To an Acceptance?

AND

To a Rejection?

Mine:
For Acceptance-
1)yell really loudly and call people
2) buy a stanford jacket/sweatshirt and when it arrives dance around like a manic with all dignity forgotten.

For Rejection-
1)yell really loudly and not call people
2) buy a stanford jacket/sweatshirt and when it arrives, go and huddle into a small corner with it....................................yeaaaaaaaaaaahhhh

So, my fellow future victims of the Stanford Slaughter Part 2, what will your reaction be?

    If accepted:
    1) Not tell anyone and appear calm. There would be a discussion amongst my friends in school about college decisions, and then I'd break it to them in the middle of some silence. Haha, I'd appear such an a**hole that way.

    If rejected:
    1) Used to it. I lose in many things I do by just a hair.

    1. Accepted: I'd refuse to believe that I had been accepted and probably call Stanford to make sure it wasn't a mistake.
    2. Rejected: I'd be sad, but I would get over it.

    When I got in I screamed to my dad like I had just cut my leg off. If I didn't get in I was planning on burning down trees. Lots and lots of trees.

    Accepted: I wrote on CC several days ago that i'd run 5 miles everyday for the next five years of my life lol... and i'm not much a runner anymore. So that says something about the chances of this happening :)

    Rejected: Get on with life. At least I'll know that one part of my heart has died. I'll be glad to finally move on.

    Accepted!: Grab my Stanford sweatshirt, run around the street (chanting and perhaps without pants), and call Adrienne Keene (this liaison to Native applicants with whom I've been talking) and thank her so much, the phone call may be followed up with an e-mail. Go to Admit Weekend (just because my parents want me to actually see the school) and talk about how great it is and start filling out the enrollment forms! Then begin an impromptu powwow with my family and neighbors.

    I don't even want to think about rejection. haha.

    Accepted: This won't happen. At all. Never in a million years. Never ever ever ever. EVER. Even after pigs learn to fly. In the remotest chance of remotest chances that acceptance, I'll hit my head against the wall to make sure that I'm sober and awake. If I don't awake from my dream, I'll start crying out of sadness for the 28,000 other people who deserved my acceptance. Wait, it won't happen. Did I mention that already?

    Rejected: YAY! I get a letter from Stanford. Soooo cool. I'll give it a nice shiny frame too and show it to my kids proudly when I'm older. Yep. Because at least I tried.

    ^, if you truly believed that it won't happen "in a million years", then you wouldn't have applied :P

    haha, nice blueducky, I found Michigan's post a bit repetitive to be honest. We get that you are not trying to get your hopes up, but do you really have to write an entire paragraph confirming this notion in your mind?

    Yup, dpattzlover, i agree :)

    I know poeple just say "i won't get in" all the time even when they desperately want to get in and they cherish that small piece of hope that they might. Oh man. I think we're just too old to keep lying to ourselves.

    OMG WHO HERE APPLIED TO RICE?!

    I GOT A LIKELY TODAY!!!
