It's a long, tough road. It's great that you're supporting him. As applicants, I think the best we can do at this point is stay positive, and keep up our EC work with an eye on reapplying. If II's don't come in (and I'm hoping they do) I would focus some of those words of encouragement on all the positives that a gap year may bring.Very disheartening and trying to keep spirits up here at home. Still no II’s. 4 rejections including 1 of the 2 state schools. 19 schools no news.
I have been using all the sound bites. “Most accepted students only get 1 or 2 interviews and only 1 offer.“ “There is still opportunities to interview til February”. “I read about a person with no interviews until late who ended up with a few offers”. Blah blah blah.
Fingers crossed (does that work?).
