At this point I'm praying for a waitlist... I'm really scared to go home and check my mail today

Exactly. We happened to be available at the same time, so I decided to drop by and ask a few questions. The issue of more offers was not one of them; it only came up during the conversation.

Which way are you leaning, CR? I'm curious, now that you have only a couple weeks to decide. Have you withdrawn from Yale yet?

I guess I survived this round, then. In Boston, didn't get rejected yesterday.

It's been a fun ride guys. One that has lasted 5.5 months! And one that for me is finally over.

See some of you at HLS I hope ^_^

Hmm, damn nixxers, I sorta wanted to go to school with you. Anyway, good luck in Cambridge.



Aww crackberry ::sneefles:: we can still be frenz. :) I'd go to both if I could :P heck and michigan too!


UPDATE: email I got today:

Dean Deal's Minions wrote:Thank you for your email.

A decision letter was mailed to you yesterday, April 12, 2010, offering you to be on our wait list.

We will withdraw your application from our wait list.

Best wishes on your future endeavors.



Waitlist madness is about to ensue, good luck y'all ;)

Dinged. 172/3.9.

Apparently it was mailed yesterday, I haven't received it yet, but I was told over the phone because I have a scholarship deadline tomorrow.

Best of luck to those still standing.

is it legit to simply call up the admissions office and ask for the status of your application? is there anything wrong with doing this?

Nope, just don't do it regularly because they'll probably begin to find you annoying.

I'm scared to call asking for my status and they rush my decision.....they need to take their TIME. Especially since they're serving rejections like pies.

The people giving the status updates aren't the ones making the decision. Stanford has been the friendliest office I've encountered. Hopefully my LOCI moved me from the reject pile to waitlist pile :P

Did you ask for "a blowjob" when you meant "an update on my application status"?

Otherwise, it doesn't matter.
