That being said, I want all you guys to know that even if you get an email, you will be accepted to other schools. It's so early in the process and having one school out might actually be nice, cause it's one less thing to worry about and narrows down your the vast # of places you could end up, which personally caused me a lot of anxiety.
I personally understand that the adcoms are pressured by rankings and need the #, but I will still be disappointed if I just get a flat out ding. Same goes for my feelings about some of the people I've met here- you guys are awesome! Keep it up and good news will come! I do, however, think that GULC is more # focused on the spectrum of (top) schools, so don't let this one decision (if it's negative) discourage you !!
But there's no mail from anyone, even in DC today so don't get down, plus they said they don't send emails out on weekends so we will find out saturday or monday. I think we have a shot, let's not become pessimistic peggys
