Kendall Teare, right, gets excited when talking to her friends about the colleges that they heard from on Thursday. Kendall heard that she was accepted at Yale and would be a member of the rowing team. She and five of her Hall High School classmates met at AC Peterson's restaurant in West Hartford Thursday night to congratulate each other. The deadline to hear from most colleges is April 1, and Thursday was a big day. At left, Paulina Rowe has been accepted at Ithaca, University of Vermont, Meulenberg College and UConn. At center, Julie Kelman has been accepted at the Northwestern and UConn medical programs. Getting into Yale was a total surprise, said Kendall.
