Harvard, the second and last of the two schools to which I applied, sent me an e-mail this afternoon letting me know that admissions decisions were posted online.

Regrettably, I was not accepted for admission for fall 2010.

This means, of course, that I move on to Plan B. I’ll let everyone know what that is as soon as I have details solidified.

Thank you again to all who have been so loving and supportive throughout all this. I understand that it was meant to be for whatever reasons, and I need to accept that. A big part of me is happy that the process and the wait are over; the path I take now will be no less than what it might have been had I attended Harvard or Yale. I must remember that.
