Thank you so so much!! It will be a difficult decision and I definitely have some visits to do, but I am so grateful that I have these options. Amherst (I think you said you will be committing there?) is such an amazing school and is so lucky to have you! I wish you the best during your time there :blue_heart:

I very much appreciate it! I am leaning toward Amherst, though I haven’t committed yet! Still considering a few others, but as of now it’s the top! And any school that you end up going to is incredibly lucky as well :smiley:

Denied:
Yale

Given the record-breaking competitiveness this year for virtually every college I applied to, I am extremely surprised and pleased with the results! Perhaps things would have been different in a more “normal” year, but I am deciding not to go there in my mind :slight_smile:

As of now, I am deciding between Amherst, Vassar, Colby, and Middlebury. I am leaning toward Amherst, with Vassar being the other one I’m really looking into. I went through this whole process asking the universe to allow me to go to the place that’s best for me out of my list, and I believe Amherst might be it. Even though it doesn’t have the “Ivy League” or similarly global name brand, its academic and social qualities seem to match, or perhaps even exceed, those schools for an undergraduate student. Plus, who would complain about going to the theoretically second best LAC in the country (not that rankings are that indicative of anything)? Not I!
