Penn, UVA, and Columbia apparently issued a string of dings and WLs today.

Ouch! Why would they do that? I think they should organize amongst themselves and take turns dinging and wait-listing people. That way there's always SOME good news. I'm gonna go have a stern talk with these Deans... brb :P

By doing it at the same time, at least they only ruin one day instead of an entire week in an applicant's life.

But it balances out [strike]if[/strike] when you get an acceptance from one of the other two schools.

In at Stanford (my beloved UG) today!!! Two-thirds of the way to the much-coveted Triple Crown!

Third top-5 acceptance (fourth top-10), improved to 6-0 for the cycle overall.

Actually all the schools I applied to have told me they're waiting for my December scores, so I don't expect to hear anything yet.

Mrs. Trucker, yay! Congratulate Mr. Trucker on all of our behaves tomorrow.

Wow, that's terrific although certainly not unexpected news. I hope that Tupper Ware is binky-ing in celebration!

UVA must be among D's top choices...looks like you'll have a very Merry Christmas!

MrsTrucker: Tupper is still not feeling his best. I have him in his cage for the rest of the night. Hopefully, he will feel better tomorrow. :( It makes me sad when my baby is sicky.

Don't be sad Mrs. Trucker, Tupper will be fine. Just imagine the kind of living arrangements you will be able to provide for him once D finishes law school at his and your choice of the top law schools in America. You can have little bunny slides, with a big bunny bed, and the best cilantro and carrots flown in from....well, I guess wherever that stuff grows well at...Plus, you may be able to afford a little Mrs. Tupper for Mr. Tupper....:D

lol, I totally dig the soundtrack, too. If you need a guitarist for your own bunny skywalk video, I'm your man. Vocalist...not so much.

And if you need a pianist for anything, I'm happy to assist. I've heard that rabbits love Beethoven, Mozart, etc.

I had no idea....I can totally play the Fur Elise on guitar. I'm sure Bunnies like Skynyrd and Metallica too though, right?

Haha, the two of us are going to turn Tupper into a music connoiseur. I'll have to practice my scales a bit though.

I could pull off "Locomotive Breath" by Jethro Tull if you could do the piano in that one...Tupper would be kickin' ass if we had somebody to play lead flute. :lol:

I actually do know a flutist, so Tupper may have a mini-band in his future.

MrsTrucker: UMMM.. I hate to break up the teaching Tup to be a music connoisseur, but Tupper is 100% deaf. On the positive side, he's eating more and seems to be more active!! :D
