Title: Columbia vs. waiting for NYU, et al
Post by: 1L2004 on March 06, 2004, 08:34:33 PM
I'm pretty happy about CLS but NYU and Stanford (an outside chance) are still out there. Any comments on whether I should just go to CLS and get in on the ground floor with good housing and peace-of-mind or wait it out with NYU (which will just create one hell of a dilemma if I get in)...great appreciation to any responders.

I'm currently at NYU - #'s are 3.5/169 with excellent recs from faculty heavyweights, interships and the essay-of-my-life (i.e. it didn't include the fast-typing mistakes of my first post). I've seen all the schools I applied to except BC.  The CLS campus is an eye-sore (compared to the rest of the school) but functional ...NYU is nice, classic and welcoming and has a shiny new building.
