Someone has to fall or something what? SO pretty much the waitlist means it totally depends on the year that means they accepted so they accepted a certain amount people and they wait-listed an amount of people if some people don’t like actually matriculate to Harvard or to Columbia then I would get a place but like I mean Yale is not too of a back up option I’m gonna call Shaimaa again Shaimaa needs to pick up her phone! like wrong with this little girl (she isn’t actually little lol) oh my god oh my god oh my god who’s playing music is it Princeton oh my god whoa whoa I don’t know what is wrong with Shaimaa and why she won’t pick up her cell phone pick up the cell phone little girl oh she very well might be in class [she was] very possible oh is Penn the one playing all this music Assalamu ‘Alaikum you’ve reached Shaimaa I’ll get back to you as soon as possible what a weakling doesn’t pick up her phone so uh yeah definitely had a much more involved reaction than I expected but there you go I got accepted to I got accepted to Yale University whoa I got accepted to Yale Princeton and University of Pennsylvania wait listed by harvard and columbia not too shabby of a day I’d say
