Hamilton on public radio

<p>Today there was a call-in show on public radio, where listeners reported on being turned down by colleges. One woman called in to say she received a letter from Colgate that began "Congratulations!", which actually turned out to be a rejection letter. She attended Hamilton instead & said that, in retrospect, it was the best thing that could have happened to her!</p>

<p>And my d, who was accepted by Hamilton but can't attend due to financial concerns, has been waiting until the final moment to choose a college - hoping against hope that Hamilton would realize what a wonderful opportunity they were losing, and give her some merit money. Sigh. At least this will be over in 3 days, and we can get on with our lives. Hopefully she will learn to love #2!</p>
