Seriously, though, good luck to the rest of you guys, I'm sure there are going to be at least a couple of you that makes it.

i'm sorry man, but no worries you're clearly a lock for a top school. you probably would have gotten into nyu ed had you gone that route.

What was the deal with that blog post then? As far as we know they only accepted another 3 applicants after that. Why the big announcement? There must be SOME acceptances coming...

I never understood the whole "You should just ED this school" thing. Isn't the whole point of ED to apply to a school that you love more than any other school? I know it gives you a boost but I could never see myself EDing somewhere just because I thought it would get me in to a better school. That's just me though

Nah, I was being sarcastic. If I was playing my ED card strategically, I would have gone for Penn or NYU. But I ED'd at the school I really wanted to go to. No regrets.

Exactly what I was saying, and I'm sure you'll end up at a great school.

:cry:

Just checked my mail, nothing yet. I'm starting to wish they would just get it over with.

Save me one of those bumper stickers, too. I think I'll be needing it, especially since I didn't even apply to HY or Penn, and Cornell's admission's office seems like it was taken over by this guy:

Really sorry to hear that helmholtz. I was really rooting for you. Kind of like the creepy stalker who watches you from the bushes but never speaks to you.

Yep. +3 and, while it's no consolation at this point I'm sure, I think I speak for all of TLS when I say "Fuck Columbia" on your behalf.

Um, you said on the Optimism thread that you got into YLS. So, in my mind, you're in an even better position than if you had gotten into CLS.

I think that may have been a joke.

Another ED applicant checking in. Just got my deferral in the mail dated 12/11. All things considered, I think it's as good as I could have expected. Good luck to the rest of you.

I haven't been following this thread as closely, but any idea what percentage of ED applicants got accepted, rejected, or deferred?
