Cool topic!


Since I'm an international student, I heard from all my universities post 1 am local time.


First acceptance- It was 1.24 am...was up watching TV...saw it on my phone....


First wait-list: It was an hour or so after dinner....saw it on my phone....the title of the email was 'update' which I thought was weird....when I didn't see the word congratulations in the first line I was sure it's a rejection but turned out to be wait-list


Second acceptance- had been tossing and turning in bed but couldn't sleep..so logged onto grad cafe...received the decision email around 4.30 am....
