    I feel like I've been waiting so long, I've gotten to the point that I'm dreading the end of the wait. I've worked myself up into worry about the results, whereas I was quite calm and relaxed when I first sent off the application.

    The 6+ week wait for Explore now seems utterly brutal to me!

    *sigh*

    ..and so many 25s (26s!) in the Explore scores. Those are heavier, aren't they? wink

    Having gone through the months long private schools admissions process, I have to say that I am impressed that DYS can and does get its answers out so quickly. Of course, that doesn't make the wait any easier when you know the letter's in the mail...

    Good luck to everyone waiting on the mail today. I just heard our mail truck pull up, but I'm only expecting bills today.

    And again, Cathy A, the more information letter is not a bad thing. But I agree, it's tough trying to figure out what to send.

    That sucks. They need to have online score look-ups for those kinds of tests.

    LOL! We didn't have to because they drive right up to the mailbox. DH did shovel out a path to the mailbox for me though. He knew I'd be racing to the box today!

    Though, really, I'm dreading the results now. I don't think I even want to know...

    Dottie, I think I need to get my big-girl pants back from you for this wait. I'm losing my cool!

    And I've done so well all along, too. Really, I have! frown
