No Doubt...Cornell...don't even waste your energy and time with this decision. Cornell.

nyu = greater debt = bondage   

I don't care what people say...get over the prestige/higher ranking deal and make a logical decision. Go to Michigan.

If I don't get a the internship/job I applied for then I am just going to go back to california and find a job outside in sun. preferably at a golf course or a day camp, nothing strenuous.

I definitely think it should be a time to relax figuring the rest of our lives are going to be pretty hectic from here on out.

I like leiter's analysis in that any large school is hurt by the way usnews ranks the schools. All of the variables they use favor the small schools and their small classes.

I think vault's new rankings are better than anything the us news does. check those out. They focus everything on employment and reputation. If you haven't seen those rankings you might be a little surprised.

Yesterday I was followed by two cars out to my parking spot and instead of going to my car I walked into another building for 5 seconds and then went back out to my car!! I hate when people follow me to my car.

I do feel like I should withdraw from some schools also but I like what that other person said about the whole process being so impersonal anyway. All the schools just care about their stupid ranking and yields so let them worry!!

I was put on "hold" by chicago, I supplemented my package but I am now just waiting for them to reject me. Sounds fun right?

Does anybody think going to Santa Clara with a full ride and a stipend would be worth it? Would a graduate from santa clara be able to compete for jobs?

I would be incredibly surprised if they dropped that much. With the rankings they could drop a couple or go up a couple no one knows. I just got back from visiting the campus and meeting with all the deans. They said for the last 3 years every incoming class has had higher numbers than the last class and like you said they are getting better faculty. I would tend to think that they would go up a couple spots not drop, and definitely not drop a whole bunch, but really who knows.
