Day of College Admissions Results...

Judgement Day is December 15th for most of us, which is, unfortunately, a Saturday this year. I know I'm not going to be able to focus on anything that day, if I can even make it to that day without going crazy.

So what are you guys doing that day? Drunken paddleboating? Skydiving? I'm thinking of getting together with the other Ivy-hopefuls from my school to make it through the day. Any suggestions on how to make the day bearable would be extremely appreciated, as well as how to cope with a deferral/decline. We live in the metro DC region if that helps!

    Gosh, we still have 35 more days to wait. Just today I started getting really impatient. I've been stuck on CC for the past 2 hours and now I have such a head ache.

    Doesn't sound like a good idea. What happens when some of you get in and some of you don't?

    I think most early notifications tend to happen a bit earlier than the Dec. 15 deadline... Last year, Penn and Brown both released decisions on Dec. 9th at 5PM and 3PM EST respectively.

    "Doesn't sound like a good idea. What happens when some of you get in and some of you don't?"

    Sorry I don't know how to get the quote box.

    It's inevitable that some of us will get in and some (actually probably most, realistically speaking) of us won't. But I think we're all mature enough that we can handle whatever the results are. I'm assuming that I won't get in (not that I have low self-esteem--just don't want to get my hopes up), so I would like to have someone to cry together with if the rejection comes.

    University of Chicago gave out EA decisions earlier than their official date of 12/15 last year. Just saying, you can start stressing and hitting refresh every 10 seconds about a week earlier. :) Seriously, if you look through the forums for whatever school you are interested in out here on College Confidential, you should be able to see when ED or EA results started to show up last year. Giving you a clue regarding when to start looking this year...

    I love how no one directly answered the question. On December 15, I will be bungee jumping. There's a good idea. Also, a good thing to do before admission decisions come out is watch the Old Spice commercials over and over until your confidence skyrockets and you don't care where you get in, because anything is possible if your man smells like Old Spice.

    I'm going to go out and ride my horse... calms me down and centers me. Then I'll check! But I bet mine will come out before the 15th... that's been the pattern.

    Doing whatever else I would plan on doing that day regardless, while holding my breath and intermittently refreshing my Internet browser anxiously.

    I am planning on living my normal daily life because I really have no idea when the decision will come. Last year Stanford was Dec. 9, but with the hurricane some things got delayed so it could be as late as the 14th this year. When I see the email, I am going to do everything in my power to get home ASAP and open it alone in my room. I will probably cry either way so I want privacy. Heh.
