    When does Stanford come out?

    Decisions start releasing same as today, but not immediately. You just have to wait on the e-mail.

    Got rejected by Duke and Berkeley... Though I have UChicago, Stanford has always been my No.1 Dream School :x

    @chemicaholic Uchicago is the perfect school. I would die to be taken off the wait list. So even if Stanford doesn't work... Please be somewhat happy :)

    Legacy at Stanford, accepted to Yale and Columbia, but rejected by Cornell, Penn, and Dartmouth. I just got my acceptance packet for Haverford, so Stanford is the last school I'll here back from. I honestly have zero expectations -- I had none yesterday, which made the acceptances so much better.

    Acceptance rate is <5% apparently because of increase in number of applicants. I've basically already been denied.
  • yangmasteryangmaster Registered User Posts: 462 Member
    @davelee1054: I think it's safe to assume that in order to mitigate any disappointment.

    Duke was the school of my dreams...rejected. I have never been so crushed in my life. Stanford is the last team i have remaining. For all things holy, Stanford, please do not nullify my last four years of work. My backup right now is northwestern, but I want to get out of the Midwest sooooooooooooo bad!
  • yangmasteryangmaster Registered User Posts: 462 Member
    @midwedward: You should be glad that you have the opportunity to attend Northwestern. It certainly deserves to be considered as more than a "backup."
  • midwedwardmidwedward Registered User Posts: 8 New Member
    I know, but I visited there, and I did not feel like it clicked. I understand that it is prestigious, and my hurt pride is probably overriding my thoughts right now. I just wanted Duke so bad, because I thought I had a good shot at it, as opposed to Harvard, Princeton, and here, where I am just hoping to get lucky. I honestly laughed at my Princeton and Harvard letters, no sweat, but the Duke rejection crushed me.

    I know the anxiety level is high but just know that the colleges you all are mentioning that you got accepted to are all amazing schools. After any initial hut dissipates, you all will hopefully be thrilled with wherever it is you enroll and not look back with any regret or disappointment. As one said earlier, Stanford is an amazing place but less than 1 in 20 will get accepted today as I think it will come in just under 5%. Many more apps, over 42,000 in total and the best of the best. From reading this blog site, you all are amazing young people so be happy with the incredible places you are getting the good news from.
    All that said, I hope you hear the news you are looking for today.

    Arrgh... typos....initial hurt, not hut. See, I am the one who should be denied admission :)
