Michigan law is trying really hard to be hip. They just sent me an email with this:

"...as of a few days ago, you haven’t sent us anything at all. What the what?"

Lol, it's just part of their strategy, I think. All of their emails are pretty casual and arguably humorous.

Is it a bad idea to withdraw an application before getting a decision?

I would assume yes, if it can feasibly used as a FinAid bargaining chip.

Meh, I'm not sure. They're known for giving out a lot of money, which would make me think they're not a good bargaining chip.

wustl? only reason to withdraw is if you don't want to interview. nothing wrong with a practice interview, even if you don't care. and who knows - maybe a full ride to wustl could persuade you. its a really pretty school! lol

Could just be another point in your case when all of CCN finally says yes to you (rooting for ya), but honestly it feels like you're not waiting out because either:
a) you think this school (I assume WUSTL) will give you a full ride, or close, and you don't want to be tempted away from your better admits, or
b) you just want the cycle to be the that much closer to over.

If it's a) and you're not debt-averse, go ahead and withdraw. If you are debt-averse, it honestly couldn't hurt to let it lie.
If it's b) then I feel you, but maybe just wait til all your other schools give you a reply? It won't prolong your cycle that way, and you can just (hopefully) put it out of your mind in the meanwhile.

Jumping back to computer questions:

People buying a new comp for school, when are you planning to make the purchase?

I think I'm going to get the Surface; I want the computer to be new to hopefully last through all three years, but I don't want to still be getting used to it during class.

I also don't know if I want to wait for the new edition, which will probably have months of problems but will also have the longest expected useful life.

This question is definitely not brought on by a tax refund burning a hole in my pocket...

Anyone not buying a new laptop? My 2011 MacBook Pro works fine, it just has some dings. I might just toss some more ram in that beesh and call it good.

I have no idea how old mine is, but it is a lenovo thinkpad e420. I got it for free after I finished work on a campaign. I have used it forever, but I do not even know how to access the administrator profile :lol: . I think it is time.

I'm keeping mine. Granted, my laptop was stolen TWICE during undergrad, so my computer is still relatively new (got it in the Fall of 2013), and I have the Macbook Pro with retina disply and a SSD, so it's pretty light (not as light as the Air, but definitely lighter than the previous Macbooks).
