Being held with you makes me feel much better about my chances.

And there are like two Starbucks in the whole city, and the good Filene's Basement closed down so now all that's left is the bougie one that doesn't do the discounts based on when the item came in, and it doesn't have the bins full of dirt-cheap Sportsacs that the old one had. Not that that stuff matters. I would still go to Columbia even if stupid Boston had all the Starbucks and cheap Sportsacs in the world.

In summary, please don't yield protect me Columbia!! There is no need!


pretty amazing rant. I agree that you should send it as your LOCI. I'll trade you my CLS acceptance for the HLS one that you're inevitably going to get. deal? I'll also toss in my everlasting <3 <3 <3 on the side

Kronk/V6 (Kronk6?), what was the reason behind the name change?

He's needlessly paranoid.


i don't understand this. how does it protect/preserve your anonymity to change your screen name? it's not like it deletes any of your old posts, it's still all the same shit. what am I missing?

I'm thinking parts of my app may be screaming NYU>CLS (TFA, PI focus, address in clear NYU territory...)

Regardless, I'm a median candidate for CLS, so it seems 50/50 for me.

My app was very PI-focused, too. I mentioned CLS's specific PI programs/efforts in my PS & LOCI, so I hope this doesn't detract from my app.

Nothing today as usual. But that goes without saying, because if I had actually gotten a VCE, I'd be shouting it from the rooftops in joy.

How does NYC's dim sum compare to Hong Kong's? It'd be nice to have access to some delicious har gow and char siu bao on the East Coast!

I am a bad judge on those particular metrics, because I don't eat very much meat and haven't been to Hong Kong. However, in terms of diversity of restaurants, diversity of menu offerings, and tastiness of vegetable-based dishes, I would say New York is the clear leader on the east coast. It also has by far the best vegetarian dim sum (blasphemy and bizarreness, I know), including this one place that has mung bean soup, which I have never seen in another restaurant, which is sad because I can never make mine taste as good. And if one place is undelicious, there are a million others to try.

The Washington DC area has damn good dim sum and Chinese food, arguably better than New York City's. Though maybe I'm wrong. But it absolutely has the best Vietnamese food on the East Coast. Too bad there isn't a top six school in DC. Not that I want to live so close to my parents anyway.

Edit: I want my stupid vomit-covered envelope!

Do these restaurants have seafood and/or egg dishes, or are the dishes basically for vegans? I'm guessing that there is a variety of restaurants for this.

Vegetarian dim sum seems sacrilegious, but I am very, very intrigued.

I guess I have to go visit DC a few times for Vietnamese and maybe Chinese!

Yup. I had it looked over by a couple other people too. If you think it's going to get me rejected though, I'd rather we didn't discuss it on this board. I don't think this personal statement will hurt me at all; it's just about my background in humor and how I want to go into comedy politics.

Yeah, I sort of took a hiatus from TLS once I realized I wasn't going to hear from anywhere but NYU in December or January. My Chicago WL yesterday was the first shoe to drop of the rest. I'm expecting to learn my fate at Columbia, Michigan, Northwestern, Virginia, and Georgetown all in the next week or so.

As Kronk once said (back when he was V6), 'I'll take the envelope even if it's covered in actual vomit' :)

Nothing for me from CLS today, but it's not mailtime yet so who knows. I'm guessing I won't get anything today either.
