The waiting game is very stressful. Relax. When our son applied to St. Mary's from a top private high school with strong SATs/grades/legacy/recommendations/sports--we thought it was in the bag. No--he was wait listed!! He missed all the introductory welcome celebrations and the dorm assignment was abysmal. When a friend in admissions did a bit of research--seems weaker, less qualified, "troubled" minorities were accepted over our son! Ah diversity!! He graduated with honors, double major, and an MBA--we changed our trust and no longer donate---ask the ones who got the free/discounted tuition on our backs.
