    You should have put a "I like where I stand" choice. I don't really think I would have changed anything.

    my interview..
    I am sure that my extra curriculars and SAT and competetitveness of school make up for the mediocrity of my GPA... however, my interview was one that I will never forget. One stupid answer can break the interview, which sucks. However, I hope they saw my carelessness/bad joke as just that and not stupidity or immaturity.

    Still I would rather take it back and avoid the whole thing.. haha. definitely interview.

    i wish i applied to more top schools. basically all the schools i applied to are 1. safety or 2. i have a 50% chance of admissions and they are all within 2 ranks of each other for my major. i thought i would get in all of the safeties and get in 2 out of the 6 good schools i applied to, and i'd visit the two schools and it would be an easy choice because i would be really glad to get into a good school. i ended up getting into every damn school and wondered what if i applied to .... and every school had things i didn't like. this is the worst feeling i believe.
