Hurry Up and Waitlist

I got the waitlist email from UCLA Anderson today. By my calculations it’s 67% positive. It’s good to still be in the running, but the perpetual state of purgatory is agonizing. However, knowing that USC is a great option is very comforting.

In a related story, Haas said “thanks, but no thanks” last Friday. I expected it, given that I wasn’t invited to Super Saturday. Honestly speaking, I don’t know if I would have gone even if they had accepted me. I’ve never been fond of Berkeley, even though having an excuse to move back to the Bay would have been cool. That’s not a knock against the school, by any means. It’s one of the best in the world, without a doubt. Anyway, it’s a moot point.

So, at this point it’s about waiting out the waitlist. If you are weighing your Anderson acceptance Vs. another school, I recommend the other school. :>)
