Yay, I’m [somewhat] desirable.

Just got an email telling me I am on the waitlist at Syracuse, which is my first concrete news of any kind during this admissions process. I’m not too broken up about not getting in. I went in with absolutely no idea of what my odds could possibly be,  so it’s nice to hear that I’m not just shooting an utterly unsuitable writing sample down into the hole of first-glance rejection.
