I agree! I just got a wave of rejection letters and it has actually done wonders to set my mind at ease. Basically, for schools that I'm not too excited about (i.e. George Washington, Albert Einstein, etc.) the rejection letter was so much better than waiting in limbo. I think NYU is definitely in that category - I just want to cross it off my list and be done with it!
(but I am counting down the days until Duke sends out its letters.....c'mon Duke! LET ME IN!!)
