I have always loved Yale and would love more than anything else to get in. I kind of actually despise Gilmore Girls now… just because competition is even higher since Rorie’s acceptance. I am a freshman in high school and am quite worried about my future concerning the Ivy’s. I would die if I didn’t get into Yale, but for the life of me I can’t think of anything I could do to stand out! I know that I should start some program or after school club for like under-privileged children, but I have not the faintest clue as to how I should go about this! I thought I could possibly start a tennis club, for I love tennis, but there really aren’t that many children in my area that are under-privileged, and even if there were, I have no idea as to how I could get anyone to join. I also play the viola, but am not talented so that won’t work, unless I ask a prodigious friend to help… hmm…. Well, if anyone has ANY helpful tips or suggestions, I would love the advice! And for those of you who have been accepted/are currently students of Yale, any advice on your part would be much appreciated! Thanks! 4 years ago
So.. I got a call in mid May. Well.. callS. When the first call came through, I wasnt home. Second call, I was home. He asked me if I was interested in getting off the waitlist and I said yeah. And he said that tehre was a high chance that I am accepted off the waitlist. and I said coolies..
But after Penn making me wait that long, I came across becoming in love with the school I sent my deposit to (carnegie mellon)and realised that CMU > Penn in most aspects of my college life – aspects that I find important, maybe not to the general public, such as major, department (engineering), job prospects, flexibility in course work and departments, etc… and so I’ll be attending CMU in the fall.
I havent told many people of my acceptnace to Penn but to the ones I have, they told me I was crazy for rejecting an ivy. But what is more important to me is the FIT of the college relative to the student and I just feel that CMU is the better fit for me.
Good luck for everyone that’s applying to Penn or any other ivy for Fall 08!

I was so surprised when I read that I was put on the WAITING LIST (Penn).
I mean, I thought I was a definete reject!!
I’m putting down my name for the waiting list :) 6 years ago
Initially, I did not want to attend ANY of the ivy leagues because I just didn’t like them. Reluctantly, I put one on my list of colleges because… well i don’t really know.
I talked to my friend at Princeton and I asked him about Penn (the school on my list). He told me lots of great stories about Penn (because he goes there all the time for basketball games and what not) and now I loove penn!
My dream Ivyleague was Princeton and the more I’ve found about it, the more un-dreamy it became.
I’ve applied to Penn in december and the essay I wrote for Why Penn is by far, the best college essay I’ve written. I hope I hope I hope I get in – I’m their below-average applicant in regards to stats and ECs but I hope they see something in me! 6 years ago
It’s more important to go somewhere you’d be happy. 6 years ago
i am only a freshman but i just can already feel that i NEED to be there. my parents expect a lot from my sister and i, and when we toured the ivy league schools this year i could just see myself there at harvard, yale, princeton, penn, or columbia! i just want to work hard, find something i am good at and get involved aso i can achieve this goal!! 6 years ago
