I don't have these fancy NYU and UVA acceptances y'all have haha...just a nice scholly from Vandy which I will test out this weekend.

I thought the students were awesome, to be honest. It could also have been the particular students I was around for the weekend, but I found everyone to be really engaging and so enthusiastic about their decision. Nobody second guessed their choice. My host was a quality guy.

I hope that doesn't make ME the pretentious one :| :)


Well you can always count on the current Penn guy :lol:


I thought you were considering UVA and Berk?

Yes I am considering, not withdrawing. I did withdraw from Michigan, and probably Duke in a min.

Seriously! Visiting is SO IMPORTANT. Which is why I'm not deciding anything until after all of my visits...because seriously, an ASW can tell you SO MUCH that you can never find out through TLS alone.


What's left for you? I'm hitting Harvard in two weeks so I don't have to wonder what if?


I'm down to UVA and Chicago, and Chicago's ASW is this Thursday! Eep!

And Pereira, you will still have azn who is equally sulky that we're abandoning him :(

I think different things just click with different people. Be sure to pet the goat for me :)

Yup ASW1 for UVA, and Berkeley this weekend. I guess I will deliberate next week. I guess we will discuss next week. I want to know how your Vandy trip goes.

Haha honestly if I had other schools to check out who knows what would have happened. I had an odd cycle, to say the least. I'm excited that the one school I got accepted to in the upper ranks is also a school I enjoyed visiting.

Azn better hope Vandy doesn't sway me!

Last night he told me he was 60/40 in favor of Penn. But it's a tough choice, especially since Michigan will probably be cheaper for him (I hope I'm not outing anything confidential, azn! :lol:).

The fact that I'm attending should be enough reason for people to mail in their deposits. :P

I for one LOVED the Penn people I met! That was definitely not a factor in my not choosing Penn. :D

Er, have fun at Harvard? Seriously though, I had a good time at Penn, and I'm glad to see the myth about no free booze was just that. ASW hardly sealed my decision, it's just good to have that experience in mind as I head to Chicago this weekend.

Sorry to see people are abandoning ship on you! I'll have to try Hyde Park out and get back to you on my leanings.

Yeah same. But when I spoke with the Financial Aid office and Dean Post, they hinted at a ballpark dollar figure to try to close the gap with my Mich scholly. If it comes through, I'm totally there :)

If it doesnt.... :(

I didn't notice that much pretension, but...

1) Maybe I wasn't looking for it hard enough.
2) Maybe I'm so used to pretentious people that I can only spot the most blatant examples (this is very possible given where I grew up and went to high school).
3) Maybe I'm pretentious myself.

:?

I don't know if you'll find less pretension at Harvard, but I wish you the best of luck all the same. You have some mighty fine options to choose from, slax.

Here's to indecision 25 days before the deposit deadline!

Still waiting on a make-or-break need-based fin aid decision. :|

Is anyone else in at Penn considering the terrible retake, reapply duo?
