    2 Rejections (Dartmouth-my top choice :(, and Tufts)
    1 Waitlist (Reed)
    3 Acceptances (Williams-my second choice :), Brandeis and Lehigh)

    I definitely wasn't surprised at the Dartmouth one. But some I found odd, because I got multiple predictions that looked something like this:
    Safe match: Reed and Lehigh
    Match: Brandeis, Tufts
    Reach: Williams, Dartmouth

    I think they put all the applications in a wind tunnel and those they pull out are accepted. XD Well, congrats to acceptances and my heartfelt sympathy to rejections (and waitlists). Hopefully, you'll all like the school you choose.

    8 Accepted: Penn, Brown, Duke, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Vanderbilt (full tuition, thankfully), Miami (OH), Ohio State

    1 waitlist: WUSTL

    I thought my Brown app was a sure fire rejection. I am very happy and thankful, but now I have some difficult decisions.

    To OSUforMe: Why would you post your 8 acceptances on a rejection site?

    Are you that coldhearted??? I purposely left out where i was accepted out of kindness for the point of this thread.

    What were you thinking?!?

    *kicks OSUforMe out of thread*

    I got 10 rejections. I am expected 3 more this upcoming week.
    1 waitlist, and 5 acceptances. All but one (UCSD) being my safety schools. I think I'm going to be going to UCSD... :x
    It's been a harsh week for me.
