I got rejected from 16 schools, apparently they were all reaches, I think I did a very good job. I know I am not a genius and I know there are people who got better prepared. For a regular human my stats are really good, not to mention my awesome Ec's.
I think my major mistake was sending the score of my first SATI sit. The second was asking for Financial Aid.
I don't feel happy, excited, proud or anything positive, in fact I felt like crap yesterday and today I feel better still alittle angry but I am trying to get over it. But yet Im not thrilled, my first reaction was Am I such a bad applicant? 16 years for this?.....Am I that stupid?
But after seeing the odds, I shouldve started with a more real prediction, a little under-estimation. Lets face it, we are all strong applicants, with great things to offer and with a wonderful past. Too bad we got rejected. But just take a lot at stats, HOW MANY PEOPLE APPLIED THIS YEAR! wow too many! record!
If you got rejected, post here and if possible share what you think put you in disadvantage. This way we won't feel alienated for being rejected, a lot of people got rejected and a lot of people got rejected everywhere, dont feel bad, It wasnt you.
