I though about doing it to save money, but (from an economic perspective) the opportunity costs of returning to school after entering the work force start to add up to the point it would be more worth it to enroll right away.


Yeah I guess just in terms of possible income, it doesn't make sense for me to go back to law school. My earning potential is pretty high just from where I'm at right now.

But alas, law is the dream. I think my parents hope that I'll just be happy where I am and not sink anymore money into my education. Who knows, maybe I will. I guess that's another benefit of a year off. A little perspective never hurt anyone.

The financial district is a subway ride away form either NYU or Columbia, wherever you end up!

(Though I'll probably still be at the office when it originally airs...weekend hulu parties instead?)

I still think you should come to NYC and hang out with me next year <3

BUT FINE :evil:

If you replace Hulu with Tivo, we can have them at my apartment :)

We migrated to the ED waiting thread.

Hahaha....ED waiting thread... (it's funny because erectile dysfunction requires a lot of waiting. No? I'll go back to studying now.)

I took an extra year (I am now 2 years out of undergrad) to get some experience and perspective, to solidify my decision to go to law school, to let my brain work in a different (less academic) way, to live in another country, and, yes, to (hopefully) wait for the economy to recover a bit before hitting the job market. And I am very glad I did! I feel much more confident in my decision to go to law school, and have a couple of years of international work experience under my belt. I would definitely recommend to anyone taking 1+ years off, deferral or not.

Ohai Ver! I keep checking in but I've had some issues with the plumbing in my house and so I haven't really been able to get on as much.

I also just recently discovered the ED waiting thread:

Jump on in!

Edit: All the new people were RD NYU and, once being admitted, decided T6 wasn't good enough anymore; so now they're here.

You're more than welcome! Are you leaning towards the Village or Morningside Heights?

Team Blair/Serena/Nate or Team Humphrey/Vanessa?

Well I applied for a fellowship abroad, and if I get that I would definitely be requesting a deferral (I did in fact call and ED students are allowed to apply for deferral. That doesn't mean they'll grant it, but I think in my case they would probably understand.

I've been hibernating in the ED waiting thread. This thread moves too fast for me, contrasted with how I pretty much know my fall grades, yet Columbia most likely won't get them (finals period has to end first, then I have to request them, then they have to receive them... huge delays possible in the latter two) until most likely January 5th or so... :(

Verteeeex. I'm lost in this sea of new people, glad to see you're still around. New people are cool though and very active haha. They've brought girly tv shows and lolcats with them so there's plenty of laughs to be had :P

Also a lot of the EDers seem to have migrated to the ED thread. We've missed your daily "hold on to your seat belt!" posts!

OMG Morningside all the way! I've been so disappointed with Serena's decision making in regards to her love life these last couple episodes.
