    Thank you so much for that explanation, lonesplendor.

    I said "real college EXPERIENCE" not "real college." If Hunter is not REAL COLLEGE, I wouldn't apply there at first place -_-

    EDIT: ok, Ksar.. I see why you understood. Sorry for uncleared statement ;)

    Waitlisted: Johns Hopkins and Kenyon
    Rejected: None :D
    JHU was a reach for me and I wasn't too interested in Kenyon. I'm really happy with the schools I got into.

    MHC @ Hunter ): Yeah, my first choice. It stung.... still does. ):

    Johns Hopkins

    Echoing Tothesky, I'll brb tomorrow.

    Whatever. I guess this was a learning experience. With the exception of Macaulay Honors, there's no way I would have been able to afford the private schools I got rejected/waitlisted to.

    If anything, this'll motivate me to be a total machine and bust my a.s.s in college. I'll do my very, very best so I can avoid experiencing that awful sting of rejection in the future. I admit that getting into an ultra-selective high school must have inflated my ego a bit and somehow given me the illusion that I can have my cake and eat it too. That I could take it easy and still get what I want, college-wise.

    This has brought me back down to Earth. Fail. ):
