The bad news: I didn't get the spot.
The good news: Adam Rosenblatt did.
The other good news: I'm first on the wait list.
I knew from the beginning that if the audition was just between me and Adam, Adam would easily win. I would still do it anyway, and still hope for the best, but I knew that he had the advantage. It was the other seven people I was worried about.
There is still a chance for me to go to Yale. A few of the current returning Yale students are in the job circuit right now. If one of them wins a job, that means I'm going! Also, if my teacher is somehow able to convince the dean of Yale to take seven students for next year, I may also be able to join. The economy sucks, so therefore the endowment at Yale is pretty tight, and it would be fairly difficult to convince the dean to do something like that.
Regardless, I am unbelievably proud of Adam, and I'm also proud of myself for getting as far as I did. I'm keeping my fingers crossed--I've gotten pretty far, but it's not over yet!
