I'm from the South and I intend to stay there, but when I applied, Seton seemed enticing because of it's proximity to New York City and I felt like varying up my locations a bit.

I'm still waiting on scholarship information. I was admitted right before Christmas, so I'm not expecting that right now.

There are nice and bad parts in every state. Newark is bad. You do not want.

That's what I've heard from a couple people now. I don't think I could handle it haha. As of now, Seton's not in my top choices even with a moderate scholarship so I'll probably be withdrawing very soon.

was wondering the same. at the very least could "reverse splitter" be replaced with "don't want to retake" in the thread title.

ETA: I really don't want to derail your thread, so please get back to doing your thing, and I wish you the best of luck, I just had to do this because its a cause I really care about, and its an option that future lurkers might benefit from seeing. Thanks!

Is everyone planning on going this cycle? I'm T14 or bust so most likely I'll be sitting out and retaking.

I am. I could retake, but with working full time and knowing my own history of retaking standardized exams, I know it's not worth raising my stress levels again. Good luck to you!

I am seriously considering taking June and seeing what happens. If I go up, negotiate for more scholly money (or if I go up +3 or more, sit out and reapply), if I go down, it shouldn't hurt me.

Good luck!
