    4 rejections, 4 acceptances, 1 waitlist, 1 pending... decent balance i guess

    Amazing how people smart enough to get accepted into these schools can still be so dumb as to fail to understand the concept of "post rejections."

    I think it's downright disrespectful to these people who tried just as hard as you but didn't turn out so lucky in what is essentially a collegiate crapshoot.

    And that kid who said non-Wharton Penn wasn't a big deal...

    Wharton: 475 / 3938 = 12.1%
    College: 2,261 / 12,999 = 17.4%

    Yeah, huge difference...not. Don't come here with an attitude like that. Or perhaps come and have your mind changed?

    5 rejections in a row over just ONE night...the only time I pulled an all-nighter on Mar 30, hoping to get just a single acceptance to make up for it...and what did I get? A rejection at 3 AM, 2 rejections at 5 AM, 1 rejection from what-was-my-first-choice-and-dream-school at 6 AM (the lousy server was clogged). I got drunk and sobered up at 7 PM only to get the last rejection of the day in my mailbox.
    And life still goes on...

    4/9 = rejections. 2/9 = waitlist. 3/9 = acceptances.

    i am shocked to see how many schools you all applied to! who payed for all those application fees?

    anyways, back when i applied (last year) i got a very cold rejection from cornell, and a waitlist from northwestern.
  • IzzyJIzzyJ Registered User Posts: 3,271 Senior Member
    I only paid the fees for two of the schools. The others were free for online applications or international students or student (US citizens or int'ls) living overseas. :)

    2 rejections if u count early. and i like to think that the non-early one was because i lack common sense. oh well.
  • Tdaws55Tdaws55 Registered User Posts: 161 Junior Member
    3 rejects, 7 admits. I really didnt try in high school until it was too late. Oh well, rejects were Berkeley, Claremont Mckenna and PSU-UP (weird). Whatever, got into UCSD. It's a good school, and i guess im happy considering the amount of effort i put into hs.
