Believe me I am fully aware that since I have geographic limitations and decided to stay close to my significant other it will be very difficult. As long as you acknowledge that this is not an Emory specific problem rather a problem from the top 10 on down with things being much easier for the schools toward the top of that list. While I personally will not be paying sticker, I can see the rational that someone who is less debt averse than I would want to take on such a risk. My issue was with what I saw as a direct attack on a school that seemed unprovoked, but to me it seems that you realize this is a problem everywhere.
Dude, all the schools I got into aren't worth sticker - I broke the T14, but only with Cornell which is insanely f$#%ing expensive. If I am a little bitter, and bash all the schools that let me in, it is because my view of my future is rather dismal.
That was exactly my ceiling, and there is no way I am spending 50,000 a year to freeze my ass off in Ithaca. But I can see how if someone hit this incredible reach, maybe sticker might be the right move for them. On the whole, and for myself personally I disagree. Sorry for pushing this thread off topic.
