The deposit is still temptingly up for me. Do you think they'd honor it since it's May 2?

I'm going to need help picking out the AdmitNet pic, since it's going to be used by professors and will be in the facebook... law school is turning out to be serious business.

When do you find out about stuff like that? Did they send you an email?

In the "Join the Columbia Online Community" email I got yesterday it mentioned:
"Upload your photograph (required) – this photo will be used for your university ID card, the Student Facebook used by the Law School community and by your professors in the preparation of classroom seating charts. "

Ooh yay!



While I hate sitting for a driver's license-style photo, giving me the power to choose my own is suddenly a bit overwhelming. It just serves to remind me how indecisive I can be.

+1 on it being home, also it's NYC, I just love it here. What's the point of making obscene amounts of money and working absurd hours if you can't leave somewhere with an obscene cost of living?

Haha, you would think. No, it was just the photo I use for my current college ID.

I wonder why it was rejected. A bunch of people on AdmitNet have pictures that don't seem like they would work for a university ID. For a facebook type thing and for professors, yes, but for an ID? I wonder if there is a way to give them one photo for the site and another for the ID.

ho.

I still haven't figured out what to use yet. I really messed up my Cornell ID (it looks like I'm trying to seduce the camera), so I'm taking my time with my Admitnet photo.

Sort of. It may surprise you to find that I declined Michigan. Who knows if I made the right choice. I deposited at Columbia, but I am still unsure if I will attend there or UT.

Well I meant more that everyone will be ridiculously smart, regardless of the ug they attended.
