Thanks. Six dings prior to this makes this admit that much sweeter.

Hey xenok, congrats! I know what it's like to get tons of dings. But all you need is one acceptance, so congrats!

At what point does the adcom stop making calls? Is the whole afternoon open to this, or is it a morning thing?



They will go until 4 PM CST from what I understand. I got my call at 4PM EST (As you can imagine, it was a stressful day...)

Did you get money from Chicago? that probably would make the decision more difficult to make.

No mention in the call about money, but that lasted only 30 seconds or so, between my impossibly sore throat and the adcom's obvious desire to move on to the 10K calls she still had to make.

I really hope I can get some serious money from Chicago, both because I badly need it and because it would make the decision easier*. In the end, I will have a boxe match between terp26 and riverripper to have a decision. Proceeds will help me funding my education.

nink, I do support Juventus F.C., so consider me a Manchester U. archrival!

Walker, my congratulations. It's superbly deserved.

* no, it would not. Kellogg is awesome as well.

Hang in there buddy....theres still time. Between the BW forum and here, there have been less than 50 calls in total reported so far so I'm sure there will be a lot more calls going out in the afternoon and towards early evening too.
