Jeez, I'm being very serious, which rules out "perpetual flame." You're mean, miamiman. I've done nothing but show my kindness to you.


Your wachtell thread was comedic gold. I was convinced you were a flame.


Well I guess I could be perceived as a complete idiot, but I think there are plenty of others out there that are just as curious as I am:D

I am very fond of you miamiman.

If "getting their act together" means accepting my transfer app soon, then I sure hope they do.

This is a loaded, vague, and virtually meaningless question all at the same time. What are you even asking?


I was asking a very general question - "So, It'd be okay for me to give a 'thumbs up' for WUSTL, right?" kind of thing.

WUSTL is absolutely legit if you are choosing between schools outside of the top 10 at sticker and they give you a significant scholarship. All things equal, Vandy and UT are definitely a cut above (im a southern boy, know nothing about USC and UCLA).

Obviously, every person is different and each situation is unique, but in general WUSTL is great for:

-Splitters: They usually get in and get some scholarship money, whereas schools like UCLA, Vandy, etc. are less likely to accept them, and are very unlikely to give money.
-Midwesterners: Great school if you want to be in the Midwest. They place well in Chicago and in smaller markets around the Midwest.
-The debt averse: WUSTL gives a lot of money out, so taking a big scholarship at WUSTL over a higher ranked school at sticker is a good idea for certain folks.
