Still working at it. No matter what happens, this will be my last one. Good luck to everyone!
11/24 -- Got up this morning, pulled up the status checker and saw that they made a decision. Checked back at lunch and I'm in at W&M!! My first acceptance! This takes a lot of pressure off.
12/1 -- Personal email from the admissions office. In at UB with a full ride!
12/8 -- Dinged at Georgetown via email. For proper record keeping, my status changed to Decision Rendered on 12/1.
12/10 -- In at Maryland via snail mail but with a large envelope. Went to Decision on 12/4.
12/16 -- Dinged at UVA. I saw it coming. But for a stock email, it sounded very sincere.
12/24 -- Sigh... Big D at Cornell. But hey, it's a lot better than what COULD'VE happened.
1/15 -- I sent Cornell a LOCI and an additional LOR. Also, I got an email from Harvard. I'm on hold. Off to writing another LOCI...
2/3 -- Held at Northwestern via email. I could write a book on LOCI's at this point.
2/10 -- Waitlisted at Chicago via email. I don't even have to say it. You know what's coming next.
2/26 -- Waitlisted at Michigan via email. Staying positive. I've gotten into two pretty good schools so far. As far as I'm concerned, I'm all good.
3/13 -- Out at Columbia via tiny snail mail envelope. Like I said before, I'm still in the running at schools where I was certain I had no chance. For all intents and purposes, things are still looking good for me.
4/12 -- After my interview, Maryland offered me a nice scholarship. So unless I hear back from the two Ivy's, I'll be heading to Baltimore in the Fall.
4/22 -- Another one bites the dust... Coincidentally, I learned I'm still in the running at Cornell. Bittersweet day.
4/29 -- WL'd at Northwestern. Still waiting on Cornell.
5/26 -- With the final seat deposit due in less than a week, I'm kissing my Ivy League ambitions goodbye. Maryland, here I come!
