    General Comments: Please ignore the previous comment, I accidentally submitted early. I was very surprised to get accepted at all, much less as early as I did. I didn't think I was multifaced enough to get into this program, but I'm glad I was wrong. I just hope this isn't the highlight of my application process! To anyone waiting on their decision, remember they don't release most decisions until the new year, so don't worry if you haven't gotten anything yet!
