Congrats to everyone who heard from OSU and Minnesota...
I thought I'd check this out to see how this year is going for people. A year ago this time I was ripping my hair out, with regular intake of dark chocolate, beer, coffee, herb, and silvery Oregon rain.
I notice a lot of you are freaking out about UMass. Last year I received an acceptance from them in late Feb., so think late Feb./early March unless you're the genius fellowship whiz.
I got my rejections to Brown, Cornell, Iowa, U of Washington, and Stegner all in early to mid-March, and I got my acceptance from Hopkins on March 11th, I think, the only day there was snow on the ground in Portland last year.
I also got an acceptance to Emerson I think in early Feb.-- sounds like they are notifying people right now.
Yeah, I know, another month of waiting. It's excruciating. Just because some people are hearing now doesn't mean your dream school isn't secretly courting you for a few months down the road. I was all geared up to go to UMass but then Hopkins was fooled enough by my act to take me in. It was the one school I was absolutely positive I wouldn't get into-- perhaps a sort of reverse intuition?
