3,66, 165, non-urm, complete on 1/21.  not going, but it's nice to have just for self-esteem purposes. Would rather take the money and spend 3 yrs in NO than in Nashville....

Wow, I'm amazed you would pick Tulane over a national powerhouse like Vanderbilt. Your balls must eclipse the sun.

I've heard New Orleans smells.

If cost isn't a factor I would go to American probably. They just broke into tier 1 too, btw.

As for me? I've applied to the school, and if they accepted me I don't think I'd go. Simply too expensive.

Thanks for the info guys.

At 33, a $150,000 debt from Cornell is something to think about. It isn't as cut and dry as it seems. If this were HYSC, it would be a no brainer, though. Your mom probably doesnt want you to be riddled with debt.

I was notified today that I have been accepted to the Spring '06 program at Baylor. I just have to resubmit my application and I'm automatically in. I'm already in at UK for next fall with $9800 a yr in scholarship money. Baylor might offer me some money later down the road, but which school would you choose? I don't particularly like the prospect of living in Waco, TX for 3 years, but at the same time, markets like Dallas and Houston are nearby. Baylor's brutal curve is a bit upsetting as well, although Texas firms might already know this, and take it into account when hiring. UK, on the otherhand, is the premiere University in its state and probably places well everywhere in KY. Lexington is, by all accounts, a neat town that might provide a more comfortable atmosphere, and the University itself is reputable; I would probably end up with less debt as well. What should I do?

P.S. I'm WLed at W&L and Minn; I would go to either if accepted.

Wow, thanx for the info. At UK you can make A+'s. Would this indicate a generous curve?

I got Spring accepted today as well. It's a tough choice. Waiting a few more months and then going to Baylor would allow me to save up some $$$. Their BRUTAL curve is a bit of a turnoff, however; at UK you can get A+'s lol. If Baylor offered me some $$$ it would make it interesting.

What is a curve and why is it important?
