Ok, so decision-day is tomorrow and I'm terrified of getting rejected by all of the 7 remaining Ivy League schools I applied to (already got rejected from Stanford, Yale SCEA, MIT, and UChicago). In the event that this happens, would I be able to take a gap year off an reapply next year?

    I mean I guess I have solid stats and credentials, but all these rejections have terrified me tremendously

    >.< Your life won't be over if you don't go to the school that you think is the most perfect one for you. Maybe University of Florida will have what you really need in a college experience, and you can get just as much out of it as an Ivy League school. Remember, your undergrad experience will be what you make of it.

    I'd say just go with University of Florida. It's not a bad school by any stretch of the imagination. I've already committed to a local university's flagship (CUNY Macaulay), and while I am not exactly thrilled, I know that I have 4 years to have the best experience possible.
