I'm crossing my fingers for you, kevin63138!! If there's anyone that deserves an invite to CW based on passion alone it'd probably be you. Perhaps Allison Bahme will drop by and add you to the CW list if you're not on it already!

I'm hoping hard for you:)

    I second that. We should all combine our psychic powers together to get him on the list.

    Aw thanks guys!! Nothing yet, so it's not looking good, but snow was pretty bad in St. Louis and stuff. I'm holding out for my "official" decision on Monday!

    Thanks for all your well wishes! :D

    Even though I also did not get the visit from Mr. UPS as I had hoped, I am rooting for you all out sir. I know not what other colleges you're aiming for, but I know you've been pretty faithful here about your desire to attend Olin.

    Good luck! I'll be rooting for both of us to defy the odds!

    Yes, I really hope that we both just didn't happen to receive it on Friday!

    I'm rooting for you too Kevin! If it was based on interest, Olin could only hope to have a candidate half as dedicated as you!

    Keep holding out, Kevin! All your activity in this forum demonstrates your amazing enthusiasm.
  • kevin63138kevin63138 Registered User Posts: 545 Member
    I just hope that enthusiasm came through on my application!

    Also, I know I said this elsewhere but I know I'm not the only one this super enthusiastic about Olin...I just happen to post here a lot about it on CC. xP

    But I really think I'll slip into deep depression when I find out on Monday!! AGH, I'm not good with dealing with rejection lol...My whole college life will consist of "What if Olin, what if..." AHHHHH...I know it's not looking good, but I'm still hoping for Monday...=/

    Tomorrow sir, you and I find out. I bet we'll know before 9, as the UPS would definitely arrive before then, and even the normal mail will probably have gotten in by then.

    Good luck! I'll be on here tomorrow night to congratulate you. And yes, I mean that, either way, because you are clearly a bright and motivated individual who will excel wherever you end up.

    Ditto to everyone else who has applied and is still holding out hope!

    As always, my fingers are crossed in the name of luck for all of us!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    But now I seriously can't stop thinking about it! I wish decisions would have been online earlier so this could just be off my mind! I keep visiting this forum, hoping someone received a UPS on the weekend (though they don't deliver on weekends) or that they accidentally put decisions online earlier than they said.

    I am seriously obsessing...and have been for the past year. I just want to go SO BAD!! AGH it's eating me up. Olin is so great! I know there are plenty of things worse than a rejection from Olin, but ugh still. AHHHHH I am being so unproductive...Spanish, chemistry, and rehearsing for the musical is all taking a backseat to my thoughts on Olin. (We're doing Schoolhouse Rock by the way).

    And wow, the "UPS Leader board" just came on the superbowl...:P
