    @SmartJarhead I also applied to BC, Dartmouth, Duke, Georgetown, Middlebury, Northwestern, Penn, Tufts, and WashU-- a long list of schools I'm probably not going to get into but I had to try haha. My fingers are crossed for this week!! It feels like we've been waiting forever.

    @avocadough Nice that's a great selection, I applied to many of those as well. Northwestern was my first rejection lol.

    @SmartJarhead Aw I'm so sorry! It's Northwestern's loss :( I haven't heard back from them yet but was rejected last year when I applied as a senior so I feel you :( Hopefully these upcoming decisions will be more promising!

    @FutureIbanker/hfmanager @SmartJarhead I guess, as they say in High School Musical, "we're all in this together" haha. The wait is so nerve-wracking!

    I applied to Brown, Middlebury, Oberlin, and Vassar. Got into Oberlin already, still waiting on the rest.

    I'm a theatre kid, I'd be going to a BFA if I could but they never even let transfers apply (I'm at a BA now, they promised it was BFA quality training but it was not... plus the school sucked in every other way, especially academics) :( I tried to find BAs with great programs that are also decent schools, hoping for Brown or Vassar. I may double major in physics, since I'll have the opportunity to I guess.

    @avocadough It's alright I kind of applied there on a whim and wasn't too invested. I also don't expect to get into any of the Ivy's so I'm not taking the rejections personally. If I get in I'll be super happy and grateful, if I don't then at least I tried and I'll go somewhere else :)

    @SmartJarhead that is true, and Cal isn't a bad option at all!! That is still awesome! I hope we both get into Brown too, but unfortunately I am getting way too impatient!! I need to hold out before I just go with UCLA!

    @transferunkown I know its so tempting to submit the SIR and start making plans, especially with everyone else at school doing that. Everyones asking everyone where they're going every 5 minutes and I'm like "I don't know yet". Making me so much more impatient.

    @SmartJarhead I so feel that. I made it no secret that I was transferring and people have been asking where I'm going since October. One can only grit their teeth and say "I don't get acceptances 'til May" so many times...

    @SmartJarhead Muhlenberg. Tiny LAC in PA that lied about a whole lot of stuff to attract students (mostly related to a theatre program that they toted as one of the best in the country), now something like 15% of the freshman class is trying to transfer.

    @DropOfSun @SmartJarhead I FEEL THE SAME WAY! I got a huge cold sore from being so stressed lol.. like you said, it doesn't help when everyone is making their decisions and asking me about mine! After being accepted to UCLA with such great aid I just want to plan who my roommate will be, if I'm bringing my car, where I'll be living, etc.. But then I remember I have so many other schools I am still waiting on! Glad some other people feel this pain :')

    will brown announce the decision date prior? or will they suddenly email us the decision is ready like previous years?

    The year my daughter applied to transfer to Brown, they forgot all about her. Decisions came out and everyone got one but her. When she reminded them that she had paid an app fee and submitted all the materials, they then started looking for her app. Not a surprise...they didn't even know she had applied...no.

    Not lovin' or feelin' Brown. They're either so disorganized, so incompetent or both.

    @preppedparent Wow, sorry to hear that.

    Is your daughter, by chance, Asian? I had a friend tell me she felt Brown didn’t care about her because she’s Asian.

    @SmartJarhead I'm in a pretty similar situation to you (veteran applying to Brown), did you attend the Warrior Scholar Project or anything similar?
