    I'd like to announce that I have a very low college self-esteem...

    A&M-Accept-Accept
    Rutgers-Accept-Accept
    UT Austin-Accept-Summer Freshman
    Johns Hopkins-Reject-Accept
    Cornell-Accept-Accept

    I only knew accept for Cornell b/c they sent me a likely letter. Goobers. If not for that a couple weeks before the decision, I would've put down reject.
    Two surprises there.
