Enjoy.

I agree with Carolyn. The sense of entitlement that some people have, the sense that the world owes them something special, is something that rankles.

Bostonianchick- no, i think we still have a chance of getting in. where are you from? i'm assuming i havn't recieved a decision yet because i live in california.

rejected from bu and wait listed at emerson. egh. it's okay.

Sorry about the wait list at Emerson - that must be annoying. USNWR lists that they admitted 13 out of 305 waitlisted applicants last year, so while it is a long shot, it is something you could consider. I guess being wait listed is just part of the delightful process of college applications! One of our younger programmers is still mad that CMU waitlisted him, and that was six years ago.

Weener,
Good luck! I'm thinking about you today and hoping you get happy news...but you already have some terrific choices so don't sweat the results too much...but do let us know what happens.
Good luck again.

have you (or anyone) heard from bard yet? its driving me crazy (the last of ten schools I have to hear from, and I'm three, three, and three...)

good luck

Oh, darn. Well, I'm glad that you have a variety of options to choose from. Are use still leaning toward Goucher? Or is Lake Forest more appealing. Have you visited everywhere?

By Weener (Weener) on Wednesday, April 07, 2004 - 01:56 am: Edit

i'm leaning more towards goucher and i plan to visit next week. does anyone know anything about goucher?

By Bxian (Bxian) on Friday, April 09, 2004 - 04:28 pm: Edit

weener-there is a recent thread somewhere (parent boad I think) where a parent posted a Goucher trip report. if you search Goucher in the parent forum you may find it.
