Did Anyone Cry?

Well now that admissions is over, i was just wondering...did anyone cry when they saw their decision? Be it from joy or anger what schools made your emotions run high? I'll start. I cried when I saw my Georgetown decision; I thought I was a shoe-in...but I've gotten over that, lol. Anyone else?

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

    I am really disappointed to myself...

    I went with one big "uggggggggggggh!" and then remembered I liked my 2nd choice school just fine.

    I cried. Rejected at Columbia. :[
    It was just that, after I actually visited the school, I totally fell in love. Too bad I completely threw away that application.

    But yeah. Completely cried. Now I'll probably end up stuck here. Living at home. Going to Berkeley. Not that it isn't a good school. I just never thought of it as for me.

    I cried when I was waitlisted at Colgate because I took that as a precursor to getting rejected from my dream school, Notre Dame. And then I cried again (of happiness) when I got into ND. (ok none of this was that annoying sobbing, multitudes of liquid coming from the face, just a little tear that gets wiped away immediately)

    I am not an easy crier; in fact, I honestly can't remember the last time I cried before this.

    I didn't cry either... just that horrendous feeling in your stomach of disappointment, followed by a tad bit of resentment.

    I cried when I was rejected by my #1 choice. Not for any other schools, no.

    I cried when I didn't get the part I was born to play in the spring musical.

    But when I saw rejections form Tufts and Brown? More like, "oh thank God it's over and I can just be done with it!"

    "oh thank God it's over and I can just be done with it!"

    Exactly. I'm so happy the whole process is over.

    It was strange getting Ivies today, even if they were all rejections. It was more of a - okay, I'm going to NYU now - kind of settlement. Then I realized I was still waitlisted at UChicago and Northwestern then my insides kinda went: "Oh, wait, it's not over."

    I didn't cry, but I just sat there with my mouth wide open ready to yell when I saw my Dartmouth decision.

    Today was a good day.

    I'm really lame, just throwing that out there, now I can continue:

    So I was driving to Houston for my birthday after I found out I'd been accepted by Hopkins.

    And on my iPod, "When You Believe" came on, from the Prince of Egypt, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston,

    goes like:
    There can be miracles, when you believe.
    Though hope is frail, it's heard to kill.
    Who knows what miracles, you can achieve?
    When you believe, somehow you will.

    I start BAWLING while I'm driving on 290.
    With tears of joy.
    I think I need a mental evaluation.
    But that's just me.

    I moped and cried when I got rejected from my first choice too. Afterwards you get use to hte rejections so the other ones don't hurt as much.
