Claiming an additional Columbia rejection. I can't say I'm not a bit bummed, but at least they did not delay rejections. I can also claim acceptances at the University of Tennessee and the University of Alabama, both of which are funded offers. I'm still holding out for UIUC, Maryland, and JHU as well as a few master's programs I applied to for the sake of opportunity diversity.
Congratulations to everyone who has received good news this week! For those of you that struck out, I'm certain you will find success; don't give up.
