The Alpha 2016 Share the Wait Thread
It’s a little late this year, but here’s a thread for people to fret, commiserate, encourage, and generally talk about worries. Feel free to talk about your application story, too– the judges don’t read this one.
We’re here to help each other. Stay calm!

Only three days left! I’ve been anxious all month. Friday can’t come fast enough.

I know, right? I’m so excited!

I think my friend are getting annoyed at me for talking about it so much. But it’s so close!

Just one more day!

At most, it’ll be 30 hours from now. That’s it!

Does anyone know how many applications there were total?

I am insanely nervous!! I know that this would be an amazing opportunity and the wait has kinda been killing me.
April 15, 2016 @ 12:49 pm
The suspense is too much. I need to know!
April 15, 2016 @ 1:58 pm
It really is! I wonder at what time they’re going to send out answers!? At this point it’s just driving me mad.

I’ve gotten to the point where I almost don’t want the emails to arrive because I’m so nervous.

I don’t know… I’m really just hoping for the email at this point. I’ve been obsessively reloading my email all day.

Anyone heard anything? It is today, right?
April 15, 2016 @ 6:21 pm
@Sabriba I still haven’t heard anything, but the decision date was supposed to be today, yes. Anyone else?
April 15, 2016 @ 6:27 pm
Nope. I haven’t heard anything.
April 15, 2016 @ 7:22 pm
It’s today, but nothing yet. It is April 15th, right?
April 15, 2016 @ 7:36 pm
They’ve finally gone out! Looks like I’m going back to Alpha.

They arrived. I didn’t get in but… trying really hard to be positive about not being accepted! Congrats to everyone who did get in.
