I'd be happy to have that bone be picked in the Goat lounge this August, if Penn would only allow it...

The sheer number and volume of the profanities I'll spew require that conversation to take place elsewhere, probably the pub across the street.

Really? She could've made a blind guess...like Penn is in, oh I dunno, Pennsylvania? ;)

I dont think she knows about Pennsylvania... Some people just dont keep up with the states because there is just so many of them!

Almost everyone I talk to thinks that Penn is Penn State, of course.  I find it's a fine line whether or not to correct them-- it kind of seems snotty, and if they think it's Penn State, they probably haven't heard of UPenn anyway.;)

On another note, shouldn't there be a Penn '10 facebook group?  Better get on that m1!

Yea that Penn St. thing happens all the time... 

But I like that fact that only some people know the difference between UPenn and Penn St.  It’s like Penn is such an elite institution only those of a superior character know about the school. 

It also helps you to weed out people.  There are those that know about Penn (people of superior moral standing) and those that do not  (I refer to them as the “unwanted”).  In the unfortunate situation that you run into an “unwanted”- cautiously proceed to the nearest exit because they can become very dangerous when provoked! 

I am just playing.

I knew a kid in HS who insisted that Penn was a Catholic School. I didn't know whether to laugh at him or feel sorry for him... He also thought he'd get into Princeton on a Marching Band scholarship, despite the fact that he wasn't in a marching band, and the fact that Princeton doesn't care enough (oh and the fact that he wasn't even close to getting in numbers-wise)....

My point: Smart people know that Penn is an Ivy League in PA. Don't worry about the people who don't.

I'm tagging this even though I'm still undecided. Going to see the on-campus housing this weekend, though it worries me how everyone at the school refers to them as the "dorms".

after talking to me, your decision will melt away, i promise!

i'll bribe you with bubble tea!

Hey, did anyone here get their Fin aid info from Penn? If so, did they not include your merit scholarships in their calculations?

I haven't heard anything from them, but I am hoping that they do have some sort of merit/need calculation because my merit award was so small and sad.  My merit money needs some friends...

I hope they give me need money, so I dont have to take down my pen :-\!
Title: Re: University of Pennsylvania Class of 2010
Post by: dancerina on April 12, 2007, 08:49:05 AM
Thanks, Period. I actually meant in the fin aid breakdown, did they calculate in your merit scholarship as well. I just got mine, and it breaks down exactly how much i'd need to take out in loans based on the needs-based I've been given, but makes no mention of my merit scholarship.

Either way, my decision just became a little harder. I wasn't expecting any needs-based at all.

my merit money was calculated in there.. as well as my need
maybe call them to make sure all is well

yeah.. its really pretty amazing.

the Reading terminal farmers market is really cool too. the amish pretzels there are life-changing.

from page 2 of http://www.nationalgeographic.com/traveler/features/philly0510/philly.html

"I'M HANGING WITH CHEF Martin Hamann of the Four Seasons Fountain restaurant. We're strolling Reading Terminal Market—open since 1892 and housed beneath the terminus of a railroad made famous by the Monopoly game.... The market below is now a gourmet free-for-all filled with hubbubbing shoppers and stalls bulging with everything from caviar to Amish donuts...

"Move it, big guy," a vendor wheeling crates of oranges yells at me good-naturedly. I jump back. The bustle around here is exhilarating."

Ok, because I've been posting in the CLS thread a bunch and have to keep my loyalties divided, I must say that the Reading Terminal Market seems amazing!  The produce was uber-cheap, and there were lots of nifty restaurant/fast-food places too.  (Although most were closed when I was there!)  +1 Penn...at least when I move to CC and can shop there regularly...

NYU was okay, everything was nice and the city was amazing, but for some reason I left with a bland taste in my mouth.  I don't really know why.  I haven't decided for sure; I wasn't able to talk to the Dean of Financial Aid, but she said that she would read my email and talk to me about it.  Even if I were to get some money I just don't know if I would choose NYU over Penn.  About a month ago I would have, but not anymore.  I'm not sure about my decision, but I'm going to think it over and if I keep feeling this way then I'll probably withdraw from NYU soon and send in my deposit for Penn.

I've had a weird cycle.

Ok, because I've been posting in the CLS thread a bunch and have to keep my loyalties divided, I must say that the Reading Terminal Market seems amazing!  The produce was uber-cheap, and there were lots of nifty restaurant/fast-food places too.  (Although most were closed when I was there!)  +1 Penn...at least when I move to CC and can shop there regularly...

as long as there is no evil empire paraphernalia left behind, Ill let you use my car too

At this rate, I'll be too ashamed to show the evil empire paraphernalia. :-\ 

*mutters to self about lack of pitching*

Saja! What is this madness. Please stop referring to the wonderful Yankees by that ridiculous name penned by the bitter!

It's still really early in the season, besides.

Hi all fellow Penn people. I got my meager Cornell scholarship info today, clinching Penn for me and I'm learnin all the native Philly talk today in preparation.

I like your optimism!  I wonder if we can get funding for a Yankees baseball club.;)

I guess I should post on here some.  How's everybody doing?

rusty!!!

how was NYU? have you decided yet?

NYU was okay, everything was nice and the city was amazing, but for some reason I left with a bland taste in my mouth.  I don't really know why.  I haven't decided for sure; I wasn't able to talk to the Dean of Financial Aid, but she said that she would read my email and talk to me about it.  Even if I were to get some money I just don't know if I would choose NYU over Penn.  About a month ago I would have, but not anymore.  I'm not sure about my decision, but I'm going to think it over and if I keep feeling this way then I'll probably withdraw from NYU soon and send in my deposit for Penn.

I've had a weird cycle.

you sound intelligent and reasonable. definitely come to penn.

He is. Y'all'll have fun arguing about cheesesteaks, I'm sure.

Thanks Dash, although my palate is not accustomed to cheesesteaks so I'll probably eat whichever everyone else says is best.  I will tell all who can hear, however, my love for Tex-Mex, and how it's the greatest thing in the world.

Also I love the "Y'all'll".  Genius.

Radioface, thanks for the kind words.  I look forward to meeting you.

Anything in Rittenhouse Sq, 2400, the Left Bank, Domus...if you really want something cool, look at the brownstones on Delancey and around 23rd/24th street.  All of those are really, really awesome.

Um, I'll be turning 30 while in Law school. Is that seriously over the hill? Good thing I've decided to start going backwards and will actually turn 26 this year.

ooh so we'll be the same age during half of our 2L/3L year, if i decide to go forward of course.

i wish i could be 17 again i liked that age. good thing happened at 17. 18, ehhh....19, not bad, 20, ehh - 21, pretty good and 22, pretty good so far.

Awww, y'all do sound like you're going to have an amazing class at Michigan.  My husband's field of work doesn't really exist in Michigan, though, so that extra $25k of money would have to support both of us (plus dog) for three years.  Fortunately I loved Penn in person just as much as I loved Michigan on paper.  :)

Silly, you'll be in a sea of Phillies fans. And since Philly fans generally root for underdogs, it is my understanding that the Sox are more well-liked than the Evil Empire. Even if the Yanks are overrepresented on LSD, you'll find much succor and support among the rest of your class and certainly in Philly itself.

This thread needs some serious padding.  And the best way to do that is through discussing such hard hitting topics as eating locations in Philadelphia, how to keep warm in those God forsaken Northern climes, and Penn's overall awesomeness.  Feel free to discuss any other Super Serious topic that needs to be raised.



And go!

Here's a serious topic: are there any other Red Sox fans lurking here, or am I going to be alone in a crowd of yankee people??

Also, m1, congrats on your scholarship!!  Would you mind PMing me the details?

Silly, you'll be in a sea of Phillies fans. And since Philly fans generally root for underdogs, it is my understanding that the Sox are more well-liked than the Evil Empire. Even if the Yanks are overrepresented on LSD, you'll find much succor and support among the rest of your class and certainly in Philly itself.

If that's true, then the Texas Rangers must be Philadelphia's most popular team!

Also Super Serious Question #3:  Should I go to an Eagles game and root for the Cowboys, and if I do, would anyone else be willing to join me?

Heck yeah, I'm a Cowboys fan.  We're America's Team.  So that's one, anyone else want to run the gauntlet and come to a game with us?

As I said, I just don't like baseball.  I find it rather...boring.  Besides, who can possibly enjoy a sport that is 162billion games long?  I would think that many games makes the entire first 3/4ths of the season meaningless

PSA:
since my family are immigrants from a country that basically has no idea what baseball is, i never found out about the sport until i was 13, so i have no real loyalties.

and i want to inform you all that my team loyalties are for SALE!!!!! (to the highest bidder, of course).

the deal will involve me attending all of the baseball games with you and becoming a "rabid fan" who throws popcorn on the field. I will possibly entertain the thought of running on the field in my underwear a la Super Bowl, but serious bribery would have to be involved.

This seems like proper grounds for disowning a child. Well, we'll have a good time insulting each other during RedSox/Yankee games I'm sure.

I live with a group of roommate who are split exactly 50/50 Yankees-Redsox.  Those games are always entertaining, although they certainly strain the relationships between everyone.  This Friday (Saturday?) should be interesting...

Enh, if they had ever taken me to games growing up instead of making them "boys only" events, it might not have happened.  Instead, four years of going to Fenway changed me forever.

Pookie be like me and support the Texas Rangers.  Sure we might choke after the All Star Break and our pitching might be horrible, but someday we might win a World Series, and then it'll be all worth it.  


Also If some of you have qualms about going to the Cowboys game because you don't like rooting for the Cowboys, then just go to root against the Eagles.  Problem Solved.

Cowboys=America's Team, that's a proven fact, so logically it follows that if you don't like the Cowboys, then you don't like America.

Not nearly as large as Cowboys fans in their own state...hooooooly sheet.  I went down there for the Thanksgiving day game 2 years ago.  I have always wondered where the stats about 65% of the US population being overweight and 35% being obese come from.  That day, I found out- they come from Texas.  Ho momma, those were some large individuals.

And no, YOU suck for not coming to Penn.  And for hating freedom.

(Notice the lack of emoticon)

And Pookie, why not the Phillies?  If you're loyalty free, you gotta go with the Phillies.  The rest of the world can fight over the Red Sox and the Yankees, but pulling for the Phillies almost proves you've lived there.

in the next edition ill give my favorite BYOs. Ok... I cant help myself. wait til you guys go to lolita... BYOT (tequilla) with assortment of fresh squeezed marg mixes. gourmet mexican fusion. phenomenal. bring a bottle of patron and life is good

Also, I'm going to need a review of Osteria. I don't have the cash to get near Vetri, but I'm hoping to swing this for a b-day dinner when I go home. (Or I'll go to El Vez like I always do and hog the guacamole. MMMMMMMM.)

Radio - You have a cowboy hat?  I don't even have a cowboy hat.  Don't get me wrong, I am a country boy, but those things cost too damn much.

Also, Once I decided that I'd be coming to the Northeast for Law School I considered wearing the whole drugstore cowboy outfit, complete with a ten gallon hat, tight, bright blue starched wranglers, gigantic belt buckle, and snakeskin sh*t-kickers (boots), for the first week of school and speak with a heavy Texan drawl and tell everyone about how we ride tumbleweeds and have shootouts at high noon.  And then after a week just drop the outfit and live the rest of the time normally.  But I'm not gonna do that, cause I'm not that mean, plus that's alot of work and I'm kinda lazy.

dont feel shame. some of his restaurants are amazing. ok... they all are. Im not a big fan of continental, thought the roof deck can be nice. he's opening a massive french bistro called Parc on rittenhouse square and a pub where angelinas used to be on chestnut. they wont suck. get your butt to Lolita asap.

rusty-- I have cowboy hat Ill wear to the first day of classes if it makes you feel comfortable ;)   

Radio - You have a cowboy hat?  I don't even have a cowboy hat.  Don't get me wrong, I am a country boy, but those things cost too damn much.

Also, Once I decided that I'd be coming to the Northeast for Law School I considered wearing the whole drugstore cowboy outfit, complete with a ten gallon hat, tight, bright blue starched wranglers, gigantic belt buckle, and snakeskin sh*t-kickers (boots), for the first week of school and speak with a heavy Texan drawl and tell everyone about how we ride tumbleweeds and have shootouts at high noon.  And then after a week just drop the outfit and live the rest of the time normally.  But I'm not gonna do that, cause I'm not that mean, plus that's alot of work and I'm kinda lazy.


hahah... that would be pretty sweet. yeah-- i have a cowboy hat. spent a couple of years skiing in utah and wyoming. picked it up there. traded a pair of skiboots for it. they were free. yeehaaw

onondaga lake is signifcantly more polluted than the hudson - it was once in the top 5 or 10 for most polluted lakes

8. come into class in last nights clothes Saja...oh wait  ;)

11. get in a bar fight rusty, inevitably with an eagles fan

TeamPam,

is LA as scary as it seems on TV? Whenever i think of LA, i think of massive breasts and umeployed actors/actresses.

yeah, i've never been to cali, i'll get around to that someday, but..i've been to vancouver, seattle and portland...beautiful places, i wouldn't mind ending up there someday

Yes and no.  It's definitely a weird place to be a woman, and there's a lot of crazy entitlement because so many people come here to be the superstars they just know they deserve to be (which I don't think happens anywhwere else but New York), and anyone who's been an assistant has stories that are straight out of Swimming wIth Sharks.  But there are also a ton of smart and interesting and kind people, both in and out of the industry, and the city has more history and culture than its given credit for, and nine months out of the year, the weather can't be beat.

The traffic, however, really is as bad as people say.  Maybe even worse.  My last gig was a reverse commute, and it still took over 35 minutes to go ten miles.

Hooray!!

re resturants-- heading to Osteria tonight. Mark vetri's new place on broad street.  and from another thread.. here is my lsit of best gastropubs. philly has amazing gastropubs:

for amazing beers and equally good food, be sure to check these out very soon upon arrival. In order of awesomeness: Monks (rittenhouse), North 3rd (Northern Liberties), Royal Tavern (Queen Village), Standard Tap (No.Lib), Black Sheep (rittenhouse), Grace Tavern (grad hospital area), Bishops Collar (fairmount), Nodding Head (15th+ sansom), Good Dog (rittenhousish) Ludwigs (gayborhood-- mostly on the lsit for the massive tubes of beer and brats).

I went to Good Dog as part of my bachelorette party and it was awesome.

I never get to Lolita because I always go to El Vez. I'm a slave to the Starr mystique. I know, I know. It's the great shame of my life. I also love the color drinks at Pod.

dont feel shame. some of his restaurants are amazing. ok... they all are. Im not a big fan of continental, thought the roof deck can be nice.

The Continental is the first place I've ever sent something back in my entire life.  Eggs Benedict should not be served ice cold.  After they were remade, though, they were pretty delicious.

New Mexico is a beautiful state.


Also I hear you about the New Mexican joke.  I work with a girl from Demingh, and we're constantly joking about the whole Texas-New Mexico thing.  That's like the Texas joke of why doesn't Texas fall into the Gulf of Mexico? Cause Oklahoma sucks.

Silly, you'll be in a sea of Phillies fans. And since Philly fans generally root for underdogs, it is my understanding that the Sox are more well-liked than the Evil Empire. Even if the Yanks are overrepresented on LSD, you'll find much succor and support among the rest of your class and certainly in Philly itself.

The Phillies have a "rivalry" with the Red Sox (who aren't an underdog at all), plus there is still anti-Boston bitterness over the 2005 Super Bowl...

Other than Boston transplants, I don't think you'll find too many Sox fans in Boston.

Eat 2,500-2,800 calories per day
DO NOT DO CARDIO!  It'll just ruin any strength you are building through your weightlifting

Monday
Squats 5x5 (for strength)
Stiff Legged Dead Lifts 3x10
Lunges 3x10

Wednesday
Bench press 5x5
Military press 3x10
Incline press 3x10

Friday
Deadlifts 5x5
Pull ups 3x10
Chin ups 3x10
Bent over rows 3x10

Tada!  By the time school starts you'll be able to easily shoulder all the books.  And please, don't give me the normal response of "I don't want to get all muscular and huge."  It takes an unbelievable amount of work and excessive eating to get big at all.

Nutrition plan-

Eat 5 meals a day, one every 2.5 to 3 hours.  Make sure you eat a good source of lean protein (chicken, turkey, lean beef, egg whites, protein shakes) at each of them.  To ensure that you get adequate protein for maximum strength gains, you want to eat 1 gram of protein/lb of bodyweight.

Fluid intake plan-

Drink 72-96oz of water each day.  On top of the benefits water provides your kidneys, it is also an extremely important part of body fat metabolism and proper cellular energy utilization.  More concisely, if you are dehydrated, you won't be able to work out with the intensity required to see maximum strength gains.  The additional water is also very important when consuming extra protein as recommended above because of the additional strain the extra protein (actually, its the nitrogen that gets released when the protein is broken down, but thats a minor point) puts on your kidneys.

Oh, yes, I remember the small meal dealie, m1.

I have to go back to the "firsts" list though, and add one of my own:

"Most likely to become the Towelie of Class of 2010"

I think you're well on your way. ;)

Haha yeah, thats where my Health Science minor comes in.  Penn's gym even offers an ACSM personal training certificate class, which I'll probably take at some point.  Training interests me, but sadly I don't follow my own advice often enough (case in point- I don't do a 5x5 program, time constrains prevent me from doing 5 meals a day, etc).

I'm getting antsy- I haven't lifted all week because of an injury on Friday last week.  I was going for a new personal best of 315lbs on my deadlift, but the bar slipped just a bit from a high point on my palm to a low one, and the diamond pattern on the bar tore off all the skin in between on both hands near the ring finger.  Ah the joys of lifting

I plan on asking for nothing but money for the next three years. Or maybe just asking people to contribute to a fund for my hair (pricey Japanese straightening).

I couldn't help but laugh but when it comes to my hair I take the expensive options as well.

Yea I know its cwazy. My HS doesn't ask for $$ (public) but I'm sure I'll give to it once I have $. I am only really happy that I have enjoyed so much my educational experiences thus far that I want to give back when I am able to. haha don't worry about it I won't hit you up for $, heck some of my apt mates haven't given, not everyone can or should.

The Terrible-Ivan weight-gain plan: finally decide where you are going to school. It'll drop your average heart rate by at least 10 beats per minute during waking hours (maybe more during sleeping hours), and you'll be sure to start storing reserves right away.

Seriously, my life is much different today than it was yesterday. Wow, with that decision behind me, what am I going to perseverate about for every minute of ev--What? Is that a piece of lint on my couch?

I was just teasin, ya know. But you can't turn into one of those CLS peeps who hates on Penn, for real. Though, I think we're an odd bunch for LSD, if any of us stick around next year we'll all have known each other on here for too long to seriously bash each other's schools (I hope).

Well, the people who pick Penn over CLS do it despite CLS being ranked higher and presumably better for job prospects, so they pick Penn for a reason. People who have made this choice seem willing to express why they did and usually they do have something negative to say about Columbia, but, let's face it, when you pick a school it usually is because there is something you didn't like about another option. I wouldn't say the student body goes around Columbia bashing all day!

Yesterday was nice.  For anyone who feels left behind and needs a review, we have discussed the following HARD HITTING SUPER SERIOUS topics:

1) Are there any other Red Sox fans lurking here? (AKA) What's your favorite Baseball Team?
2) Where is everyone looking to live?
3) Who want's to join me and m1 in running the Gauntlet and going to the Cowboys-Eagles Game?
4) Am I the only Texan in a sea of Yankees? (AKA) Where's everyone from?
5) Design a weight lifting program for Pookie (AKA) m1 tells you how to exercise
6) What's the 1L schedule like at Penn?
7) Which is better, Coke or Pepsi? (or Dr. Pepper?)

Feel free to post on any of these hard hitting topics.

Dash-- here is your long-awaited Osteria review

we actually hit up TWO of philly's finest new eating establishments last night.

first a warm-up at Tinto-- jose garces' (of Amada fame) new pintxtos place --like tapas but from the basque region of spain. on 20th and sansom. we shared probably 10 different things between 4 of us. highlights were defintiely the lamb skewers--  lamb loin and eggplant wrapped in bacon and served in shot glasses full of hot sweet onion cream and sherry jus; some shirred eggs with lobster and asparagus and oyster cream with cava; a great squid in ink dish; some kobe with poached egg and truffels and like 4 other things with truffels. I love truffels

a couple of bottles of great grenache blend.
defintiely going back to this place, as much as my wallet (or credit card) can handle

then on to osteria. which defintely does Vetri right-- makes sense considering it IS vetri. we went straight for the real deal since we already had a few courses earlier. started with Le Pizze "boscialo"-- bluefoot mushrooms, talelgio and tomato. Absolutely off the hook. Then I had a candele with wild boar bolognese and shared some other things--  mezzi rigatoni with radicchio and gorgonzola was phenomenal.
a bottle of vietti-- affordable and outstanding nebbiolo

then some amazing chocolate flan with pistacchio gelato and a glass of port.

in sum-- the 2 new places are great. not BYOs, so theyre not cheap either. but osteria is definitely more affordable than vetri. 

and suprisingly enough I dont have gout.

now... to the gym. or if it stops raining--a long-ass bikeride. m1-- does the above fit the training reminen?

rest of yous (youll soon learn 'yous')-- is your palate ready?

I'm a sox fan.

2) Where is everyone looking to live?
rittenhouse.  or a cheap brownstone

3) Who want's to join me and m1 in running the Gauntlet and going to the Cowboys-Eagles Game?
maybe...i'll have to buy a helmet first

4) Am I the only Texan in a sea of Yankees? (AKA) Where's everyone from?
I'm from MA/HI/DC, take your pick (i've lived the longest or have strongest ties in those three states

5) Design a weight lifting program for Pookie (AKA) m1 tells you how to exercise
lifting is over-rated.  endurance aerobics (ie distance running) is where it's at

7) Which is better, Coke or Pepsi? (or Dr. Pepper?)
seltzer water

Hi, All,

So, after a long and taxing decision process, I think that I've decided on Penn!  Yay!  Now I've just got to find a place to live!  Any suggestions on suburbs?  The reason I ask is because I'm thinking of buying a place, and all of the places in the city proper are probably out of my price-range.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in the fall!

SWEET! welcome.

there are some nice suburby options if you want to buy a place. east falls, mount airy and manayunk are the three key ones. but there are also some rapidly gentrifying and very cool neighborhoods around center city that you can find great options in too, e.g northern liberties and bella vista. if you arent going to buy, id recommend renting in rittenhouse, old city (near the market subway line) or art museum

Edit: I'm decided on Penn, but this is assuming that I get a rejection or waitlist letter from Harvard any day now.  An acceptance from there might shake things up a bit, but I'm not going to get my hopes up.  At any rate, I'm TOTALLY excited about Penn!  ;D

cool. feel free to post or PM me for any help. youll be suprised what you can buy in philly... especially compared with NY and DC. mt airy, manayunk and east falls are all about a 10 minute bikeride down the schuylkill, through fairmount park.

We're moving to the suburbs mostly so our kids have a safe yard and a good school. We started with Google Earth, turned on layers for school districts & school locations, mapped train stops, and then compared the locations with elementary school PSSA test scores from www.greatschools.net. Moving in the digital age > old-fashioned driving around town (well, we did do the driving-around eventually, but only after using Google/GreatSchools to narrow the field).

All I can say is train commute = study time + iPod relaxation.

I didn't look into NJ or south Philly...I stuck to northwest, north, and northeast. We ended up focusing on neighborhoods off R5/Thorndale past Bryn Mawr, R6/Norristown past Spring Mill, and R5/Doylestown,R2/Warminster,R2/Trenton past Elkins Park (we would have included other areas but prices ended up excluding them).

I flew into town two weeks ago to sign a lease for a place in University City (in the Penn Alexander district), but there were too many concessions (street parking, prices, open space, age of the townhouse, undergrad neighbors, cost of insurance, no washer/dryer in the unit, etc.).

OMG NORRISTOWN STAY AWAY...

Trust me. I've been to some real sketchy places, and Norristown is one of the sketchiest places...

The R5 runs on the Mainline, hence, anything reachable via the Mainline is pretty swanky.

I'm staying on every WL. Why not? I mean, if they eventually let me in I either get to turn them down, or...most likely that's the only option as I don't think people get any $$ off WL's, though that's not really confirmed.

I would easily take Penn with money over all of your waitlists.

Oh, and on top of that, I don't do sandwiches (yes, I'm an odd one).

I have never had a cheesesteak either.



this must change for both of you.  Cheesesteaks are amazing.  Geno's FTW

Geno's or Pat's? That's one choice that I don't look forward to make, it can make or break my Philly experience.

Tarantino's film, though enjoyable, just wasn't entertaining enough. I found myself bored the whole time. I realize that it was supposed to be a much slower pace, but nothing happened.

Rodriguez' film, on the other hand, was hilarious.

Of course, "Thanksgiving" was unquestionably the best part of the whole thing.

More accurately- boo group project papers that get dumped in one person's lap.  Whoever invented group projects for students was misguided, I have yet to find a group of people who efficiently divide the work load.  Sadly, from my experience, college students lack the maturity to handle them.

I don't think group projects are that bad.  Group papers are the worst though.  Unless it's a lab report or something science related it just doesn't make sense.  While work is usually dumped on one person, even if it wasn't the paper would suck.  People's writing styles are so different that if you try to delegate responsibility, it just sounds choppy and stupid.

I guess I should have mentioned its a group project in the sense that there were interviews and surveys to be conducted, but other than that (which is no different than any research assignment out of the library), its a group paper.  So we agree in a way  :)

maybe it's because you're getting some need-based Team Pam? just a thought. maybe if you call after the deposit deadline, some money wil free up?

thanks m1, i'm pretty thrilled, and i would've come to penn even if they offed me 5 dollars per year. well maybe that's an exaggeration but i talked it over with myself (i'm quite a good sounding board for myself i must admit...although it does freak out people to hear me talk to myself)...and i just liked penn so much more than other schools that i woudl've taken on extra debt to go.

and NOBODY answered my SUPER SERIOUS question yesterady

what about Penn/Philly excites you most?

c'mon...fine, i'll start. It thrills me to be going to a school with a sense of community but i also have the opportunity to venture outside of the law school world and meet other...non-law-student types

I think Penn has a different approach to need-based aid. Some non-trads with multiple digits on their 1040s get need-based aid (they're probably deserving...not my point) while no-wealth college grads get none.

maybe it's because you're getting some need-based Team Pam? just a thought. maybe if you call after the deposit deadline, some money wil free up?

I do think the need-based was maybe more generous than it would have been otherwise because of my competing offers.  Honestly, when I started the cycle, I never thought I'd get merit $ anywhere, but it's frustrating to have gotten it from every T10 school that accepted me except the one I actually want to attend.  And I think being slightly older makes me more worried about debt, because if I want to have kids  before I'm 35 (which I do), I won't have as many full-time years of work beforehand to pay off the school debt.

Anyway, I'm going to send in my deposit, and then ask again once I know that they know I'm really serious about attending.  :)  I do love Penn, and I'd be going there no matter what the $.  But I'd be even happier about it with more $. ;)

To answer the super super serious question. I am most excited about Penn and Philly in two ways: 1) it will be a very fun to live in a large (but not too big) city where I can enjoy dancing on weekends and have a life outside school, 2) I love the people I met while I was there. Also, Penn is the only school that when I stepped in I got that feeling of "This is where I belong." I know, corny but true. Oh, I love the set up and arquitecture of the school too.

I'm most excited about living somewhere that's affordable enough that I can go out and have fun and take weekend roadtrips.  I'm also excited about being in a true city and not having to use my car every day.  And I'm probably most excited to actually go back to school and take interesting classes and hang out with such a smart (and collegial!) group of people.

Pookie - one of my best friends went to Penn for undergrad, and rented a house off campus.  They needed summer subletters and I didn't really have plans (my college summers were very underachieving, but fun), so I figured it would be fun.  And it was -- it was the summer I turned 21, so I spent a lot of it getting to know the bars of University City.  :D

for me it was actually more difficult...i was VERY conflicted btn penn and uva, adn i never had that "aha" moment.
for me, penn was actually the less comfortable place..I knew UVA would fit, and would be comfortable and i would be happy... BUT i felt I needed to go outside my comfort zone a bit, adn penn did that for me

i hope it was the right choice.... :)

I just got off the phone with Tony Henry.  He said I'd already been reconsidered for a Dean's, but my GPA wasn't high enough -- the median this year (I guess for admitted students) is 3.75.  He did, however, say he could get my need aid up to $40k total, which is enough to make me happy.  :D

congrats on that. I hassled all I could fo 2 months and got nada.



how should i go about begging for more money..i already have a small scholarship, but lots of need money..and it equals my uva money alreday..but i was wondreing how i could get more merit money?
anyone have a game plan for me?

Ask deedeeleigh for the lowdown.  She's very helpful.

You knew Penn was the place for you when ____.

Contiki inspired me to reply in kind. I had the same "This is where I'm coming" feeling the moment I walked into the ASW. I had already put money down elsewhere and only came because I'd already paid for the weekend. ConLaw was pretty compelling, too.

Sweet! Funny thing is that my "This is where I belong feeling" was back in January 19th when I toured the law school for like an hour.

I let Gtown down easily and removed myself from the waitlist last week when they e-mailed everyone.  I'm still on at Duke, UVa and Michigan to see what happens.  Stanford likes to keep me guessing and waiting for my rejection letter just a bit longer.

Same.  As soon as I sat down and talked with some of the current students (and LSDers, although i didn't know it at the time), i knew Penn was the right place

for me it was actually more difficult...i was VERY conflicted btn penn and uva, adn i never had that "aha" moment.
for me, penn was actually the less comfortable place..I knew UVA would fit, and would be comfortable and i would be happy... BUT i felt I needed to go outside my comfort zone a bit, adn penn did that for me

i hope it was the right choice.... :)


Admit it, the prospect of getting loved like the ASWers did is what did it.  Well, that and the fact that Logan picked UVa...and who really wants to go to school with HIM?  :P ;)

thanks m1, i'm pretty thrilled, and i would've come to penn even if they offed me 5 dollars per year. well maybe that's an exaggeration but i talked it over with myself (i'm quite a good sounding board for myself i must admit...although it does freak out people to hear me talk to myself)...and i just liked penn so much more than other schools that i woudl've taken on extra debt to go.

and NOBODY answered my SUPER SERIOUS question yesterady

what about Penn/Philly excites you most?

c'mon...fine, i'll start. It thrills me to be going to a school with a sense of community but i also have the opportunity to venture outside of the law school world and meet other...non-law-student types

I'm most excited about Penn and Philly because I'll be about a thousand miles away from everything I've ever known, and that departure from the ordinary should be interesting.


I'm also excited to meet all y'all interesting people.

I let my Penn deadline pass today.  Nice meeting Rusty, dancerina, and everyone else at the Preview a few weeks ago.  Good luck to everyone at Penn next year!

By the way Rusty, so random that I saw you at La Guardia...I was originally supposed to be in Chicago at 6:20 pm.  After I saw you, I spent about another 10 hours at the airport, and didn't land in Chicago until like 5 am.

Yeah bosco, I didn't expect to see you, or anyone else I knew, on that trip.  It sucks that your flight was delayed, but I guess that the rest of your Chicago trip was good.

Its a shame that you're not coming to Penn, but good luck at Chicago.  Shawn, from our Penn tour group, is also going to Chicago, I believe.

Ersatz, don't go to GULC.  The job prospects aren't nearly as secure as at most other T14s and it results in a pretty competitive student body (Section 3 is the exception, but that's only one year).  Unless you think that would motivate you more than collegiality would.  :)

I'm neither west or east coast, Caribbean woot! Ok so my decision came down to what I wanted and that was a place were I would both have a great law school education, have fun, feel comfortable, etc. The primary reasons I chose Penn over Boalt (and trust me it was a really really hard choice) were: 1. It just felt right, I liked Penn, the atmosphere, how accesible the administration has been (Dean Post and Mr. Henry), the students, the city; 2. They had a particular program that most places didn't have, legislative law clinic; 3. I had some $ from them, not much compared to GULC, Cornell, GWU or Boalt but enough to ease me through; and 4. It really just felt like the right choice from the start. Boalt was amazing, great students, classes, professors, weather, but there were things about it that didn't make me fall in love with it. The building was depressing and I for one like being in places that are bright and shiny. Their ASD was less informative and more cramped, also it was the only place the administration sat during the student panel and intervened; finally, the student body was older at Boalt or at least felt that way. GULC was just too corporate for me, although their gym is just WHOA!

So yea that was my decision process in a nutshell PM me if you want to know more, but I can tell you I am quite happy loosing some $ in order to go to Penn.

I've definitely heard that. At the same time, I do already have a hefty amount of UG loans, so law school loans are a concern. It's kind of a balancing act at this point - I'm trying to have a long-term outlook and to see what's going to be better in the long run.

I think your opportunities are better coming out of Penn for 1L summer jobs than they are at Gtown, which offsets another $30k in scholarship difference.  Additionally, Philly is not nearly as expensive to live in as DC, so you should factor that in as well.

Seconded. I haven't been to Monk's, but Eulogy is one of my favorites in Old City. It seems that no matter how many times you go, you'll never run out of new beers to try -- they serve a few hundred different types, no? And, moreover, they run the gamut in terms of intoxication factor, from the standard 3% ABV up to 14% or 15%, I think.

This said though, I've never been disappointed just to sit on my back porch, grill and drink a few lagers either.

Woot awesome weekend. I'm not a fan of beer, hard liquor is much better (ahhh vodka) but if choosing a beer Australian is the way to go (and not the fake stuff like Foster's). Best movie ever? Cruel Intentions or Contact. Mean Girls is fun and from recent movies I'd say The Devil wears Prada is the best.

Oooh, I *love* Contact.

And pookie, I'm with you on European beer... although I'm spoiled now after drinking beer in Holland for a week.  It's sooooo much better there.

It was awesome.  We did some cultural stuff (museums, tulip fields), but mostly we wandered around, drank a LOT of beer, and ate poffertjes (little pancakes) and cheese sandwiches.  Highly recommended. 

One tip: if you're too tired to walk, a canal paddleboat is NOT an easier alternative. ;)

I'm really excited about being back east, because now I can keep my eye out for cheap fares directly to Europe from JFK.  No more 26-hour travel days!  I wonder if grad students qualify for student discount tickets.

I like Dutch and Belgian Beer okay, but I like German beer the best.  Erdinger Hefeweizen, Warsteiner Dunkel, and Bitburger are all good beers, also anything made by Spaten.  There's good American Beer too, if you look for it.  Session, a lager from Full Sail Brewery, is pretty darn good.

the byob restaurants are cool though.

i'm of the opinion that all states should adopt louisiana's liquor laws, ie you can buy liquor at gas stations.  it makes things so much easier.

And Rusty, I'm with you on The Big Lebowski.

Thank you bosco for recognizing its brilliance.  Also, a fun fact about the Big Lebowski: Smokey, the guy who Walter pulls his gun out on at the bowling alley, is a Texas Country Musician from Lubbock named Jimmie Dale Gilmore.

I'm not going to Penn, I just came in to troll LSN accounts, but I have to ask, which Australian beers do you like? Several people there told me Americans like VB, but I wasn't too crazy about it aside from the low(er) price and relatively high alcohol content.

Mass produced crap (Amstel) is mass-produced crap, whether it comes from Colorado or Amsterdam.

If you want REAL Euro-beer, get something from Belgium (and not Stella... that's a lager and it doesn't count), or maybe a British (Scottish) Ale (Caledonian 80/~)...

I'm also partial to a proper Pilsner.

If anyone wants to talk beer, I think I'll make a beer thread this afternoon...

I think all liquor stores in PA are owned by the state or something like that. Someone else might know better. It really does not affect going out to bars or whatever just liquor stores themselves.

I havent been on for a few days to address this all important topic. busy weekend.

Philly is a great beer town. some really good local breweries in PA and delaware, awesome gastropubs (monks and eulogy were already mentioned-- -and there are many more) and some nice little boutiques. the foodery on 13th and pine is a good one. somethign liek 500 differnt brnads from all over the US

rusty-- for german beers-- go to ludwigs on 13th and sansom. right around the corner from lolita and el vez. awesome selection of german beers on tap. I drank 4 optimators 2 weeks ago. you can get flights, or these huge-ass tubes to share with your table.

lager (known as yuengling to outsiders) is obviously the local schwill of choice. but for the real cheap stuff-- Lions Head is the way to go. you can get a case--24 bottles-- for 10$. seriously. 42 cents a beer

one of the best wine boutiques in the US is right over the river in south jersey-- Moore brothers. tons of small craft wineries from france and italy, all shipped at 56 degrees. at great prices. and amazing, but friendly, experts

Actually, it looks like it might finally shake out this week. Got a WL notice from Harvard, finally, so that's off the list. (As an aside - can anyone tell me whether Harvard actually makes use of the waitlist or if it's like most other schools in that it's basically a polite "no"?) I'm waiting to hear back from Tony about an updated financial aid offer.  I think once that's done with, I'll be able to make my final decision.

(Oh, and I should get the inevitable Stanford rejection sometime this week, I'm sure.)

I answered but that was the crazy thread growth night. Here is what I had typed.  :)

Today is only the 20th - what do you mean about letting the deadline pass?

Argh. I thought I was pretty much set on Penn, but I got the financial aid from GULC today (finally), and they are offering me double what Penn has. Now I'm all in turmoil again.

I gave up lots of $ at Boalt and GULC for Penn, in the end it was about what felt right and trust I struggled with it and stuck with Penn. That said, you should too.  ;)

Contiki, so what made Penn so appealing for you? In particular, why did you choose it over Boalt? (I have a soft spot for Boalt, so that's why I'm curious). Are you east coast or west coast?

I'm neither west or east coast, Caribbean woot! Ok so my decision came down to what I wanted and that was a place were I would both have a great law school education, have fun, feel comfortable, etc. The primary reasons I chose Penn over Boalt (and trust me it was a really really hard choice) were: 1. It just felt right, I liked Penn, the atmosphere, how accesible the administration has been (Dean Post and Mr. Henry), the students, the city; 2. They had a particular program that most places didn't have, legislative law clinic; 3. I had some $ from them, not much compared to GULC, Cornell, GWU or Boalt but enough to ease me through; and 4. It really just felt like the right choice from the start. Boalt was amazing, great students, classes, professors, weather, but there were things about it that didn't make me fall in love with it. The building was depressing and I for one like being in places that are bright and shiny. Their ASD was less informative and more cramped, also it was the only place the administration sat during the student panel and intervened; finally, the student body was older at Boalt or at least felt that way. GULC was just too corporate for me, although their gym is just WHOA!

So yea that was my decision process in a nutshell PM me if you want to know more, but I can tell you I am quite happy loosing some $ in order to go to Penn.

Going to NJ for beer/wine is essential.  Its like a 10-15 min drive and the price difference is huge.  Example: Case of Hoegaarden in philly is like $40+ tax.  in NJ, the same case is $25-27.

"Real Chianti from Tuscany's Best!

Paolo De Marchi returns to Moore Brothers Wine Company on Saturday, April 28th between the hours of 12 - 5 PM for an in-store tasting of wines from his estate in Tuscany, Isole e Olena as well as wine from his estate in Piemonte, Proprieta Sperino.

Dinner Too!
On Sunday, April 29th at 5 PM, our favorite Tuscan restaurant, Toscana Kitchen + Bar (next door to Moore Brothers in Delaware) will host a magnificent Tuscan feast built around wines from both estates. There will be a reception followed by 5 (five, count 'em) courses (including dessert). There are still some seats left, but you should act quickly!

The menu for the evening can be downloaded here. For reservations, you can book online here, or by calling Toscana Kitchen + Bar at 302-654-8001

Tako, isn't your wife WLed at Penn?  So there's still hope, right?  Want us all to start bugging Dean Post? ;)

annndddddd i'll also have a car, for what it's worth.  it's just a jetta, so not too much storage space, but i still anticipate sneaking cases of alcohol across the nj/pa border.  and possibly taking roadtrips throughout the east coast.  as a texan, i have this perception of the northeast as being a lot smaller than it probably is.

The northeast is pretty small.  And because it's relatively densely populated, it's usually a more interesting drive than the same distance in NM or Texas.  I went to college in Boston and went on roadtrips all the time -- Maine, New York, DC, Virginia, random places in Pennsylvania, visiting family in Jersey, the occasional run to the NH border for alcohol on Sundays.

No Jetta here, although I always wanted one.  We've got a Prius.

Maybe.  I think that's cheaper than any of the Penn-provided options.  Have you had a car at BC?  What it came down to for us was this -- while we could definitely make it work without a car in Philadelphia, and we certainly wouldn't go out and buy one if we didn't have one, we don't want to give it up after having one for seven years.  Especially since I have a lot of family and friends in the DC-to-NY area and it'll be nice to not always rely on trains.

There's also phillycarshare.org, which I've heard a lot of good things about.

i haven't looked much into parking around philly, but i'm sure i'll find something.  i don't plan on using my car too much, but it's so convenient sometimes that i don't want to give it up.

i have an '03 jetta (bright red), though i really want a prius.  i'm pretty sure my next car is going to be a hybrid. 

in the meantime, we should form a jetta club.  and take lots of roadtrips! i also have no problem lending my car out whenever, as long as you pay for the gas  :)

No car at BC- they don't allow anyone to have them because of a lack of parking.  I've been fine with it, but I can see how having a car to get away for a weekend or for trips places would be fun.

Oh, and I have a 2001 black jetta, although my brother has been using it while I've been gone at college.  I used to be a huge car (specifically VW) dork and still own the technical manuals to them, so any time people need to spend a weekend fiddling with their cars, I'll be up for it  :)

I haven't heard crap since I went complete in early January.  I haven't called them, but I may tomorrow.  I sent my deposit in to Penn, so It'd be good to know before everything is official.  I've heard that Stanford doesn't say much when you talk to them, but I'm sure they'd tell you if a decision has been made.  What that decision is will probably be tougher to get out of them.

rusty - why did you decide to live in sansom?

I haven't decided yet, but it's looking attractive.  It will be cheaper than most other places, and since I'm so far away, I can't go up there to look for a place to stay.  I've looked online, and found some places in Center City that would be doable, but since I don't know anyone who I could room with, and I don't really know which places are okay to live in, it makes searching difficult.  Living in Sansom just seems like the easiest path.  If there's a good place that anyone knows about, or if someone needs a roommate, then I'd probably not live in Sansom, but if not, I probably will.

In my second year, I definitely won't.

other option is just to go for the popular apartment complexes for law students - they'd have to be in a good area to satisfy the ever-so-picky Penn Law breed :)

like, 2400 chesnut sounds good because they have a free shuttle back and forth to penn campus. there's also a list of popular high -rises on the housing website

Speaking of couches, how much room does a 2 Bedroom at Sansom really have.  I know that it says that there is no living room, but the floorplan looked like you could fit a couch in there.  Hoping that there's at least enough room just in case any friends come up to visit.

There's not. :(

agreed, and its not even close.  there isn't even room for a TV in one of those setups!

well, i think the reason why i got my $$ was because of my UVA scholarship *and* i emphasized that Penn was my top choice, and since i didn't have any need aid, i was kinda in the hole. I know you have some need aid, but if you have some loans from osu, i'd mention that too...

Rusty- Ill be in Sansom!! Are u def living there? if so, did u req east?
and..i just now noticed that m1 posted the link to the Happy Feet Remix...that is the greatest thing i have ever seen  :D

I thought I read that you were gonna be in Sansom.  That's awesome!  I'm still not sure if I'll live in Sansom yet.  My biggest problem with it is that there isn't a living room.  Which means if I want to hang out with other people, then I would have to hang out at their place or somewhere else.  But if I can't find a roommate, or a nice, relatively cheap place to stay, then I'll probably stay in Sansom.  If I do live in Sansom will I have to request to live East, or will they automatically put me there?  I would definitely want to live with the rest of the Law students if I stayed there.

Also, Outkast kicks ass.

I may have already posted this upthread, but - I had a productive e-mail / phone exchange about financial aid with Mr. Henry over the past few days that resulted in a pretty damn good outcome, so I think I’m going to be officially mailing out my seat deposit to Penn tomorrow. It feels good to finally be so close to a final decision, particularly considering that the people that are heading to Penn this fall seem to be an interesting, intelligent, and varied group of people.

They're pretty big here in LA.  I've seen them a couple times, and over the past few years they went from $5 shows to $40 shows.  Still well worth it, though -- they're amazing live.

Good to know I'm not the only one. I called yesterday and was told it would be done "today or tommorow morning, at worst". The fact that this has not occurred, coupled with the comment that "I'll need to talk to the director about this", is not very reassuring.

yeah, they told me last tuesday that i would have the decision by the end of last week.  yesterday, when i still hadn't heard anything, i sent an email but received no response.  i ended up calling today and was told that i should definitely hear something by the end of the week.  i hope they're for real this time; the deadline's approaching pretty rapidly.

We have to offer a general characterization of Modern Japan, and then illustrate that characterization by tracing one of like 15 given themes (I'm focusing on Foreign Contacts) from 1600 - 2007.

Honestly, It's going to be pretty easy, and I'm already done 3 pages, I just don't feel like doing any work.  I want to graduate already.

It has been.  It's my Senior Seminar in history class and the Professor has been really cool.  Our topic for the class is "popular culture" and the topics have ranged from Oil Crises in the media, to a study of Soccer Hooligans, to how hispanic machismo affects a their willingness to visit the doctor.  Some of the students ragged on me because I'm going to law school (a SUPER SERIOUS thing) and I'm writing about Bob Wills (a not-SUPER SERIOUS thing), but I don't care, it's been a really interesting topic.

Bob Wills would come up out of the grave and fight you if he heard you call his music country! :P  His music is an influence on modern, Nashville country (which I dislike), however and he is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, so I'll let your slight pass.

Although Wills' music was "country" at times, a large proportion of it was jazz, swing, and boogie-woogie music.  He made popular several mainstays of country and rockabilly music such as the drums, amplified guitar, steel guitar, and the danceable jazz beat, as opposed to the undanceable tempo of bluegrass.

Some of his music sounds alot like early rockabilly and blues, which is what I'm writing about in my paper.

So I live in the Penn dorms now, and the cable service we get is provided by the school.  It does not include comcast (the local cable company's station), and thus, we cannot watch any philly sports.

They actually closed with "After the Bombs," which was not part of the album but is an incredibly beautiful and lyrical song. I think it's available on iTunes if you buy the entire album. If you haven't listened to this song, I definitely recommend it.

phillies are warming up as the weather does. 11 runs off 20 hits last night

and the flyers are going to be good next year. we got 2 first round draft picks from the last 2 years (parent and upshall) for forsberg, two this coming year, and an awesome goalie in biron. goaltending has been one of the prime problems for the flyers in recent years. that problem is definitely solved.

Can't speak much about the Flyers, but I'm not sure I'd guarantee they'll be "good" next year.

But yeah, Phillies are moving up in the world.  J Roll has 7 home runs, cole hammels leads the MLB in strikeouts after he threw 15 the other night.  All good things happening these days.

See, ordinarily I wouldn't have a problem with this, because I'm a Pats and Giants fan (and yes, that IS possible), so there's no conflict.  But I can't bring myself in good conscience to root for the Cowboys OR the Eagles.  The Cowboys are like the Yankees of the NFL, and Eagles fans are too batshit crazy.

Since we're back on the topic of sports, I'll reask my earlier question: Who wants to go with me and m1 to the Cowboys-Eagles game?   We can all bask in the glory that is America's Team! ;) (and hope we don't get stabbed)

is that football? I'll go just 'cause i've never been to an NFL game.

Yeah it's football.  I've never been to a NFL game either, so I think it will be an interesting experience.

Just in case, i was kidding about whether it was football. I'm not that into sports but not that oblivious.  :) Alrighty NFL game it is. I'm up for a flyers game as well, NHL is nothing compared to NCAA hockey but oh well.

Cool.  Strength in numbers.

I'm 5'10. Wow, we are going to be a short class, aren't we?

These pronouns make me happy  :)

:)

I may have already posted this upthread, but - I had a productive e-mail / phone exchange about financial aid with Mr. Henry over the past few days that resulted in a pretty damn good outcome, so I think I’m going to be officially mailing out my seat deposit to Penn tomorrow. It feels good to finally be so close to a final decision, particularly considering that the people that are heading to Penn this fall seem to be an interesting, intelligent, and varied group of people.

*This* close to changing my sig to "Penn Law 2010"! :D


Just wanted to add my YAY!!!!!!! Plus this means I have a clubbing partner woot!  ;D

I'm down for the football game, as I too have never been to an NFL game.  But I refuse to be associated with any Cowboys fans.  If you like the Cowboys, you hate America and Freedom generally.

Also, I don't know if anyone's looked into it, but Eagles tickets are REALLY expensive.  That's mostly why I've never been to a game.

It's a proven fact that Dallas is America's Team.  So if you don't love America's team then you must not love America. ;D

Haha.

I won't entertain these arguments.  I will just point to the NFC East powerhouse that is the Philadelphia Eagles.

When was the last time they won a playoff game though?

i've been gone for a while, so time to play catch up on the earlier questions-

Best recent album bought - Arcade Fire's Neon Bible (Not as amazing as Funeral, as in, it didn't take my breathe away the first time i heard it...but it is a very solid album nonetheless and sounds weirdly like a mix of sandinista era clash with some good springsteen vibes too.  if i hadn't been spoiled for so long with Funeral, i would be raving about Neon Bible)

Majors in College: Went in as a History major.  Stayed a History major.  In the mean time, i added Music as a double, dropped it for middle eastern studies, and then finally picked up American Studies.  My focus in History and Amst was on 20th century american culture and politics, with a particular focus on the American Consumer as well as suburbanism.

height: somewhere in between 5'11 and 6'0...not sure where in between anymore.

oh, and go Pats.  but, if we're going to see an Eagles game, make it either Eagles/Cowboys or (my pick, since i'm from DC) Eagles/Redskins.  Remember those stories of Philly fans booing Santa Claus?  I have a perverse desire to experience Philly fandom at the maximum level.

yeah man, that's my point about the Eagles.  I'm an Eagles troll.  Eagles are team dominate right now.  It's the cowboys who haven't won a playoff game in a decade.

And I agree about Flyers games being really fun.

Tony henry advised me that grad plus would be the way to go and that Penn is a lender. he said hte interest rate to start is 8.5%, we get a 1.5% "gradaution present" and another .5% for elevronic withdrawal. so as sooon as we start working we'll be at 6.5%. which isnt bad.

I just started filling out the application online, and it seems like Citibank is the only lender available to Penn.  Those numbers don't quite match what I saw on the Penn chart, so I think I'm going to hold off on finishing the app until I hear more.

I'm thinking of doing the Wharton Certificate too, even though Wharton is the bastion of all that is evil in the world (something you will learn once you get to Penn).

Also, I think it's entirely possible that Penn yields a decent amount more than in previous years.  They just moved into a tie with Chicago, and it seems like people are dissatisfied with that area and would choose Penn instead.

In terms of joint degrees/certificates, I was reading on the penn law website that you can only register for most classes in other grad programs after all the students in those programs have registered. Do you think that makes it hard to get the classes you want?

In terms of joint degrees/certificates, I was reading on the penn law website that you can only register for most classes in other grad programs after all the students in those programs have registered. Do you think that makes it hard to get the classes you want?

it shouldnt be too hard. They want to make the cross-disciplinary options feasible-- since that is a real academic cornerstone at penn. although I know the master of bioethics program is becoming increasingly popular.   

m1-- the MGA at the fels institute of government would be good. at least a few electives there.

re loans-- if im not mistaken-- if you do the grad plus through Penn, you dont have to use citibank or any private lender. but i may be talking aout of my butt on that one.

Fine... :)

As I said before I am an undergrad at Penn and I am originally from New York City.

Certainly when I applied to law school I expected to end up in NYC.
I really liked NYU on paper but not as much in real life.
Most of my friends will be in New York and it would be cheaper to go to NYU.

However I chose Penn because:
-I liked it more when I visited
-I like the cross-disciplinary stuff
-I won't be commuting 45 minutes to go to school
-I like Penn/Philly and wouldn't mind spending another 3 years here since I will end up in NYC eventually
-It is close to New York so I can visit

In the end it was mostly based on a gut feeling. I don't like making decisions that way but hopefully I was right!

My only concern with joint degrees is that it throws off the recruiting cycle.  I know the 1 and 2Ls are all stuck in exams right now, but if someone could give us an idea of how that works, that would be great.  I think I remember reading somewhere on here that it can be problematic.

parking at penn is 126$ per month. 100$ is a good rate.


 Missed this reply.  Thanks!  I can breathe much more easily now that I have a decision made.  I think NYU would have been a ton of fun, and NYC is where I'm headed after, but I already have a bunch of friends at Penn or going to Penn next year and I couldn't really justify the extra expense of NYU aside from location location location.

Looking forward to it  :)

Grew up outside of Los Angeles, did my undergrad in San Diego and have been living in Orange County for the past three years doing i-banking and legal stuff.  Excited about the east coast, but I'll miss the weather here dearly. 

to answer SUPER SERIOUS QUESTION #123245:

- I loved the campus.  About as far away from the plastic and stucco I'm used to in Socal.
- The joint-degree programs and how easy Penn makes them
- Affordable and close to NYC and D.C.
- After 9 years of Socal traffic I really wanted to just sell my truck and walk everywhere

yup, central texas for me, as well.  and again, nothing major on my part unless ikea furniture counts.  ha.

so i'm sitting in a coffee house thinking really hard about possibly beginning my paper, which is due tomorrow at 9:30am.  i really wish i could find the motivation to write it.

instead, i've been looking at the texas football schedule, trying to decide which game(s) i want to come home for.  the tech and rice games seem to be at convenient times, and i'll be here for thanksgiving, which means i can go to the a&m game if i feel like driving out to the hellhole that is college station.

I'm driving with my family from Central Texas.  I'm not hauling anything major, though.

yup, central texas for me, as well.  and again, nothing major on my part unless ikea furniture counts.  ha.

so i'm sitting in a coffee house thinking really hard about possibly beginning my paper, which is due tomorrow at 9:30am.  i really wish i could find the motivation to write it.

instead, i've been looking at the texas football schedule, trying to decide which game(s) i want to come home for.  the tech and rice games seem to be at convenient times, and i'll be here for thanksgiving, which means i can go to the a&m game if i feel like driving out to the hellhole that is college station. 

i'm guessing only rusty can relate to the last couple sentences i wrote.

I hear you girl.  I doubt I'll be coming home for a game this year, though if I do It'll probably be the baylor game in Waco, or the UT game in Austin, so no Home games for me :'(.  Most likely, however, I'll just come home on Thanksgiving and not see any games.

Oh also, I asked in an earlier post if you wanted to make some type of wager on the Tech-UT game.  I assume the silence means that you are too afraid of losing to respond ;).

Ragarding joint degrees I'm either doing the joint JD/MES or the certificate in Environmental Policy.

As for loans that was me vaguely recollecting the fin aid presentation Mr Henry gave at ASW.

My only concern with joint degrees is that it throws off the recruiting cycle.  I know the 1 and 2Ls are all stuck in exams right now, but if someone could give us an idea of how that works, that would be great.  I think I remember reading somewhere on here that it can be problematic.

Towelie is here, no worries. I'm just in the middle of something called finals, no big deal.

In any event, I was just accepted to a joint-degree. I will be pursuing a M.S. in Criminology in addition to a J.D. I will graduate in the same amount of time with no summer classes (just have to take 1 extra class each semester, which really isn't a big deal to me). I am doing it because I am interested in studying economic and legal solutions to poverty and crime, which is a broad topic, but I think they can potentially be addressed through decriminalization and regulation of illegal narcotics, so I hope to focus my research on that.

In any event, I was originally an applicant to the JD/MBE program and did not get in because they had SO many applicants and in my application I stated that I did not wish to work in health law upon graduation (I want to do international business transactions, I think) and they held spots for people whose career it was necessary for. On the other hand, they swayed me to the MS in Criminology program and I am so happy with it. I start in the fall.

If you graduate in the same amount of time it does not throw of the recruiting cycle but if you are graduating in 4 years it does. The only way it won't is if you spend your first year exclusively focused on the degree that isnt law, the second year on law, and the 3rd and 4th on a mixture.

Just make sure you say that in your application! Apparently, an academic interest in the subject doesn't cut it... at least not this year - I know it has in the past (due to a friend's experience).

I think I might go in for the MES, but I don't want to spend another year in school, especially if that will just be added debt.  Might get the Wharton certificate, but I was wondering if that thing is actually helpful?  Do firms really care about that, or is it like a minor in UG, nice to look at, but doesn't really affect anything.

Also, Carlos Mencia sucks.  Big Time.

I don't think he necessarily thought Studio 60 was all that good...but just his favorite recently cancelled show.  Studio 60 was no West Wing, but it's better than most of the crap that's out there.

Yeah I watched Studio 60 pretty regularly too.  I got into and its a shame that it was canceled, but I'm not that crushed.

Favorite first three seasons of a show - West Wing

*So* credited. The West Wing was, hands down, the best show on television but only if you stopped watching after third season. I never did get into Studio 60.

My current favorites - House (although that show would be nothing without Hugh Laurie), The Office (which has gotten immeasurably better since the first season), and I still watch the occasional Simpsons and Family Guy (though that's really force of habit more than anything at times). Loved Arrested Development (analyst + therapist = the world's first analrapist), Sports Night, Futurama, and the British version of The Office.

Why is everyone so down on season 4?  I mean it's clearly the worst of the 4 (2 being the best in my opinion), but I still think it deserves to be included among the others.  Although I admit some of the episodes towards the end of season 4 are pretty bad - and the one all about CJ's dad is absolutely horrible.

The thing is, by itself, season 4 wasn't terrible - I still watched it, and there were some enjoyable episodes. (Actually, the episode about CJ's father - "The Long Good-Bye," if I recall correctly - was very good.) It's just that when you stack season 4 against seasons 1, 2, and 3, it just doesn't stand up. It's all relative.

Yeah, you're right about season 4.  I guess I'm just thinking in my head that Season 4 belongs in a grouping with 1,2,3 much more so than 5,6,7 - but I don't think anyone here necessarily disagrees with that.

As for "The Long Good-Bye" (and yes that's the correct name) it's just not my type of episode.  When I first saw it, it was just so different from what I came to expect from Sorkin.  I really liked most of the first few episodes from season 4 though, and I think the last episode is up there as one of the best episodes from any season.


Oh, absolutely. To me, the West Wing is almost like two different shows - there are seasons 1-4, which I will happily watch anytime an episode is on, and there there are seasons 5-7 that I could not get through even once.

Yeah, the Long Good-Bye was definitely a lot more sentimental and lyric than most of Sorkin's stuff, but I thought he did it pretty well - certainly not sappy or anything.

Wow, it's tough to top the Shadow of Two Gunmen and Two Cathedrals. Fantastic episodes. Actually, looking at your list, I'm hard-pressed to disagree - those were all pivotal episodes that were brilliantly written. Toby in 17 People was phenomenal.  I also liked the plot thread in We Killed Yamamoto and Posse Comitatus. Gone Quiet, Noel, the Portland Trip, and What Kind of Day Has It Been are all good, too.

I agree with Ersatz, it's hard to top those, particularly "In the Shadow of Two Gunmen".  I'm partial to "The Crackpots and These Women" because of the big block of cheese.  I also really like "Galileo" and "Noel".

I'm going with the one where House is stuck teaching a lecture class all day and tells three different stories.  I don't want to ruin the ending, but it comes together in a fantastic way that left me stunned, to say the least.  Great episode!

Three Stories is my favorite House episode. It's one of the few that was written by David Shore, who seems to be a better writer than the rest of the staff put together. Other episodes I liked are House vs. God (teenage faith healer), All In (House has a patient who has the same symptoms as one that he wasn't able to diagnose / treat a dozen years earlier), Forever (a guy's wife has a seizure and drowns their infant child in the bathtub), and Half-Wit (music savant).

Oh - can't believe I forgot about Informed Consent (old medical researcher who asks to be euthanized). Love that episode.

What kind of a gym does Penn have, and is it decent? How expensive is it? Are there any private gyms that are close to the school?

Oh, and a Bonus Super Serious question: are there any rock-climbing clubs/gyms anywhere in the local area? I started just recently, but I love the hell out of it.

penn has a RIDICULOUS gym, with its own rock climbing wall and golf simulator as well.  priced reasonably, and only 2 or 3 blocks from the law school.  so to answer both of your questions, yes- use penn's gym

did you go to the full ASW?

I did.

So, Super Serious Question x+1:

How expensive is it?


 I think its free to use certain things like the bball courts, but you have to pay to use the exercise equipment.  I think its like 230 a year.

there are some decent rock gyms in philly. none that I know of in west philly-- but yes, there is a bit of wall at the Penn gym. theres actually some decent bouldering in fairmount park too

Yes, Penn's gyme is really nice, if sometimes crowded.  The rock wall is cool as well, but it's a little bit small, so if you're becoming advanced you might need to find somewhere else.

I do, but I'm not sure for how long.  I'm planning on signing a lease to start August 1, so I'm trying to figure out what date to give HLS so that if they do call, I'm not thrown into total chaos.  Last year they weren't so big on taking my kind of splitter off the WL, though, so it's probably a moot point regardless.

Good luck with that. I was originally going to stay on the waitlist. I have the form all filed out and everything, but I don't have a stamp. So, I decided to just drop H an email and tell them I don't want to be their sloppy seconds. Plus, Penn is amazing!

Hee, sloppy seconds.  I'm really excited about Penn, but I couldn't honestly say that I'd definitely turn down Harvard if they accepted me, hence staying on the waitlist.  Columbia, on the other hand, was a very easy waitlist to withdraw from.

The Harvard WL response was actually my second piece of outgoing mail today. I'm staying on for a bit because, if offered admission, I would find it very difficult to turn down, but at the same time, I don't want to have to up-end my life two weeks before classes and scramble to change everything. In looking at LSN, it seems like the majority of WL offers were made in May / June, anyway.

one of my roomates got into Stanford for Law school (she's actually an idiot) and she left it in the common room for 2 weeks becuase she was so proud of it...wahoooooo!

obviously, i'm ready to live alone

There's nothing wrong with Penn's UG, I love it here.  It's just to say that Penn certainly does accept toolbags...lots of them.  There's tons of real cool people, just a lot of raging tools as well.

i think that's the case for pretty much any undergrad.  there's always someone out there a bit too intent on basking in their own glory

we're just too smart to get sucked into a evil evil proscrinating machine that is LSD

i'm going down to Philly first weekend of June to check out things. Probably won't hire a realtor - too pricey.

then again, i'm in love with a loft-style apartment somewhat nearby, i think...

all of my male friends and half of my female friends are scared of him. maybe it's his beard and his loud voice.

radioface - would you recommend that I stick to "managed" buildings, or do you think the stuff posted on craigslist/phillyweekly are decent bets (defintely cheaper) - i just don't want to end up with a craphole.

i'm going down to Philly first weekend of June to check out things. Probably won't hire a realtor - too pricey.

then again, i'm in love with a loft-style apartment somewhat nearby, i think...

http://www.historiclandmarks.com/chocolateworks/floorplan_page.php?unit=0049-0C15

drool. a bit on the pricey side though

there should be great options in both realms. stuff you find on craigslist and in the weekly will likely still be handledby a property mgmt comapny. but if youre renting from some lady who owns a house in the burbs and in the city or something, you should make sure theyre explicit about maintenance etc, and its in the lease.

that studio on 3rd looks dope. Its pretty far from the law school (30+ blocks) but close to the subway that takes you there. and in a cool part of town-- lots of great little restaurants/pubs and art galleries. in the evening of the first friday of every month all the art galleries open their doors for a gallery stroll. its really cool. http://www.oldcityarts.org/start.html. i had a friend who was a law student and lived right near there all 3 years.  it loks pretty close to the ben franklin bridge too. so you might want to check the noise.

one other nice thing... its 4 blocks from where were having our orientation events-- the natl constitution center. so youll have no problem stumbling home from the cocktail partay ;)

whoops, i looked at the map wrong, yeah i'm not so sure i want to live in old city, as awesome as it sounds. I'll be living by myself and i'd love to have some 1L/2L/3L nearby so i don't become a "cat woman-spinister"  But damn, that apartment is sweet.

and i got my deposit confirmation today! yay!!!!!

The whole board is kind of a sausagefest. I've always wondered why LSD primarily self-selects for males. I don't think it's unique to this board, though.

if i had to guess, i'd say a large percentage of females are lurkers.  a lot of the Penn students i talked to were lurkers here, and they were primarily females.  the males seemed to be posters. maybe men are just stupid and less anonymous than everyone else :p

Title: Re: University of Pennsylvania Class of 2010

i looked into verizon v. cingular and they seem comparable in philly.

check out this

http://www.cingular.com/coverageviewer/
http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/CoverageLocatorController?requesttype=newsearch



of course, verizon is a rip-off, but i'm lazy and probably will maintatin my contract there. But i've heard cingular has crappy consumer service.


PS. i'm getting a blackberry this weekend, i'm such a yuppie

PPS: and i hate verizon's sucky phones too becuae i wanted to get the blackberry 880 which is available for cingular, but i'd have to switch my mom to cingular as well because i'm on the family plan. and cingular isn't that awesome where she lives. Also, verizon charges for GPS on blackberries...GRRR (not like i'd use it but...still!)

Hey all, I got my deposit notification today, so I'm official.  I sent the money off monday.  

Hey dancerina, I answered your Sansom question earlier in the thread, but I don't know if you saw it.  I'm probably gonna live there in a 2br if I can't find a roommate for off-campus, but the lack of living room and the smallness of the kitchen really bums me out.  Still the bedroom is big enough and its pretty cheap, so I wouldn't be upset if I stayed there.  I'm just hoping that someone will be willing to donate their kitchen and/or grill a couple times a month so that I can cook some good food.  

Also, I'm thinking about bringing up my old N64.  I don't have mario kart, but I have several others.
