    Oh man. :( Good luck to all of you! Any coping strategies? I have to dress like an elf and sell food to people at school the whole week (I already know I'll be up until the wee hours of the morning making puppy chow every day...), and I'm sort of in charge of the variety show on Thursday and Friday. I'm glad it's a busy week, though, or I'd probably be a wreck come Tuesday night!




    Ok, I'll be a wreck no matter what's going on...if anyone wants a couple pounds of fudge or spritz, let me know. :P

    Good luck to you all!!
    My daughter is a senior this year, but I still remember those few days before acceptances were sent out. So exciting and completely nerve-racking!!
    Remember to breathe :)

    ah, i am so nervous!
    i am really torn as to whether or not i should check online on wednesday. on one hand i know the suspense will kill me, if even for a day or two. but i'm afraid of finding out i've been rejected ...and then having to get that rejection letter again in the mail the next day.
    at least i have school and work to keep me occupied and not thinking about it... :|

    Good luck to all who are waiting.

    Moodle, I've found that only the context changes, the waiting & stress are still the same. D is currently waiting to see if she gets a job offer that she wants very much. Two telephone interviews, interviews with six people in person, five references and four writing samples provided. I know that the last two references were problematic in terms of timing: one is normally flakey and is dealing with a family tragedy on top of it and the other is at a peak work period and was trying to figure out a time she could schedule the reference phone interview...apparently, they aren't short.

    *sigh* how well I remember waiting for my own ED letter, was that really three years ago? Damn, I'm getting old.

    Be grateful that you guys at least get to see the decision online. Even three years ago, I had to wait for my letter, and I had to wait until the end of the week for it to get to Seattle from Smith.

    Oh, my God!! Good Luck everyone! make sure you post as soon as the call/letter arrives. I'm applying RD, so hopefully I'll be waiting excitedly in a couple of months too!
