Anybody here already a New York Jets fan? One awesome part about attending Columbia is going to be actually getting to see all the games - us out of market NFL fans get screwed.

Random question: did you receive any immediate confirmation of your deposit? I did the online thing on Monday but it was hard to tell if it went through or not (and my card isn't charged yet). I'm probably being needlessly obsessive... when will I relax about all this? :lol:

I was also concerned that I didn’t receive any confirmation from CLS. Confirmation came a week or two later when I got my email address.

Edit: You can also try and re-do the enrollment online, but it should tell you that you can’t because you’ve already completed it.


I also sent in my enrollment decision over a month ago. Did not receive a confirmation, nor an e-mail address yet, but the website says I submitted it, so. Shrug!

This is after sending the enrollment deposit, yes?


ummmm I enrolled weeks ago and I didn't get jack today except a reminder about admitted students' days. I feel seriously neglected and like I might be on the wrong mailing list.


I enrolled in February and I haven't gotten anything either! (not even my fin aid package...) I feel like they like to send stuff on Friday so I'm hoping in 2 days I'll have a couple e-mails waiting...

I think it’s the result of classic tastes running into vodka-only DC happy hours.


It seems not to have any negative impacts on women, but the problem is that for a guy, generally what happens when drinking cosmos is a series of increasingly regrettable decisions. I'm not really sure why it works that way.

I do have a soft spot for Greyhounds, though - excellent antioxidant properties - but if I'm going to live in New York, I'm going to drink lots of Manhattans... especially with Crown Royal to celebrate my Canadian heritage 8)

Sigh. I like drinking.

I’m going to have to disagree here. Personally, I’ve never been able to fit as much alcohol into a drink and not been able to taste it as I have with cosmopolitans. I use about 2/3 vodka, 1/6 triple sec, and 1/6 cranberry juice (dash of citrus optional). It packs quite a punch. Oh yeah, I don’t use martini glasses…I’m not completely socially inept ;)

That said, I’m really a beer/wine guy and mixed drinks are a rarity for me.


I'm a beer/wine girl (well, mostly wine - trying to get into beer at the moment, but I do prefer a glass of tempranillo). However, it's been a few years since I've really "drank to get drunk," which it seems you use cosmopolitans for. I'm a lightweight anyway (fairly slender) and can typically get drunk after a few glasses of wine (or two martinis), so then again I'm probably a much cheaper date than you.

+1 whiskey sours

Also, Godfather's are great, especially when accompanied by a tightly rolled cigar.

Did we just become best friends?

For shame. There are plenty of other tasty drinks that don't expose you to the awkwardness of ordering a Cosmo as a guy. That being said, as you point out, wine/beer = always a good call.
