was to luck into a JS1 and kill the interview.
I suppose the finality of a rejection is better to the drawn out anticipation of a WL. Though I'll believe this more a week or so from now.

Which was nice, because between the time I saw the (1) in my inbox and then had a chance to see it's not a ding/wl from Harvard, I had the opportunity to experience several heart attacks

Man, sorry to hear the first rejection wave is coming out. :(

So far it looks like most of the people reporting didn't have a JS1?

Thanks. I shouldn't be too surprised honestly, but it's the first ding of my cycle. Still have loads of great options though.
IKR?? From the earlier posts I thought I dodged the bullet today.

Did you all who got the sad news have any recent date changes to indicate today would be the day?


Nope, I haven't had any changes since I went complete 11/4.

At least Harvard was pretty fast with their rejection. Now I can go back to hating MA. GPA and LSAT both ~25%

I wish they would just decide who was getting dings first, then send out a mass email wave. The slow drip of dings is just salt in the wound.
