Maybe the prestigious undergrad and work experience theory about Columbia named scholarships is true?

If I don't get a scholarship, this theory will make sense for me too. I was reading last year's Chicago thread and a lot of people reporting Rubys didn't get a Butler/Hamilton, so at least that is still a possibility for those of us above both 75ths!

Any Lord of the Rings fans out there? I was thinking we could decide which race each school would be - don't worry this is PC. Men, Elves, Dwarves, Wizards, Hobbits, Orcs, Ents, Giants, Goblins, etc.

Who isn't a LOTR fan? This is harder than Harry Potter houses though. Hmm...

Also, Congrats to all the new admits!

Never - it's out of your hands at this point.

I'm not religious, but this prayer/saying I was taught in my youth always seems appropriate at these times:

God (Allah, Buddha, Brahman, Science, whoever), grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Weirdly, I've actually never seen LOTR, other than the first one that I fell asleep watching when it came out when I was like 13 years old.

Men - NYU

Dwarves - Chicago (I mean, c'mon, they have the Rubies)
Wizards - Yale ("A wizard is never late. He arrives precisely when he means to.")
Hobbits - Michigan

Orcs - Arizona Summit
Giants - Florida Coastal
Goblins - Cooley

Me either. I've seen the Hobbit parts 1&2 and I liked them, so maybe I'll try LOTR one day.
