Round 3

Did you go for Round 3? If you were 0/x, what was your strategy, and what's your backup plan? Did you submit a hardship appeal?

Based on last year's August 2012 wait pool list, we can expect large waitpools at many non-"trophy" schools like Alamo (wait pool 15 last year), Fairmount (23), Lawton (16), Peabody (15), Sloat (18), Stevenson (15), Sunset (30), and Taylor (15 GE, 13 Chinese Bilingual). Anyone giving up spots at any of these or the "trophy" schools?

Good luck to everyone!

Round II Letters Mailed Today

I haven't confirmed that the EPC mailed the round II letters today, but according to the "Key Dates" section, Round II Notification letters are to be mailed on May 10.  If a new assignment is received, it will replace the current school assignment.  There will be no option to keep your previous assignment.
Any one out there receive a letter?  New assignment?
