You will get into NYU and Columbia. Just wait! Unless you have zero desire to attend CN.

NY, NY is logistically tough for me. I have 2 dogs, and the cost of living is nuts!

Unless you obfuscated your GPA, it probably won't be too hard for them to figure out who you are if you apply. With that said, calling them d-bags might not be ideal.

Yes. I'm so sure Chicago adcoms scour this forum.

And they'll still take his money, no matter what he calls them.

In all seriousness though, I'd do it if you're that anti NY. Normally I'd say no but since you're paying sticker anyway you might as well get more bang for your buck. Also, I'm not sure how much sooner they get the decision to you but having even a week or two more notice than regular transfer admission can be super helpful when figuring out the logistics of moving cities and whatnot.

They probably don't, but it's still not the best thing to do.

You'd be surprised by who might wind up reading something you post on here. I'm pretty confident I got rejected from WUSTL back in 08' as a result of something I posted on here (basically saying something offensive about the school). I mean, based on the Yahoo transferapps posts, I should have been a lock for WUSTL early action (they did EA back then), but they dinged me literally 2 days after I applied (and a day after I posted something offensive about the school on here), despite the fact that they didn't send out other rejection letters for a couple months after the application deadline. They also refused to even consider me for regular decision, even though I was #2 in my class at a tier 3. I'm 98% confident it was a result of what I posted on TLS.
