    2 waitlists. 4 acceptances. 3 rejections.

    Honestly, the whole application process is so bizarre. Waitlisted by safeties, rejected by matches, accepted by a range of schools. Of course my top two rejected me and my number three waitlisted me but hey... number four isn't too bad... out of nine... :\ bummer.

    A lot of you are pretty dense for being "so smart"

    (see post #29, #22)

    There are plenty of places to boast about your zero-rejections. A post entitled "how many rejections have you received?" with people talking about all their rejections... *probably* not the place.

    3 reaches. rejected at Penn, waitlisted at JHU, and almost certainly rejected at USC. Thank goodness I have 2 solid matches to fall back on (+ 3 others). No regrets though. :)

    4 rejections, 4 waitlist, 11 acceptances.

    The latter was due to my parents wanting me to apply to certain schools. Almost half of my acceptances were due to the pressure from my parents...even though personal "fit", for them, was not a factor. They threatened, so I caved.

    Also, about half of the rejections/waitlist were also due to my parentals. Life definately would have been simpler had they left me to my own devices. Would have cut applications to about 9-10. And, the pattern would have been a bit more normal.

    4 acceptances, 8 waitlists (!)(LOL), 5 rejections.
    For awhile there it was waitlist after waitlist - it seemed like I was being waitlisted at every college in the world. The rejections were all from ivies.. more or less expected, hahah.
