Jess asked me what my plans are for next year and I told her I'm going to Chi on a half scholly and that I'm on the fence about Harvard because of financial reasons. Jess told me to take a look at the financial aid info on the H website to get a ballpark estimate and to get back to her as soon as possible regarding whether I would be comfortable going to a need based system of financial aid. I distinctly remember her saying that "a waitlist offer from Harvard is the end of the conversation, not the beginning of the conversation."
I have a sneaking suspicion that if I had said I was sold on H, I would've gotten an offer (based on her words/tone and what has been posted in this thread) but I didn't feel comfortable stating that I had no reservations about enrolling when that's not the case.
Exactly the same as my convo with her. What you thinking you going to do?
