Waitlist Calling + Stevie Wonder = Good Day
Quick note today to let you in on a rare day in our office. As I mentioned yesterday, we’ve been calling students who are being admitted from the waitlist. That means that we as admissions officers get to hear the reaction we rarely ever are privy to when students open their admit letter. We’d have a couple of occurrences today where a couple of us would get together in the hall and share stories of students screaming with excitement, a couple of “are you serious’s?!” and a ton of “OMG’s!” It’s never about us throughout any of this whole process, anybody on our staff would tell you that. But when compared to days when our office is flooded with angry calls over the decisions that we’ve made, days devoted solely to good news are happy ones indeed.
Plus my drive home was punctuated by a high volume airing of old school Stevie Wonder. “I Wish.” It doesn’t get any better than that.
