I got this email this afternoon, and I was wondering if it was just boilerplate.  Did everybody else get a letter like this?




I'm on the Preferred Waiting List for full-time and I received an identical email today.

I received a call from the Associate Director of Admissions notifying me of my accepance on my cell phone yesterday.  The letter is in the mail.  :)

Hey good for you!  Congrats!

Cardozo has a higher annual cost than Brooklyn ($58k vs. $50k), but their budget seems to reflect a more realistic room & board allowance than Brooklyn's.

That's because there's a very real difference in the cost of living between Manhattan and Brooklyn.  I'm sure they're basing it off the assumption that you will live in the borough where the school is.
Actually, the room & board differential between the two boroughs on a student budget should not be 6k per year (I've lived in Bklyn and Manhattan).  Bklyn's housing budget is just too low.

In any event, after attending Brooklyn's Admitted Students' reception I found out I'm in at BU so this discussion may be for naught.  :)

lawsterino:
I received my scholarship award letter in the same package as my acceptance letter (both dated 4/7).

yrbadluck:
What do you mean when you say that C lacked diversity and that something was missing?  I'm not trying to grill you, I am just genuinely interested in hearing various perspectives.

Unless I get into any of my reach schools it looks like it's down to these two for me.  Both schools have given me a deposit deadline of this Friday.  I'll be visiting both this week and I'm starting to get a bit stressed about the decision.   :o

Cardozo has a higher annual cost than Brooklyn ($58k vs. $50k), but their budget seems to reflect a more realistic room & board allowance than Brooklyn's.  I've been awarded slightly more merit $ at Brooklyn but I haven't received a financial aid award from either so I don't know if I'll be getting any need-based $ to help sway me.

Brooklyn's clinics and study abroad offerings make it a touch more appealing, but I am also drawn to Cardozo's strength in IP and ADR. I suppose it will come down to $ and the overall vibe I get when visiting since both schools seem to have the roughly equal employment stats and rep.

Is anyone else deciding between these two?  If so, what are your thoughts so far and what will help you decide?

I'm still deciding.  I'll be visiting this week.

Yes...just say that you are calling to inquire about the status of your application.  Don't worry about being a pest.  Admissions offices are used to fielding these types of questions.

Yes, decision via snail mail.  FYI, if you do decide to call today: they close at 2:30 on Fridays.
