I get the seeming need for justification, I just don't understand why people are using their own internal justification for their decision to sway those who have not yet decided. The conversation just seems a bit one-sided, focused primarily on NYU students distaste for Columbia.
Anyway, not intending to argue or anything, perhaps I missed some comments that would have filled in the gaps.
its envy of getting passed over by the hotter girl
most NYU students wanted to come to CLS and got denied so they have deluded themselves into thinkiing they never wanted CLS and that NYU is better
I've noticed the same phenomenon here at CLS with regard to HLS
and I'm sure the same might be happening at HLS with regard to YLS
pretty much everyone at these school are prestige obsessed strivers who value their worth as people by what some piece of paper says they are worth
Guys, please don't let this type of attitude turn you off to CLS. I'm sure that most of the students at NYU simply preferred that school to CLS.
That said, the grain of truth in this guy's posts is that, save around interview season (when the spirit of competition reigns), CLS kids really don't engage in any NYU-CLS comparison or NYU-bashing. We really don't care about these things.
Although he is trolling, his post prob has a lot of truth to it
