Eh.Their burgers suck win and their fries and shakes are AMAZING. Don't even bother with the burger. Eat the burger!
Also, let me know if you need any food/drink tips. I've been living here for almost 2 years so I have a good sense of the city.


I've been here 2.5 years. People will always debate the various, and great, burger joints here. I guess it's a matter preference. I like them all (BGR, Ray's, 5 guys, Shake Shack, Good Stuff) but they are different. IMHO none of them suck.

Edit: Since i've been here .5 years longer, let me know if you need any food/drink tips Doorkeeper. :P


Oh, for some reason I thought you were still in UG. My mistake. haha.

Also, BGR and Ray's are the best imo. The fries and shakes are great at Good Stuff, and the shakes are great at Shake Shack, but their fries are horrible.


I was a little underwhelmed by BGR. It wasn't bad, don't get me wrong, but maybe I shouldn't have gotten the one with foie gras and all that jazz. If you were gonna push, I'd say Rays is the best.

And yes, good stuff or 5 guys = best fries.


The burger can be on the dry side, but their Cuban is amazing (ham, pork chop, and a burger). Plus, their sweet potato fries are the best I've had.

Also, Harvard needs to get to the holds on Tuesday. JS2s on Monday.

harvard will give the rest of us an answer before getting to the holds i assume? or at least at the same-ish time?

Foie gras is the shiz.

I'm sure JS will get to you guys in the next hour or so. So you too will feel the burning of your soul as you spend your whole paycheck on Sperrys and Brooks Brothers in an effort to look Harvard-y. (Actually, I did it just because I have no soul.)

Has anyone had any experience with calling and inquiring about when their decisions might be made, after they've received an offer from somewhere else? I know in Canada it works pretty well for us, calling and letting them know that we've got to make a decision somewhere else, but I'm not sure how Harvard would feel about that...

I think in the hold email they encourage you to inform them of your other deadlines. I think it won't hurt to make a call, unless you just submitted your app right before the deadline.

How about a LOCI? I've been UR since the end of January and want to update them about a work promotion I got, but don't want to be too pushy.

I don't think there is anything wrong with updating your resume.

Congrats Byzantine! JS knew how badly you deserved it and decided to take time out of her Saturday just for that reason.

I'm Canadian too! (Became a dual citizen by naturalizing in the US last month.) And congrats crystalized.

It must be our immense sex appeal.
