Just submitted! I wasn't going to until the admissions predictor website told me I had a slightly stronger chance at Stanford than Harvard or Yale (higher relative GPA compared to LSAT). At the very least, I will be out $112.

Straight from what I heard from Stanford --
They don't weight it heavily, sometimes won't even remember where you're from unless you mention it in in your PS. Geographic diversity is a factor, but it won't hurt you. It can help, though, I'm sure.

Tons of people want to be in CA, and when they get there, they usually stay.

Submitted on Nov 2nd. No status checker email yet. Wonder when it would become complete...
I actually had LORs and Transcripts completed way before I submitted the application.

Wow... just came to the realization that Stanford only accepts ~350-360 people a year. I really, really hope those rumors about them focusing more on LSAT are true.

I read Dean Deal's blog. Seems nothing has changed. Good for me. I do not want to retake. Hope my 4.0 from Stanford will help cover the low LSAT.

I've been gearing myself up to hopefully live in New York, but... yeah, I think I could "settle" for Palo Alto ;)

Haha... I've only been there once, for a week, seven years ago. It was fun. Living there, though... definitely a daunting prospect. I suspect I'd find things a lot easier in CA, but I think I'd be happier in NY. It would be a tough choice for me (if by luck and the grace of the adcomms I actually have the opportunity to make the choice myself!)

I'll put the over/under for number of times I get mugged a week if I end up in NYC at 5.

Obviously I want you to get into Stanford because you loooove it (and they'll love you!), but seriously. As long as you're not stumbling around alone late at night, you'll be fine.

NYC is kind of weird in that the only main places that are really stereotypical NYC are like the areas near times square/chinatown/broadway (Lower Manhattan I guess its called). These are the areas closer to NYU.. around there its super crowded, the people are rude, its loud, etc. The rest of NYC isnt so bad. I actually dont mind the Columbia area (Washington Heights/Upper Manhattan). It is a lot calmer and quieter. Plus, you are close to a bunch of minority neighborhoods where you can get really cheap food..

Of course Im black and from one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S. so my point of view may be skewed. Definitely dont listen to the people who tell you that Morningside Heights is super dangerous though.. Definitely false.

Times Square/Broadway : midtown. Not really close to NYU. Closer to NYU than Columbia but not close. Chinatown is dirty and rundown. Uptown near Central Park is nice, Columbia is definite more pleasant (to me) than NYU. I wouldn't consider NYC to be not safe at all, just for the fact that there are always soooo many people around. And there are all kinds of people from everywhere at anytime, no one will stand out and appear a target. The same can't be said about some of the most dangerous areas in this country. Usually if you stand out in anyway, you are more of a potential target.

NYU is located in Greenwich which is an awesome area. Its relatively far from the tourist areas of NYC (e.g. Times Square/Broadway, Chinatown, etc) and there is always something going on. NYC really isn't that dangerous, so long as you use your common sense and don't go wandering alone into well-known bad areas at strange hours of the night. The nice thing about NYC is that if you live in Greenwich, Midtown, Chelsea, Union Square, even the Upper East Side, there's a lot of people around late into the night so getting back home is really not that dangerous.

Plus NYC has everything you could ever really want, food and entertainment wise.

Yea I figured everybody in this thread would be applying to NYU and Columbia so I just defined everything in terms of distance from those schools. I dont love NYC like a lot of people but I could definitely see myself enjoying Columbia.

After living in Queens, then in New Brunswick while working in the city, I came to realize that I can get everything I ever really want from elsewhere for about 50% of price or less. We still have family in Bronx and Queens/Jackson Heights, but a weekend visit is about what I can take of NYC at this point. But I know millions of people love NYC, I can understand why, just not for me. I love driving/riding and hate subways/public trans.
