From your mouth to God's ears! I appreciate the good wishes from all of you on here. Where are you headed, pertristis?
The short answer is nowhere. I asked GULC if they'd reinstate my scholarship. I got a thanks-but-no-thanks email from them yesterday. It also so happens that I received a how-about-you-apply-ED-next-year-and-we'll-be-happy-to-have-you phone call from UVa on Friday. That sealed it.
The longer answer is: if Penn/UVa/NYU don't admit me from the WL this year, I won't go anywhere. I'll be applying next cycle, either UVa ED, or a full T14 blitz (minus Yale, Stanford, Boalt, and Duke).
EB, I've been pulling for you all cycle. A long time ago, I sent you a TLS email, since we had nearly identical numbers. I'm still hoping you get into somewhere great.
