What would you have done differently? Delaware was my top choice, so I am happy. Could have made better grades during freshmen/sophomore years--this did not hurt me too much in the end. I thought that my GRE would keep me out of graduate school, but that didn't seem to weigh as heavily as I anticipated. My work/internship experience and my letter of recommendation's probably made up for a couple of F's freshman year and for my horrendous GRE's. I did not "explain away" any of my weaknesses in my SOP--I only focused on my strengths. Everyone told me to apply to more than two schools but no other schools seemed like a 'good fit' for me. I expected two rejections and got none. I'm happy!
