And for c/o 2011, according to leaked data, Cornell placed about 40%. I'm just hesitant to use this one year of really weird data to justify much of anything.

The Cornell dicksucking on TLS (not from you ATR, just in general) is getting out of hand. It is on track to surpass even the sizable Vandy dicksucking of last year hah

Wow, I had no idea the data fluctuated like that. I'll now treat that "Go-To" list with a grain of salt.

Yeah bro ATL leaked the OCI list a while ago. It's on there somewhere.

I view this year's go-to list as "which markets gave out more offers." It's not that helpful for actual prediction because 1) it's old and 2) people bid and got offers largely pre-ITE.

But the data isn't totally useless. See my above edit.

All right. It's just frustrating for those of us trying to choose schools -- sorry for derailing, Bils -- and obviously you (rad) and others understand our predicament.

Thanks for your input, everyone. It looks like it will be a choice between UCLA and Vandy for me. I'm going to try and get UCLA to increase their offer, and I'll see if either Georgetown or Cornell would be willing to offer me a scholarship of any sort (a small scholarship would probably lure me to one of those schools). I'll update this thread if any of that happens.

Also, no option for CU full ride?

I didn't apply to CU after they didn't respond to my request for a fee waiver, but looking at the scholarships awarded this year and last year there's almost no chance I would have gotten a full tuition scholarship at CU. They're very stingy with finaid, so I probably would have ended up with a $19k scholarship. :/

This is because if it tastes/feels as cold as the rockies, it sucks balls.

This is pretty much what I was going to say.

Agreed, either way you're in a great situation. Good luck!
