wow, it seems like a lot of people are taking Stanford over Yale on here. You, BioEBear and CardinalsRule are 3 I can think of.


RainbowChip and Marbletop did as well, according to LSN.

I think Marbletop used to be fairly active on here. Not sure what happened to her.

180.

what's really funny about that article is that it appears in the New Yorker, which , I believe, publishes a lot of Rosetta Stone ads. I wonder how that worked out for them, making fun of their own advertisers.

Personally, I liked

Are you aware that stalking a supermodel without her consent is a violation of Italian law?

Lei è consapevole che infastidire una top model senza il suo consenso è una violazione della legge italiana?

I ran into a bunch of people at the ASW that are probably going to make that decision. Not that I blame them. Stanford's a great place and were my interests elsewhere I'd likely have done the same. FWIW I also heard from several people that they ran a more convincing ASW.

N.B. that I'm not picking on you, but the general Yale or bust attitude on the internet:

Both schools (and almost certainly others, but I can't speak to them because my cycle is so bafflingly uneven) are so wonderful that one should go where one is likely to be the happiest (thus producing the best work). The non-curricular differences between Yale & Stanford are so well-defined and nontrivial (contra curricular differences) that it's not (or shouldn't be) terrifically surprising to see any one individual choose one in lieu of the other.

kthanks :wink:


I'll try to compose something later. But in short, the weather was great and I had fun. Some of the lectures and panels were a bit uneven but the actual classes I visited were quite interesting. The law school building itself is very cool. Laughably fake gothic, but in an awesome sort of way. New Haven had better food than I expected.

The current students were what sold me on the whole thing. Almost everybody was doing something really interesting with their life and people all had exciting ideas to talk about. Discussions weren't as curricula-centered as they were at other schools. It was more about "here's what I'm really interested in" or "here's what I'm doing with my life." I found that to be quite welcoming.

Mailed my deposit. See you folks next year ... unless my deposit gets lost. I hardly trust a rusty roadside mailbox in rural Louisiana with the most important piece of mail of my life.

Yeah I'm paranoid about something going wrong with my mail too. By the way, anyone know when the financial aid acceptance deadline is? I can't remember whether it's May 3rd or May 15th.

Just send 'em a quick email. I was overseas last year, and I'm emailed them to confirm it was on its way. It sounded like they just need to know for waitlist purposes, not the formality of having the check in hand.
