Did your letter writers give you guidance about which school to apply?
In any case, I wouldn't read much into getting a rejection from Stanford.

Stanford just sent me a rejection letter (way earlier than I thought), and I'm starting to feel nervous. It's only 1 rejection out of 14 I've applied, but I fear that I may be rejected by all. Did I aim too high, and should I have applied to more safety schools?
