Congrats to those who gained recent acceptance into the universities! For those who were waitlisted, here's a word of comfort. As someone who has managed to turn the ambiguity of being on the waitlist for the class of 2011 into the reality of acceptance, I urge you to NOT give up. A chance is a chance- no matter how slim it may be. If you are wondering what steps to take next, how to go about doing it or what type of updates the admissions might be looking for, I am more than willing to offer guidance and help.

Just email me!

Darkhello, did you happen to gain acceptance into Yale? (Since you are in New Haven, CT) And you were waitlisted when the April 1 decisions were announced? How long did it take for them to bring you in in the end?

Congrats! A large number of you guys are ReComers!

To all those on wait-list, do hope that you work hard to turn your wait list into reality!

To all those who didn't manage to get, lets not worry. Good Luck for your other applications!

An interesting commonality of those 11 who got Northwestern or on wait-list for Northwestern. They all apply to Cornell.

Good Luck to all of you who are still waiting for admission decision for other universities!!! Am sure you guys are excited about the Super Tuesday, 1st April (aka April Fool Day)...

If anyone knows of more people who get, do share it here!

Thank you, chen chow. This might be a rather wet blanket for those waiting in agony for April Fools Day, please remember that getting into your dream university does not make or break you. Getting into your dream university simply makes the path to your dream slightly easier. If you are determined enough, you will always reach your final goals. Oh, and good luck!

  #28 Old 29-03-2008 Default Stanford Admits of 2008!

To all applicants of Stanford 2008, the email decision letters are already sent!

I am overjoyed to learn that I have been offered admission to the university.

I got to know from Chen Chow that so far 3 Malaysians are accepted and if anyone else received the good news, do share it here.

Thank you!
