Me too. Grew up in SoCal and went to undergrad in SoCal. Might be time to get out of the bubble. Best of luck.

Congrats!

Did they notify you of completion via e-mail? My report and letters were sent to them 7 weeks ago, and I haven't heard from them since. Talk about making me nervous! Also, way to go on NYU!

Congrats!

Congrats! So I'm stalking everyone who got this to see their thoughts :). Are you leaning towards Harvard or Columbia? I'm conflicted.

Congrats on all of the above, including your latest addition. If I'm not prying overly much, what is your science based graduate program? Best of luck in the decision making....

Nah, I skipped Yale because my wife will be applying to grad school next year, and so we wanted a school in a big city with lots of other schools; we figured that it wouldn't be wise to bank on her being admitted to Yale, however deserving we think she is. Also, since she'll be working on a Ph.D., I'll be in whatever city we end up in for at least a year or two after I finish, and I don't think the opportunities in New Haven really match those in Boston. I just went from 95% sure I was going to commit to Harvard to 100%, I plan to do public interest work, and the idea of turning down the money from Columbia was a bit uncomfortable for me until I saw that Harvard had a new program to pay for 3rd year tution for students who can credibly commit to public interest work for 5 years after graduation. I had really good interaction with Penn's admissions dept., I feel a little bad about withdrawing there, too, I know what you mean. What about you? Any thoughts so far? Why 2 visits to NYU? I hope to see you at Harvard!
