hi folks. for i guess mostly those who will peruse this board in the future (not that any sense is to be gleaned), here is my tally at the end of this crazy race:
Final Tally - Off to Oregon...
[In reply to]
Waitlisted @ Michigan (e-mail 2/19) & Sarah Lawrence (letter 3/7)
Accepted @ Oregon (phone 3/6) & Washington (e-mail 3/17)
Rejected from (deep breath): Cornell (letter 2/12), Wash U St. Louis (letter 2/12), Wisconsin (letter around 2/20?), Iowa (letter 3/3), UMass Amherst (letter 3/3), Minnesota (letter 3/6), Syracuse (Letter 3/15 or so?), Brown (letter 3/11), UVA (e-mailed and ask about it yesterday)
i will be in eugene in the fall. for those wondering why i'm not waiting: i found out i was low enough on michigan's wait list, and no way that many people are going to say no to michigan. i'm ready to be done and to get excited.
so, this will open up a spot at washington, to those waiting!
(and digression to completely document--i'm on a roll--last year i applied to UVA (wait listed), Michigan (wait listed), Minnesota (rejected), UMass (rejected), and Oregon (rejected). so no giving up!
perhaps this is me signing off (who am i kidding, really--i'm a quiet addict)? if anyone is going to oregon (i got you jayg), let me know!
thanks to everyone who posted, perfect strangers quelling and heightening anxieties and making us all feel like we're not quite insane.
good luck & best wishes to all!
