with rejections from berkeley and cornell. looks like ill be heading to illinois in the fall. the rejections dont faze me all that much because i know getting into 4 of the 9 colleges i applied to is a spectacular feat for putting in 1/100000 the effort my peers did and i will be going to a top five school in my major. but still, it stings a bit. if i had worked harder then i probably wouldnt have had to 'make do' when it came to college selection. oh well. no point in feeling melancholy. where my life will end up eventually is measured by what i make of the opportunities i have, not how much i mourn over the ones ive missed.
