So after my acceptance, I was skimming the Pitt law website, and came across their scholarship page. Nothing really interesting until I got to the endowments, and more specifically, the Arthur J. Murphy, Jr. Scholarship, where I lol'd. f-ing Irish.

The smart, ambitious people in LA are in technology, entertainment, finance and business.  In that sense it has similar demographics to New York, and a similar culture of excess that New York has.  Spoiled valley girls or spoiled long island bridge and tunnel crowds don't vary.  There's less entertainment and more finance (or at least there was in New York), and the girls are skinnier in New York, though more athletic in LA.  I think the advantage for that one goes to NY.  But I don't see the city comparing unfavorably in terms of people to NYC.  It's a similarly large, hard to generalize city.

However, I think it's less uniformly politically aware/ecoconscious than a Boston or an SF, and like every other city in the union, less wonky/brainy than DC.  But there are lots of niches in LA.  LA is probably only a conglomeration of niches...

You know what you're implying here, right?

I think it has to do with indigos, being a surreptitious snake-oil salesman, and because of the Latino vote.

don't forget luzerne and lackawanna counties in pennsylvania.

I'm a 3.3/171 and was accepted last week. gotta be at least <3.1 and 165+ for splitter status...

I dunno about this, my defintion is above the 75th and below the 25th, whatever that is. And MA, I feel your URM status will make your cycle very un-splitteresque.

I'm also keeping my eyes open for the first t14 splitter acceptance. Anyone see one yet?

UPDATE: Georgetown has accepted a 171/3.45 and a 170/3.44, from LSN, if those count as splitters.
