ahhh my poor class's decisions. everyone was at first being accepted (this was RD, sorry), and then it all went downhill. ED I remember everyone was rejected, but then some acceptances came through. Lots of deferrals...
I just got my GT application today!
With Cornell being on my mind right now,let me share something with you guys:
I have been applying to Cornell since September of 2007. I was deferred, and then ultimately given a guaranteed transfer offer. At first, I felt rejected and had to consider things for awhile. My major is not very common, and the school I am now is known to be in the top ranks of it. But I have a gut feeling that I am supposed to be at Cornell, so I decided to go through with the application. I worked really hard this semester, harder than I probably would have otherwised, and am aiming for a 4.0 this semester. If you are accepted, congratulations. If you are rejected, there is a better path for you! Even if you do not believe it yet. And if you are deferred, like myself, stay positive and keep hope. Take everything one day at a time and live the journey. If you are destined to be a Cornellian, you will get to Cornell one way or another (it just might not be as convenient as you hope). If not, there is another school out there for you! Don't listen to ranks or "ivy-league" crap, it's not about that. Honestly, I'm at a 3rd tier SUNY, and I love it. I just don't feel like I'm meant to be here. Go with your gut, and don't go nuts. It's just four years. A school's name does not get you a job. The experience you have, the people you meet, and the person you become at the school get you a job.
Best of luck to all of you!
