While I may lack Ben‘s ability to speak to the heart, Matt‘s wisdom, Yan‘s vocabulous wit, and Anna‘s inspirational eloquence, I can offer you a byte (or a few) from my bottomless cache of labyrinthine analogies, inappropriately timed humor, and meme pictures.
There will ultimately be a binary outcome to the decision you receive from MIT, and the odds are heavily weighted against one.
I don’t know which envelope you’ll find in the mailbox on Monday. But I can tell you that it won’t change who you are. Regardless of whether you go to MIT or elsewhere, your intrinsic drive and talent are the real players at work. To borrow Barney Stinson’s catchphrase, the ability to make the impossible possimpible lies within you.

So don’t ever let anything get you down enough to stop riffing on that quadruple-necked guitar, analyzing brainwaves, building fuel cells, pushing gastronomy to new heights, designing bridges, or whatever it is you do. There’s a whole new world full of opportunities about to open up to you, wherever you end up. Best of luck to you all — in admissions, yes, but more importantly, in life.
lolz @ the alt-text for the images.

Thank you Rachel And that was very appropriately timed Barney Stinson humor.
Yup! MIT or not, I’m gonna be King of the Pirates!

@Jordan: no, I’m just so old I forgot how admissions works. sorry. online is still the way to go.
Some will get in, some won’t.
lol why are all the bloggers being so equivocal in their blogs regd decisions ! “Mit will change your life” and “it wont make a difference in life”
I am in possession of an animal of the equestrian variety.
*tickle* *tickle* *tickle* and he goes “neighhhh! neighhh! neighhh!” (I swear he enjoys it). Everyone needs a tickle once in a while
guys, I don’t mind, but just FYI, the fact that my posts reference a lot of memes does not mean that we’re now on 4chan
OMG BITTERSWEET SCHARFFEN BERGER’S (although I’m sure other brands are just as great) CHOCOLATE IS AWESOME. Also dark chocolate. Can a pie be bittersweet?

So there are envelopes coming Monday?…Does this mean that most of us will know our fate before the online 9:26 pm posting?
Best of luck to everyone here!
