How will you react to your decision?

<p>So guys...decision time is like in a week or so. I'm probably gonna die from a heart attack the day of. How will you guys celebrate (or mourn) if you get in/do not get in?
Also, will you share the news on Facebook? What will you put as your status?</p>

<p>For the entire day, I'm listening to a playlist devoted entirely to musical acts from the Chicago Area- Styx, Lupe Fiasco, Cheap Trick, Rage Against the Machine (not really Chicago, but they were from Illinois and honestly too good to not include), Kanye West, among others. </p>

<p>If I get in, My facebook status will read "University of Chicago. Class of 2017. Lets go." I will probably also not do any homework for the rest of the night. I'd also tweet something similar</p>

<p>If not, I'd probably tweet it, not facebook status it. I'd be sad. Huge understatement, but whatever, lets not think about that</p>

<p>@ASH5297 wouldn't it be class of 2016?</p>

<p>@nondairycreamer yes, it should be. Thanks for correcting that haha</p>

<p>Either way it goes, I will scream.</p>

<p>Cry. For what reason? Depends.</p>

<p>@ASHS: <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZi548saT1M%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZi548saT1M&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>i will be so nervous. oh my god.</p>

<p>Accepted: Make a post on Tumblr and then party.</p>

<p>Deferred/Denied: Drown my sorrows in low-fat frozen yogurt.</p>

<p>@ASH5297: you need some common too. I love Chicago music.</p>

<p>I figure my best bet is to stock party supplies. Then, I can quickly get ready for a bash if I get in, and drown my sorrows in the party snacks if I don't. Good plan?</p>

<p>I will explode, either with relief/happiness, or terrible depression and an overall feeling of failure that will likely last several weeks.</p>

<p>Depends on what day they're released.
Assuming it's on a day where I don't have dance (ahhh, wonderful company life!) I will go to the gym immediately following my decision for either a pump work out or a I need to drown my sorrows in running a treadmill work out. But these things will come first for an accept - Lots of crying and screaming and dancing and phone calls. And an all caps post to facebook and tumblr. I don't want to think about reject/deffered yet. I'll jump that hurdle when I get to it.</p>

<p>I haven't told anyone that it's my number one. I don't want to have other people be disappointed by my rejection. I'll be disappointed enough for everyone.
I've just spent this whole time expecting a rejection to minimize pain. So, I'll just listen to my 'Rejection hurts, chocolate doesn't.' playlist.</p>

<p>If accepted: Scream and cry. I would also have a LOT of phone calls to make!
If denied: Also cry, probably listening to "Someone Like You" (did anyone watch that episode of SNL?) Oddly enough, Chicago is the only school for which a rejection would devastate me.
Next week can't come fast enough!</p>

<p>keep me posted of the results. ill keep an eye on this thread:D</p>

<p>but definitely you guys have better chance of getting admitted than me...:(</p>

<p>Why a week? I thought it was supposed to be by the end of December.</p>

<p>I heard something about the 15th? Is that when they're releasing decisions?</p>

<p>Admitted: GOOO Crazy. not even kidding! I'll be so happy... post it as a status.
Rejected: ....keep doing other applications. I just got rejected from Columbia, so I'm not feeling good about this. I guess I'll hope to get in regular to my other schools</p>

<p>Accepted: Breathe.
Deferred: Breathe.
Rejected: Breathe.</p>

<p>^ well tbh id continue "breathing" even if i hadnt applied at all.:D</p>

<p>Accepted: cry with happiness while eating nutella
Rejected: cry with despair while eating nutella</p>
