    although its wondeful to hear about all these ivy acceptances, may I please remind you this is a site for rejections only and only for those like myself who want to feel sorry for themselves, dwell on it, comiserate with others just like ourselves, not the harvard bound crimson wearing jubilants that just got word that they "only got into Harvard", i feel so bad for you. I am saying most of this in jest but seriously guys, don't come here if you got like into every school you applied to, are the top of your class, inventing a cure for cancer, developing a long term peace plan for the middle east and planning to run for president at 21, this is for us real folk who really want to sort dwell in our misery at least for 24 hours then put on a smiley face, face the world and make some decisions about where we CAN go. You know I am playing with you.

    But all you harvard bound lucky dogs, I always thought if someone went to Harvard, had a REALLY hard time making it, wouldn't this be a great idea for a book about your experience:


    Would it pique your interest? Got this idea when my two yes TWO cousins got in, but of course they are loving it and of course doing outstanding work! Good luck! And pardon my sarcasim, believe me, its said with the best of intentions!!

    2 waitlists. 4 acceptances. 3 rejections.

    Honestly, the whole application process is so bizarre. Waitlisted by safeties, rejected by matches, accepted by a range of schools. Of course my top two rejected me and my number three waitlisted me but hey... number four isn't too bad... out of nine... :\ bummer.

    A lot of you are pretty dense for being "so smart"

    (see post #29, #22)

    There are plenty of places to boast about your zero-rejections. A post entitled "how many rejections have you received?" with people talking about all their rejections... *probably* not the place.
