Awwww. My mom would be proud, but she doesn't really want me to be in NYC so it wouldn't be the best news for her. I honestly don't know if I would really attend either because I don't think their rumored ultra-competitive environment would suit me. And not that I would base my decision off of this, but it makes me sad that it's so freaking ugly. However their LRAP is almost as good as HYS, so I still find it very tempting. And as much as I hate to admit it I am a little bit of a prestige whore.
That's like my EXACT dilemma! If their LRAP weren't so awesome, MVP would be an obvious choice :/ Goddamn CLS being so ugly! & the COL so expensive!
I just don't know what to DO. & I can't decide if it'd be better for CLS to reject me so I don't have to make the decisions or not...blah.
Wait... I don't think CLS is ugly. I mean, the building itself is not awesome, but it's not terrible either, from what I remember. The library is kind of lame, but I would just study in the main library instead (this is feasible, no?). And the overall campus is fantastic, at least in my opinion. I went to UG at a really urban campus without any quad or central element, and to me Columbia's campus is the opposite of that, and has some really stunning buildings that I'd get to walk by every day. Why do people think it is so ugly?
