    I didn't cry, although I've been doing a little bit of moping. I'm trying to keep positive and focus on the places I did get in and want to attend.

    I bawled when I was deferred EA from MIT in December. Since then, I learned that, though MIT was my first choice, I would honestly be very happy -- and very proud -- to be an undergrad in many of the other schools to which I applied. When I was ultimately rejected from MIT two weeks ago, I started crying and then sort of... stopped rather quickly. I realized that I was crying because I had been expecting myself to be devastated from the rejection, and any tears that appeared that day were more due to expectations than real pain. I laughed myself silly afterwards.

    So this is weird, but I sort of cried right BEFORE I looked at the thing online for Brown, because .. I mean, obviously I was going to be rejected. I just didn't want to see it there, you know, on the screen, just sort of .. there. Being reject-y. I dunno.
    So, I guess the answer's yes.

    I cried when I got rejected from Vassar. I had just spent five hours on campus, touring the school and talking to students when my dad called and said "You got a letter from Vassar - do you want to know the size of the envelope?".

    It was small, of course.

    I was more depressed that I had spent that time on campus, falling in love with Vassar than I was troubled by the rejection itself. It was only for a minute or two, and then I was fine.

    I cried when I got into Harvard. I was so overwhelmed with emotions. Through tears and blubber, I told my mom, "Harvard must be crazy. Harvard must be crazy." xD I still think it is.

    My mother started crying when she stood behind me and saw I
    had been accepted to Princeton. Strange people - mothers - but
    I like her the way she is :p

    I almost felt like crying right after I got the results from the 5 Ivy League colleges I applied.

    Luckily, Brown waitlisted me. Also, Stanford waitlisted me.

    I didn't cry but I was just saying F word continously to myself...

    I am really disappointed to myself...

    f....

    Oh, yes. I'm trying to transition out of that phase too. But it feels nice to curse the world at the moment.
