fear of getting deferred?

<p>Oy, there are 33 more days till 12/15, the day when our next four years will be decided.</p>

<p>Who isn't feeling anxious and insecure, if not pessimistic?</p>

<p>I am soooo ready for that deferred letter!</p>

<p>Then you might as well be prepared to wait for 5-6 months.</p>

<p>o it doesn't matter; deferred then rejected...so i lost all hope</p>

<p>staticsoliloquy...please don't be so pessimistic...u applied and tried your best...if u don't get in, realize that there's nothing else you could have done</p>

<p>I'm feeling all three. I'm already trying to prepare for the worst---> rejection.</p>

<p>oh well i dont know if'd call my attitude pessimistic. I think i'm just very indifferent to whatever the outcome will be.</p>

<p>It'd be great if I got in, and it'd also be awesome if I didn't. Life goes on, and I will still be happy! :)</p>

<p>I have a feeling i'd like to describe. I have thanksgiving break a week from tuesday, and that will come really fast because I have tons of major assignments (because teachers love to get tons in before the break). And breaks go by really fast (especially for boarding school kids) and then by the time I get back its early december.</p>

<p>What's weird for me is that it seems so far away and yet it's gonna happen all too fast for me--Either I'll get deferred/rejected and heck, I'll admit I'll be heart broken, but it'll be so sudden that I'll just mind my own business. Or in a rare case I'll get accepted, but I probably won't even appreciate it because it'll just blink by--probably won't even hit me until next fall.</p>

<p>oh well.</p>

<p>Good luck to all, we'll make it through this!</p>

<p>methinks professional counselling could make a fortune off us.</p>

<p>I'm confident. It's a buyer's market.</p>

<p>I'm just praying(and this is coming from a secular person) that they accept me off waitlist... Because I think that's all I can hope for... I will most likely be rejected this round... I believe it...</p>

<p>Ah, well. I just wont go to college... I'll travel the country, stealing rides on trains. And then I'll write about it. What? Kerouac did it.</p>

<p>not getting into harvard isn't the end of you life.</p>

<p>mzhang23 "not getting into harvard isn't the end of you life.</p>

<p>yeah, i gues then you have to settle for Princeton, huh? ;) </p>

<p>just playing.</p>

<p>i agreed. if i don't get into harvard, oh well. As long as you know that you can be successful with or without a certain college, in this case, Harvard, then you've learned an important lesson from this chaotic process.</p>

<p>Most applicants won't get in, and percentage-wise, folks from the waitlist are almost never admitted. Nonetheless, those 1000s of kids seem to survive just fine at other places. They are not depressed for the next 4 years, they often love their chosen school with a passion Harvard doesn't always provoke, and in many cases they come out far ahead financially.</p>

<p>Amen, PSedrishMD.</p>

<p>Lol, i think ill start my own college counseling business. I probably know more than my counselors, anyway. =)</p>

<p>but don't you guys feel that it's going to be hard to just forget a rejection...the very first one at that....it all sounds wonderful about how we should move on with life but isn't it easier said than done?</p>

<p>well, if i tried my absolute best all throughout highschool hoping that one day i'd get into Harvard, i'd probably be deeply depressed. however, this is not the case. i slacked off all throughout high school and never even thought about Harvard until a couple of months ago.</p>

<p>If I don't get into Harvard, it'll hurt, but I'll be okay.</p>

<p>If I don't get into HYPMSC though...</p>

<p>sorry.. what's the M for?</p>
