btw (just in case some people don't know that this exists) here's the awesome PS guide (with plenty of sample PSs) made by TLS founder Ken:

Yeah, I'm worried it might be hard to "tell my story in a compelling way" and bring up a bunch of specific stuff about a school at the same time. I think the former is more important than the latter if it comes down to it.

I lean towards doing a separate PS and Why X. I think school specific PSs only work well if you can tie your goals and life story well to a school's selling point (i.e. if you have been wanting to do PI all your life then you can mix your PS and Why NYU perfectly). Anything short of that will be basically squeezing a paragraph of school specific stuff in the already tight two pages for your PS (and making it hard to structure it coherently), in which case you might be better off just writing a Why X.

Yeah, I'm definitely going to do a Why X regardless. It might not be hard to have a mildly school-specific slant in that you mention the name of the school a couple of times. But if it feels artificial or tacked on or impeding on the rest of the PS then I won't bother with it.

I was surprised that Stanny's 25th is lower than H's (at least this year). I always thought of H as the most splitter-friendly of the t14 - Perhaps not.

They've been riding a slight GPA fall and lsat fall for a while according to LST. HYS all accept a 15X every year for some reason too.
only 180 a year attend, damn small and selective.

You know when you're so behind on sleep that it feels like the skin under your eyes has been injected with novocaine? I love that!

preftige af

And even though I am a preftige whore now like everyone else on here, I believe I am going to be spending next year with my first love (the first school to accept me). Duke just seems like the perfect fit for me and I'm 99.9999% sure that's where I'll be

Someone here started the preftige wagon of the great school Stanny, idk who. Duke is fantastic school man, you'll love it there. Did they ever negotiate more?

oh, you must have missed it. Duke matched my Michigan offer, which was awesome. Still fighting tooth and nail for a little more icing on the cake, though. I think the school is a perfect fit for me all around, and it's now my cheapest t13 option (sory UT, I cut you out)

Stanny has no preftige, they are on the wrong side of the bay. Hail Berk!

happy the Stanford love isn't UChicago love because that would make my decision so much harder if everyone was talking them up
