I just heard back from Carnegie Mellon University, one of the places I applied for graduate school. I did not get in.
I did, however, receive a notice from the University of Maryland that I have been selected, on the basis of my academic record, as a "possible candidate for student speaker at the University Commencement Ceremony." I don't know how many other students got this letter or how many will be selected to speak. It said that if I'm interested I should send them a draft of my speech and it should be 2-4 minutes long.
It would be cool, the only thing is I'm not exactly sure what I would talk about. I do have until March 30 to send it in, so I will have some time to think about it.
