The fortune in my fortune cookie today read that "soon you will be sitting on top of the world." I raced back from lunch to check my email accounts only to an email notice that my water bill is overdue. To think that I am actually trying to find faith in fortune cookies ...

the problem with sitting on top of the world is that it's a long way down, and that's the only place you can go...

Every single day...emails around 5:00 PM are especially annoying.

My other fortune cookie read "now is the best take to make circles with mints, do not haste any longer" ... not sure what the fortune god's are trying to tell me ...

Might I suggest writing yet another LOCI but taping the aforementioned fortune to the bottom of it with a simple, "I suggest you act fast Northwestern. When this Eastern prophecy comes to pass, you're going to want to have made the right choice and pulled the trigger on a winner. I am your winner."

It would certainly be well remembered. I have narrowed down my WL targets to 5 schools. I will have to think it over, but I am very tempted to send such an LOCI to one of these schools (a school that I would absolutely attend if not offered admission to any of the others). I think that this can be done in a very clever and creative way.

Just got an acceptance email (off the waitlist), too. Didn't write a LOCI, no "Why NU" essay, and actually said in my PS that, "Living in Chicago for a winter taught me that certain climates aren't fit for human habitation." I thought for sure that'd disqualify me!

Anyone know what's going on with their financial aid? Any still available?

Thanks! I'm willing to bet you'll probably get similar word soon, Rayiner. Looks like they're sending a batch out now...

I actually had a recent fortune cookie fortune say that I'd make a good lawyer. I was contemplating sending that in with a LOCI...

Ahhh, so the NU>>>GULC is more personal. Chicago is a very fun city, but I'm just a little too warm-blooded for it there. Great school, great city (just get plenty of really warm clothes if you don't already have them), and summers there are a blast (there are multiple street festivals every single weekend of the summer). Enjoy it!

FYI--looks like this round is mixed. On LSN, someone with a 166/3.8 also got in off the waitlist today.

Ha, just a bit more personal. Almost everyone I've talked to has opted for NU in the head to head match up. I'm sure you'll get along great at GULC. Good luck!

I really want to see rayiner and SBL post about being lifted off the WL. Doesn't NU know they are supposed to do this so that I can have them both in Chicago? :x
