Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Harvard vs. the Hamilton (Columbia)

Keep in mind the Calculus of cross admits. Y > H so H needs to beat Y's aid offer. H > C, ostensibly, so H only needs to offer enough money to 'negate' the draw of the Hamilton. It's curious to follow.

Things don't work like this, nor are those two greater-than signs of equal size in reality.  Harvard and Yale largely don't compete on price.  Columbia can't compete with Harvard on price.  Even when it offers full rides, it loses the vast majority to Harvard.

Does that mean you think HLS would not be willing to offer more $$?  ???

If the Super Bowl teaches us anything, it's that you should never underestimate the underdog from NY in a competition against the "clear favorite" from New England.

Congrats Ben - I guess you don't have to worry about HLS anymore!

Interesting that Yale calls on the weekend (Super Bowl Sunday no less).. :D

I got the call late this morning.  I'm astounded.  I never expected to be in this position when I opened up that first LSAT book. 

It was hard for me to process the information he told me because I was nursing a hang over from my ridiculous night and I was really excited about getting the call. I'm pretty sure he said something about going out and celebrating. 




Congrats! :)

I just got the call. I cannot think straight.

CONGRATS! What a way to kick start your weekend.

You got the call on a Saturday?

 Did you pre-study at all before 1L?

 What are dorms like (or other HLS housing) ?

 What's the social scene and dating scene like?

 How do you deal with the cold?

 What are your thoughts on HLS' huge size?

Thanks Gunnery! I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet, but after speaking with the HLS Fin Aid office, the ballpark figure they gave for me for my anticipated need-based grants was very generous - the financial disparity doesn't look to be more than $70,000 for me (not that much in the long term).

And so, my decision has just gotten much harder.  :-\

Oh, and I may have missed this discussion in one of the various other Columbia threads, but is anyone else planning to attend the ASD in March? 

I'm going in April - anyone then?
