YOU GUYS!!!  I've just been accepted to UNC-Chapel Hill! 

I got into Brandeis. Having so many good feelings.

Hey I was accepted to irvine today

Congratulations to all of you who got off the wait list! Wait-listers hold a special place in my heart :lol: I remember that feeling last year... You will all be amazing.

 

And don't give up yet, those of you still waiting. I found out 2 days before the deadline, so there is still hope!

I legit reread last year's wait list thread a few days ago and you and fiona thunderpaws give me hope. (Cautious, cautious hope.)

Hey, looks like someone got off the waitlist at Pitt! I just sent in my thanks but no thanks this morning, and I was hoping someone from gradcafe would get off the waitlist. I can't think of any regulars who were waitlisted there though...

Two Espressos and girl who wears glasses: so, so happy to hear your news - been rooting for you both! I was once a waitlister-turned-admit to my top choice program myself and know how you feel! Summed up thusly:

Hah. Two bits of good news in as many days. This year really has been good all around. I feel that being waitlisted and getting accepted off it is, in many ways, so much more difficult than getting a straight admit or reject. You're forced to endure an indefinite period of knowing you're good enough to be accepted, if only they had enough spaces, yet you have to wait at the very threshold. I can imagine when the good news arrives for waitlisted folks, it must feel especially sweet.

It's the best feeling in the world.  I'm sure gwwg, It's (Not) About Me, and other former waitlisters would agree.
