I'm gonna go with pathetic, insecure individual who is ashamed of his/her under-achievment and/or bitter that (s)he got rejected from every T14.  Whatever helps you sleep at night buddy.

I swear I posted my reply before I even read this far!

everyone knows cornell is pretty overrated. it's a decent university in a crappy area of the country that has laxer admissions standards in nearly every one of its schools as compared to the rest of the ivy league and other major private research universities.   

They rejected you, didn't they?

If money isn't an issue, and particular legal track isn't an issue, why would you EVER turn down a T14?

Yeah, Im leaning more towards Cornell, but 90k will make you think twice, or three or four times, hell it might make you go crazy trying to decide.

If your dad is paying for the whole thing, why is this an issue? Unless you feel it would be an undue burden on him to do so, in which case, why would he even volunteer to pay the whole thing anyway?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Banning Laptops - Good or Bad?

But I can see how having internet access could be very distracting, my luck I'm engaged in something else and miss an important concept or get called on. Blocking wireless creates the fair situation where no one is off doing something else, and so everyone should be paying attention to the class without being denied the advantage that typing on a laptop brings.

So, you need the school admin. to save you from yourself? 

No, not saying that. I'm just saying if its not an option, its not a distraction. We're only human after all. It was more the point that blocking wireless is a better idea than banning laptops since laptops are very functional for note taking.

Cornell, I believe has struck a good compromise in blocking wireless in the classroom. I agree its counterproductive to ban laptops from the classroom, since for many it just makes note taking easier, quicker and more productive (if you're the type of person who prefers not to use a laptop, great, but everyone else shouldn't be denied the option). But I can see how having internet access could be very distracting, my luck I'm engaged in something else and miss an important concept or get called on.

Tell me about Hughes Hall. The convenience sounds wonderful. Do most students enjoy their stay there (as much as you can for dorms?) Are they shared apartment style with your own room? Or is there separate access to your room and other common areas (like bathroom, kitchen, etc.?) What furniture does it come with? Is there heating? Air conditioning? Cable TV ready? Wireless internet? Anything else I'm not thinking to ask?   

Neither I nor johngalt live in Hughes, but Rainwater does... he'd be the best person to ask about this...

Would you guys mind letting me know where you live and what your opinion of it is? I see he redacted his, so if you guys want to PM me that would be good too. Just looking for more info before I commit to moving up there.

If you send in your seat deposit early do you get priority for Hughes?

Has anyone heard about scholarships/financial aid packages yet?

Thanks!

From what I understand, it doesn't matter when you send in your deposit (before the deadline). Everyone gets the housing packet at the same time after the deadline and the quicker you send it back, the better your priority is.
They've given back financial aid packages. Doesn't sound like they're giving many scholarships that aren't need based.

GMU has consistently risen in the rankings as well. American, not so much...

It's official. I bought the new ones earlier based on this thread and it hadn't updated. I just refreshed and I have the new rankings! Cheers.
