Holding on to them for the time being. I will withdraw from a few very soon (namely, after I visit the East Coast).

Are the girls hot in berkeley?

  • Decision ....
  • Thursday, January 28 2010 at 10:14 PM

To be honest, I would narrowing it down to Stanford or Berkeley. After hearing that there are few good looking women, this may alter my decision. Of course, I will visit the campus and the surrounding regions for verification. I have lived on the East Coast for 22 yrs of my life. In sum, I can tell you isn't anything to write home about, unless you love miserable weather. The reputation of the school isn't worth living through 3 years of Icy Hell. You will get sick twice as much during the winter. If you can do it, then the best of luck to you. In addition, there are a lot of fatties on the East Coast.

- boogaloo
  • Thank you!
  • Monday, February 01 2010 at 08:25 AM

Good luck to you too, although you already got into the best school in the world! I know everybody thinks I won't need luck, but I still have no JR1 from Harvard so I really don't know. I really hope I get in there.

oh i was just asking of you applied to H/S. i didn't read your notes :). Would you take either over Y?

- englawyer
  • Monday, February 01 2010 at 09:21 AM

That is, next to Harvard!

Hey congrats on all the success! Just curious why you decided to go from engineering to law? A 3.8 in engineering is awesome! And.. if you don't mind... did you go to Cal? (i'm assuming from the "go bears" comment :)

  • Saturday, February 06 2010 at 05:20 PM

I love the question about hot girls in Berkeley. I also don't take offense to your answer, especially in engineering. For the record, Stanford isn't any better in that sense.

- caleng
  • Saturday, February 06 2010 at 11:11 PM

Haha, awesome. What's your top choice right now? I'm sure H/S will take you, without a doubt! When are you withdrawing from Columbia and NYU? =p

  • Tuesday, February 09 2010 at 08:52 AM

thanks! you too! what are your preferences so far? you must be super amazing to get that auto-admit at Yale. congrats!!!

- booby87
  • Wednesday, February 10 2010 at 06:41 AM

I think Harvard and the Darrow at Michigan are my top two right now but Stanford comes in and out of that as well. I wish I could choose them all! haha tantalizing Yale, I like it! :)

Just noticed your comment. WTF Chicago.

- crackberry
  • Choose S
  • Thursday, February 25 2010 at 09:37 AM

Choose Stanford...it opens up one more potential spot at Yale for me! ;) Just kidding. But the fact that we are practically numbers twins gives me hope...congrats on Stanford!

- democrattotheend
  • Congrats on Stanford
  • Thursday, February 25 2010 at 05:38 PM

The call from Dean Deal was definitely a great way to start the day! :)

- lunita
  • Congrats to you as well
  • Saturday, March 13 2010 at 06:43 PM

You've clearly had quite the cycle yourself! I'd have to say that Yale seems like a good fit for me right now, but I am leaving the decision totally up in the air until I visit each admitted students weekend because I believe in the importance of atmosphere.

- jugamac
  • for sure
  • Tuesday, March 16 2010 at 09:38 PM

Yeah--hopefully I'll see you in New Haven in late April!
