Harvard is Harvard, but cost in NYC over three years might cost dinero too. I think its all about waiting to see what kind other financial aid packs are out there. Plus it doesn't hurt to visit, I believe one should follow their gut.

perbroo--what did you write about in your statement? did you face any hardships...
  thanks for your kind explanation.  I am ethnically Cambodian (I was raised there until age 18, though born in the u.s.),so did my being of this different ethnic persuasion not give me an advantage?  It would seem that it should, because my understanding is that Asians faced immense ethnic discrimination in many professions in the U.S. for many years...this whole thing does not make much sense to me.
  thank you for your kind help and please pardon my ignorance on these matters.

alphalraye--what is need based money do you know how it works? is this based on your tax info or your parent's income? this sounds confusing...since me and you are probably the same age...

i am totally out of the loop on how loan pay back works--but if you go to HYS or CCN you can probably pay off your loans in a year or two that doesn't sound so bad... ??? Or do like law school loans take longer to pay back...Inla :-\

that was a really good link!  thanks a bunch!

This is confusing because some schools explicity(spelling?) say like UCLA--max 3 pages, double space...

But some schools says in a "page or two", but no other info and some specify no length.

If a school says a statement in a page or two, or two pages max...but nothing about spacing and margins....or font you think it would be okay to single space 1.0 space it, with.05 margins, and 11.5 font?  Are there any hard rules about this.

Thanks, Inla.

I dunno is there a difference?

I know LSAC gives a percentage--but I have seen some apps say class rank????????

Like your rank in your department? Or the rank of the entire graduating student body?

Great, now I feel unoriginal.  Your PS sounds exactly like mine except I used Seurat instead of Van Gogh.

Suerat's the Island of Grande Jatte (spelling?)-the one housed in chicago?
