    Obviously I went into admissions not sure about my results. I thought I could get into the ????, but that it wouldn't be surprising if i didn't. Thought I had a shot. There were some real surprises.

    Thought I had a good chance at UNC, my #2 after Duke and I did not get in. Hopefully waitlist will work out for me.

    @ jsmall:
    Why do you think you were rejected at Northwestern and accepted at Brown?
    I only ask, because you predicted Northwestern, and I was wondering if you had a sense about it.
    Congrats on Brown, by the way!
