It was 216 58 earlier today (someone PMd asking me)
Now it is 223 62 so the wave was ~11 people.


Looks like our best hope is the WL now. :(

Because THEY are the top 2? They're very different schools. I didnt apply to S. Why your top 2?


I know they are different. In a world of neutral locations (or if I lived on the east coast), it would just be Yale, then nothing for a mile, then probably Harvard.

I live right by Stanford. My family and friends are here. So that gives it a huge bump in my ranking.

I don't choose which schools are my faves just on rankings. I didn't even apply to columbia

I feel this. Exact same situation with respect to S, still holding out hope there. I'm going to stop checking this thread now that it looks like there are no spots left at Y.

Honestly I feel better now. I'm either going to get a WL or a rejection, and I can start figuring things out accordingly. Band-aid is ripped off.

I changed my poll response to the just need closure thing, and I expect I'll get exactly that in the next few days.

This is positive. I'm being positive.
