OP: Go to Vandy. It's one if the few schools I regret not applying to.

We raised close to 8K last Saturday at an inter-grad school fundraiser for the Clinton-Bush fund, Jack White made a surprise appearance last night for anyone in the know who went to The Basement, a bunch of people went to a free concert at Sommet earlier in the week for a new Gwyneth Paltrow movie where she plays some rising country star, and tomorrow people have the option of going to a rave party hosted by a bunch of 2Ls or crashing the Tea Party Convention and picking up some ridiculous gear out at Opryland. So far nothing has swayed me from finishing up this seminar paper, but the Tea Party crashing idea may be too good to resist.
Also, I agree about trying to negotiate scholarships whenever possible. Can't hurt to try, and every school is painfully aware right now that what they're charging doesn't match up with what we can expect to earn back in the market right now. That goes for T10 schools as well, not just us lowly non-T14s.
Obs, you make me wish I went to Vandy, and you know how I feel about my own beloved home. Go crash the Tea Party. <3
It's so ridiculous I don't know how I'm going to deal with not at least driving over there on an extended lunch break, even if we stand no shot at getting in to see Palin speak. The real shame is that Opryland is a good 20 minutes outside of downtown and has plenty of hotel space right there, so the odds of Broadway being flooded with Tea Partiers tonight is probably slim.
OS, I hear there's a Columbia/NYU Valentines mixer next weekend. What gives, no Fordham love??? I say you crash it like I plan on crashing this Tea Party thing.
