Where should I go next fall? / WashU: and the endless mailers
« on: December 28, 2004, 09:11:47 PM »
I applied ED to WashU back in October. And it seems that since then they have sent me:

-a letters to confirm
-like 5 emails as invites to forums and chats
-a letter for an open house invite
-a letter to say 'happy holidays'
-a letter for a moot court invite
-a bragging letter

I love the attention and give them props for it and their interest in applicants, but there is one thing...I haven't been accepted or denied! Its going to be funny if they do this for all kids...getting their hopes up, then sending them a denial the next day. Or maybe they think i was already accepted and i lost that letter some how...who knows.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / UCLA and Westside review
« on: December 18, 2004, 03:38:18 AM »
First off some background: I live in Beverly Hills (about 3 miles from campus); went to UCLA for 4 years undergrad, raised in LA, OC, and SD...i am a so cal whore. I am telling those that arent from Cali about what LA is like...to be specific, the Westside. Cause West LA is a whole lot different than say; the bay area or SD or OC or even other parts of LA (something out of staters often don't get)

The school is super diverse. Politically it is a moderate school...with the wings thinking it is too opposite their view. Mostly politically apathetic though. Racially its about 60 percent white, 30 percent asian, and the rest latino. If you are used to black people, its going to be a hell of a culture shock. Looks matter so kids take care of themselves. The gym is always packed! since it s a big school you can find groups of peeps for all your cliques, you got the greeks, the athletes, the artsy people, the comp sci kids, etc etc. ITS FLIPPING HUGE...and often the red tape shows it.

The area is hella nice. North is Bel Air Estates, South is Westwood, West is Brentwood/Santa Monica, and East is Beverly Hills/Holmby Hills. Girls can walk around at all times alone and homeless people are usually chill.

You will get used to seeing nice cars and flashy greaseball guys. you will always end up buying groceries or some other stuff next to someone famous...or you will see them running their dog or something...you get over it fast.

There is too much to type...ahhhh!!! If anyone wants more info on LA or SD schools...just let me know.

Where should I go next fall? / St. George's University banner on LSD
« on: December 03, 2004, 08:12:14 PM »
Why do they have a banner up on the law school discussion website for a med school on Grenada. Is this also the school where Marines had to rescue students from Marxist forces back in like 83?

Where should I go next fall? / Anyone started on financial aid crap?
« on: November 30, 2004, 08:36:33 PM »
It seems like there are so many third party things to do like collegeboard and tax returns on top of fafsa...it makes lsdas apps seem like applying for pre-school.

Where should I go next fall? / Know much about Nashville and Vandy?
« on: November 03, 2004, 08:17:18 PM »
I'm an asian male who has grown up in so cal my whole life. Politically moderate metrosexual who has never been to middle south.

Everyone ive talked to, those who go to Vandy and many who have never been, have said either "Oh Nashville is soooo nice and friendly, its clean and really cosmopolitan" OR "Why are you going there, i soooo don't see living you in Nashville."

I'm assuming those who have never been are basing judgment on the Southern stereotype of being either: super friendly OR super racist...

Obviously i'm going to visit, but anyone have any insight?

Where should I go next fall? / Rep of William and Mary
« on: October 13, 2004, 09:16:58 PM »
Wondering if anyone has heard anything besides the obvious admissions #s regarding this school.

Looked chill enough and in my realm for me to apply. But ive been wondering if its even possible to get placement from there in CA after your graduate.

Also, anyone know much about Williamsburg? Last time i was there was when i was 12. And i learned how to make yarn from scratch, load a musket, and wear a funny hat.

Where should I go next fall? / Best looking students
« on: October 08, 2004, 06:56:36 PM »
From what everyone saw during undergrad and by word of mouth, where do they have the best looking students?

Of course there are your hot standards like Vandy, Texas, Pepperdine, and to an extent UCLA and SC...but are there any schools in the Northeast that have good looking girls who actually shave their armpits and stay in shape?

When i spoke with sc, they said i could write a little addendum about my family members who went to sc. Should i actually write this out in paragraph form...or make an easy to read list?
