Though this may be quite a bit early - I thought I would start (or at least try to) the customary freakout thread. Started ages ago by a brilliant BS applicant/parent and with the tradition carried on by @minimalist
last year, I hoped it was time to pass the torch.
Some info: this is the thread where people can discuss their concerns, excitements, questions, etc. In past years, these threads have been communal and kindhearted ones that I can personally attest have been so helpful.
To all Senior Members, sorry if this is started too early, just very eager and assumed the application process was in full swing ;)
