where's the choices:

accepted to schools i'd be happy with, haven't heard from a lot and therefore have no idea where i want to go?

don't have a first choice school

haven't heard from first choice school yet

edit: sorry, i guess you hadve "Accepted somewhere I'll be happy, waiting/waitlisted at 1st choice" but "waiting" and "waitlisted" are two entirely different scenarios. Waiting can be resolved within days at some schools whereas waitlisted could take until the first day of classes at others.

Nope. I got my first acceptance yesterday -UCI MSTP. :clap: I'm still waiting on a couple of schools. Still I'd be more than happy to go to UCI.

So long as I'm going somewhere other than back to my parents house, life is good.

Still, the dream lives on. Harvard sends out next week......

You are an interesting individual Psycho. Do you happen to live in Berkeley? I wanna meet you in person. Wanna get drinks at Henry's this week?

I'll agree with sdnstud. Pyscho seems pretty cool.

As someone who went to Catholic schools for a while (like most Catholics my age I say I was raised Catholic), the line from Psycho's signature is one of my all time favorites:

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
