@kgkendall: I'm right outside Atlanta, not really rural. So maybe I will find out before you... I'll post if I get mine first!
it's so cool "seeing" the letters progress outward from Carleton... I keep picturing where my letter is in the mail right now. Kinda scary :P
@TheRealSunshine: I saw your post and thought I'd reply before my letter comes so it's not charged one way or the other: I'm so sorry! I'm sure you had as much of a shot as anyone, but sometimes the coin flip doesn't go the right way.
I'm sure there are other schools that want you, and you'll get a wonderful education anywhere you go. Go make Carleton jealous
To everyone that did get in, congrats!
And to my fellow fingers-crossed-waiting-by-the-mail people, we're all in the same boat and good luck to everyone!
