    See you guys in this fall!!

  40. Qiji says:

    Hey: good luck for the rest of the year, you guys are great. ALthough I didn’t get in, but I still aspire to be part of the community. I will work extremely hard and won’t let me being driven out. Anyway, congratulations on all of you.

  41. : ) says:

    Dear Mr. McGann,
    I am truly sorry to tell you that MIT made its biggest mistake by rejecting a person like me. I will joke about this rejection one day by rejecting to be a guest lecturer to MIT in the future. I am not really feeling bad as much as I pity the great institute for missing a once-upon-a-life-time chance of receiving my application. I am truly sorry for rejecting that supposed-to-be disappointment for receiving your rejection though it slightly hurts my paranoia. I promise to remind you about this letter one day when my name rings a bell in your past.
    I know that I can never be matched by any applicant or current/previous professor to/at any institute in the whole world, however, the idea of god started from a totem. Poor MIT. How could any sane person in the world refuse to accept such a chance? However, I know that I sounded like too much of a perfect genius to MIT and that happens all the time to every human. God helps you to be able to withstand the harsh feeling of regretting this great mistake.

    @ Ifigeneia Derekli

    The tubes are already in the mail for us, with everything… the official letter of admittance, info about MIT, our financial aid, etc. It should get to us sometime next week.

    Well, it might take a little more time than that to get to Greece smile

    congrats to y’all who made it for those who did not just keep working hard and keep trying your dreams can still come true. Remember Hess’s law, there are several ways for a chemical reaction to go to completion. there is no fixed way in which you can accomplish what you want try all the paths and trust me u’ll make ur dreams come true. At lest if u used Hess’s law in writing ur SAT subject test, use it now in ur life.

  92. chrissie says:

    hi guys,
    i received a CALL at 17:15 local time in Cameroon. I’m in a state of shock, anybody from AFRICA?

  93. jenn says:

    hey. so i was debating over whether i should check online or just wait for it in the mail, but i heard it takes like two weeks extra for a tube to go through the mail to hawaii, and i figured, waiting’s not going to change the decision. so today, when i woke up i just quietly went to my computer, and went straight to the decisions website. i’m so stoked!! smile

    btw, is anyone else from hawaii?

  94. Shawn says:

    Oh my god. I am in shock. I just got back from a robotics competition and was bursting to find out. I could have sworn I wouldn’t get in. My mom was staring over my shoulder, but I resisted the temptation to tell her to go away (I wouldn’t want to get rejected in front of her). I read the first sentence and my first reaction was “they’re politely rejecting me…” Then a few seconds later it hit me that I got in and I continued reading the page out loud, my voice steadily getting louder. :-D

    I think I just peed in my pants. (well, not really, but you get the point)

  95. jinjin says:

    thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.
