Nervous wreck over here

<p>I am so nervous and apprehensive... 8.8 % daymn. It would be so amazing to get in... but the chances for anyone are slim (unless your last name is Bush). I just want to find out so I can stop agonizing, although I can imagine it's worse to have to wait till April to find out. I'll rip my hair out before then. I can't focus on school work at all- it's so bad. I am thinking about it way too much. I'm scared!!!!! Rejection from anything is so tough to handle. :eek:</p>

<p>Is anybody else really nervous?!?</p>

<p>Absolutely. I'm already counting down the days and keep checking the website for updates. </p>

<p>Also, I don't want to work on any other applications. :(</p>

<p>haha i'm almost done with the other 16! (someone doesn't expect to get in...)</p>

<p>Ritz, I feel the same way. It's been hard to concentrate on much of anything lately. All I'm thinking about is what is going to happen come December. I want this more than anything but its unsettling to know that its not in MY hands, but someone else's.</p>

<p>Having a nervous-wreck will not help anyone, you least of all. </p>

<p>You need to get some perspective - there are bigger problems in the world, and, I am sure, in your personal life, than getting admitted to Yale. Its not an end-of-the-world scenario in either case.</p>

<p>We never said it was the end of the world. We said we were nervous and anxious, which I think is totally normal and acceptable.</p>

<p>Or Kerry. =D</p>

<p>No, the original poster said she was in a nervous <em>wreck</em>. I don't think that's healthy! :)</p>

<p>I am Harvard EA too, and I am also worried, but "freaking out" won't do anything.</p>

<p>it's an expression for goodness sake! Please refer up to what lindsey said</p>

<p>Do what I did. Tell everyone that an inside source told you that you were rejected. If you get rejected, no biggie. If you get accepted then its all good. I am completely stress free.</p>

<p>You all have my sympathies and best wishes--I know how hard it is to wait.</p>

<p>But my heartfelt advice is to finish all your other applications now, even if you hold off on sending them (and paying the fees) until after you hear in December. My daughter waited on most of them until Yale's EA decisions were out--then got deferred, and had to struggle through other apps when her confidence was at an all-time low. (If you think it's hard to concentrate now, believe me, it's that much harder if you're feeling rejected.)</p>

<p>Good luck, and believe it or not, it will all work out in the end. My daughter got into Yale RD after all, and her friends ended up happy with their schools too, whether or not those schools were their initial first choice. :)</p>

<p>Guys, just remember that we're all in this together, we all have to wait, and we're all dying. Take solace in knowing you're not the only one suffering.</p>

<p>although i'm not a "yaley" i totally empathize with you guys... i feel exactly the same way.. nervous wreck.. im a wannabe columbian..
i couldnt help but feel touched by your posts ritz and lindsey..
i do the same thing.. i keep "tracking" my app when nothing changes.. and im obssessively on here too!
i dont wanna do nemore IB work.. or do my other apps, but guess we have to! :(</p>

<p>good luck to all ye yaleyysss! :) i wish you all the best!</p>

<p>That's "Yalies"... lol. It's ok though, you're a Columbia guy so we can let your "Yaley" slide.</p>

<p>tee hee, i'm a girl btw! but thats ok, ill let that slide ;) lol</p>

<p>haha I'm glad I touched you :) I've been trying to focus on other things lately... and my attention has turned to guys- go figure lol</p>

<p>I had the best dream last night- I got into Yale!!!!! I was so damn happy! too bad it was just a dream</p>

<p>Ah, I'm starting to have nightmares....
My teeth fell out in one of them.. and my friend tells me that dreams about falling out teeth mean that you're insecure..</p>

<p>Guess what I'm insecure about!!! not getting into columbia ED.</p>

<p>I'm applying to Yale RD (complete reach for me).. I know it's a crapshoot, but I just want to try..</p>

<p>My obssession for Columbia is not dying away (unfortunately)... I'm trying desperately to divert my attention to something else but it ain't working!</p>

<p>And it doesn't help that Singapore is GUYLESS! (i hope i dont get in trouble with anyone else from Singapore)</p>

<p>haha yeah theres not too many decent guys around here either. Yeah my obsession with Yale is getting stronger with each day. My dream made me feel so good- I just want it to happen. Besides wanting ot go there- it will make life so much easier: you know you're in somewhere, you don't need to worry about your other essays, you can start college shopping without feeling guilty, you can take it easy in school, and you're IN! one of my friends just got into some rolling schools and I;m so jealous- she's done with everything</p>

<p>I dream about Columbia every second of the day.. At the moment Columbia is my love lol.. No guy could ever be better at the moment.. :)</p>

<p>Damnit, can't we just get in?? I think judging by our obssession, they should just accept us - tee hee!</p>

<p>I reallly wishhhhhhh sooo much that Columbia was rolling admissions too!!! :( </p>

<p>I can't wait another monthhhh!!!!</p>

<p>And then what happens if its a deferral.. or even worse rejection.. Actually maybe deferral is worse..... we have to wait till April</p>

<p>If I get rejected.. that's 6 weeks in bed for me, and some serious trauma couselling and therapy</p>

<p>IN YOUR DREAMS. How many good schools actually do rolling?</p>
