I've played Red, but I caddied for my buddy when he played a high-stakes skins game on Black. That track is unreal to walk.

There is no better way to spend a weekend when the weather is this nice out. Never played BPB, but it's on my bucket list.

Oh, I am not awesome. I taught myself (I've played volleyball since I was 12 so I figured it was kind of similar, and you don't need to round up as many people). But it's the best on summer days :-)

Does anyone know if the Fordham deposit HAS to be by check? Can I put it on a credit card?

The $20,000/yr is what I would have gotten if I had applied full time, and I think he just overlooked that I applied part time.

I just want to be able to graduate without debt and my job offered to pay salary plus part of the tuition if I do part time. I want Fordham to pay the rest of the tuition and maybe a bit more.

If they don't give me at least $15,000/yr part time, I'm going to UPenn.

sounds like the right call. that way, you'll have time to give all of your time and attention to your ivy league studies!

So, are you thinking UVA??? or taking the Fordham money?

NYU needs to get back to us pronto... or not, I'll wait forever for both NYU and Columbia if it means an acceptance... at least I'll hear from Columbia within two or three weeks


Edit: Dean Brown just wrote back to say it was a typo. It's $20,000 per year for four years - total of $80,000.

i'm thinking Fordham because of the money and the fact that my husband and i would be able to stay in brooklyn/he'd be able to keep his job. it will kill me to withdraw from UVA though. :(

all of that is meaningless if i get into nyu (or cls, of course), though!! i'm rooting for you!

Congrats on the money!

Question: If Penn is not an option due to financial reasons, why are NYU and Columbia options? I ask because I'm in a similar spot - I'm on hold at CLS and if they admit me life becomes confusing wrt quitting my job (not that I'm holding my breath for an acceptance). Is it just that the added prestige of these >>> Penn and is worth taking on debt/opportunity cost of working?

Penn is not an option because of its location. I just bought a house that I am in love with, and my family's here (not like a husband and kids, but my parents and siblings... we're super tight and even though my 'rents have their own place, they still live with me most of the year because we're actually THAT close). I wouldn't like to be without that support system.

I have my job here, which is nice. Columbia's always been my dream ever since I went there undergrad. NYU is amazing for tax law, which is what I want to do (the joint J.D./L.L.M. would be incredible). Here's hoping!

I need to decide where to put down my deposit now while those two make their minds up. Looks like it will be Fordham!!

Gotcha! I totally get it - GULC/GWU/GMU/AU/Catholic (jesus, why is every well/decently well regarded PT program in DC...?) PT are not options for me for similar reasons - my whole life is in NYC, and I need to get back up there and out of DC.

Best of luck with CLS and NYU, but if not we're still both going to be in great hands at Fordham :).

Remember, though, that sibley isn't married so that changes things a little. But not that much, because love is love :) .

Wow, brave soul willing to move to the South! Grew up there, wouldn't go below northern Virginia for a million dollars... :-)


I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'm from Queens and went to UVA for undergrad and it was awesome. WAHOOWAH!


I also have limited ability to remain neutral on the subject of UVA, though I have only visited. I loved it. I mean, I really loved it. It's hard to imagine a school with friendlier people or a better quality of life, and I say this as one supremely attached to my own school and my beloved city. I had a wonderful time down there, and if I were an applicant, I would seriously consider it. I really want to visit again.

EDIT: though of course Hannah should come to Fordham. :D
