Is this unusual? (NYU and Columbia related)

Postby Canadian » Sun Feb 07, 2010 9:46 pm

Is it unusual that I was accepted at NYU over a month ago, yet I have not heard one peep from Columbia?

In a word: no. The two schools have no relation whatsoever beyond geographical proximity. You'll find many TLS-ers in your position.

And the fact that both have an O in their name...

I actually find that fact less curious than the fact that their names. share no other letters.

I find it curious that you spell either 'Columbia' or 'University' without a U or I and have been (or will be) accepted to both of these schools.

I don't think that we can count "University" as one of the words, since every school has that word in its name.

I would accept that argument if it was NY instead of NYU. For some schools the 'University' is required, and for some like Columbia it isn't.

I don't see how. Maybe I'm not in the know, but I thought people refered to the school as New York University or NYU. Perhaps you can spell out how why my logic dictates I accept his arugment. Does it help if I say my hidden assumption was that for NYU 'University' is required and essential part of the name?

Actually, you might be credited. My Columbia letter says "Columbia Law School."

Lawyer to witness: "Would you be more willing to say that Charlie killed David if I tell you that it happened around 8 pm? Or does it help if I say that it happened around 10 pm? Which set of facts makes it easier for you to say what I need you to say?"

I like this short response alot more than the one that ended up with the same spelling flaw I came here to point out. To answer your question more clearly: no.
