congrats on your acceptances, especially with georgetown and my alma matter UCLA! what are your softs (PM if don't want to reveal). good luck on the rest of your cycle!

Friday, November 28 2008 at 07:00 PM

congrats on all your acceptances! we have really similar numbers so i've been watching your profile... i hope your acceptances mean good news for me too! good luck with the rest of your cycle!

Friday, November 28 2008 at 07:00 PM

any thoughts on where you're going to be in the fall?

good question
Sunday, August 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

it's not an easy decision at all - and i'd be happy to discuss the details if you want to drop me an email. i think for me it had a lot to do with the different cities, in addition to the cost factor. another key for me was the idea that tulane really has a ton of stuff going on that i'm interested in... more than i expect to be able to take advantage of, really. so while nyu offered EVEN more in a number of areas... i felt like it was just excess, in a way. once i got my head out of the rankings/ego part, the whole "fit" thing started to become clear. but depending on your situation and your priorities, i could easily imagine recommending the other choice. good luck, in any case!

congrats on penn! making that decision between gulc and penn must have been tough - it was hard for me to turn down gtown too. best of luck to you in the fall!
