Did Anyone Cry?

    I didn't exactly cry, but I did tear up when I saw my decisions for UCSD and UCLA. Pretty sad stuff, but I'm over it now.....I think.

    I damn near cried from the Ivy acceptance rates, and I'm not applying until next year!

    Well I cried when I got my Lehigh decision. But not just because of the decision. The financial aid package that they gave me was AMAZING. It was like... wow... I actually can afford to go to college and wont be completely in debt when I leave. I had thought that I would have huge loans after seeing my other financial aid packages from other schools. But then I got Lehigh and it seemed like a billion doors just opened. It was amazing.

    But then on the flip side. I cried when I got my Yale decision for a whole different reason... rejection. Not that I had ever expected to get in...
    It was just a dream/obsesion that I had for 4 years crushed.

    Thank god for Lehigh.

    I cried uncontrollably....felt like a failure and all dreams were lost...but felt better the next day because at least i tried my best...Had all the qualifications but wasn't offered a seat..Now I realize that my first choice wasn't in my best interest...they offered me another seat into another of their programs and they sent me their financial aid award package and it was horrible

    I was sad when i didnt get into Princeton but i had jsut applied there for the sake of applying to an Ivy. Got into my real first choice and they gave me good fin aid. So ill be off to Cal next year

    Good Luck to everyone!

    I must be emotionless. Didn't really get mad or sad when I got rejected from Northwestern...or happy when I got into UW honors. Hmmmm.

    I got sad because I knew I wouldn't be there in Fall. So I mindlessly watched Law and Order for three hours. Then, I realized I can still go. I'm still on that cheerful swing.
