anyone else here get deferred (or rejected) ED and now they're actually glad about it?
i got deferred from my 1st choice school ED and was really upset. but i visited NYU again this past weekend and loved everything about it. now i'm glad i didn't get into the other school because i'm realizing that, although i still love it, maybe my 1st choice really wasn't the best place for me.
i guess everything happens for a reason.

what was your 1st choice school, if you don't mind my asking?

Nope, but I definitely agree with the sentiments "everything happens for a reason."
I just wish the Powers That Be would stop screwing with my head and show me this elusive "reason" they're apparently leading me to. I don't get it. :P
Glad it's working out for you, though, Lindz.

I think that I grew so attached to my first choice school which admittedly was a reach school (as Yale is for 90% of the country, lol..11% acceptance rate) that I became less attracted to my other schools. So not being accepted by my EA schools forced me to realize all the good things that my other schools have to offer.
So, goodluck to you Lindz and maybe you will get in during regular and have several good schools to choose from.

Well I'll tell you this...I'm less addicted to my EA school now that I've been admitted. I still like it a lot and probably will attend, but I think the craze of the admissions process makes you become totally mesmerized by a school just at the thought of "getting in," and a lot of the times you don't think about the school enough.
This is one reason why I think binding early decision is so horrible...students get all in a frenzy about "getting in" somewhere (as I admittedly did) and soon enough they have gotten in to a school they HAVE TO ATTEND without actually having thought about what the best place is for them.

Exactly...I know many people who were probably more pissed about not being able to know where their going in December then being rejected from the school.
