That's what it sounds like. I guess this will be highlighted at the ASW. Penn is finishing on a new building too, I know they are competing hard.
So is Harvard, UMichigan and Stanford. UMichigan has a site including a virtual video tour and their new building looks insanely nice. Harvard's looks pretty good too but they dont have as much info up. I believe Stanford's new building is mostly just offices and maybe clinic space but no academic areas.
More than the cold hard crest of H?
Harvard has actually been, shockingly, insanely warm. I get emails from them congratulating, collecting data, and giving more info all the time. They even give you a Harvard e-mail address with your admit pack.
