    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!

    I figured that you only get one time to dream so I applied to many schools that had really good EE programs in the hope it would work out. My family does not have any $$ to send me to school. So i tired to apply to schools which had great financial aid or would have gotten be a tuition break cuz Im a NYer. So I sent out/requested fee waivers and then left the rest to the admission office.

    I was shocked to say the least. But I worked my ass off and i feel good that my parents dont have to worry about a bill esp. with other children coming up. I actually thought I was gonna go to a CUNy City before I got the other acceptance letters.But I will be at MIT at the end of the summer. I feel blessed
