As for the original topic, I applied to NYU, but only as a backup in case I didn't get into Chicago or Columbia (or maybe even Virginia).

Also I don't care about tax or international law.
The vast majority of NYC is left. We are so left that it is almost always assumed in conversation that you dislike Bush. I guess nowadays that is the case in most of America, but we've been hating on Bush since 2000. Perhaps Columbia attracts more out of towners, but if you want to avoid the left, avoiding NYC is somewhat of a requirement. I'm a centrist Dem and I feel like a conservative comparatively.
