yeah, people have it.  Why don't you call the admissions office for it.

because they put you on hold, forever, and I'm at work...

43's hard to establish that you are coming here for something other then school....You'll probably have to get married to your boyfriend

I doubt that.  If you are a dependent on your parents who live in another state, then you won't get residency.  However, if you live in the state for 12 months (as proven by your driver's license) and can prove (via summer work) that you are contributing to the tax base of the state and file AZ income tax returns, you will get residency.  It's only an issue if you are a dependent.  Since AZ universities rely on income taxes for the majority of thier funding, they just want proof that you have put in your tax "dues".

You would have to do this without attending school according to state guidelines....
the difference really isn't that big, but there is a difference.  I believe ASU's class is slightly larger which would lead to a little more competition for a job.

I know someone has this....

If I had those numbers I would most probably reapply and try to get into a T14. depending on how long ago your felony was and what it was it may not matter too much. The 3 T14 you applied to would have been longshots, as they are all pretty random with their admittances. That said I would be happy at Texas but would always wonder would I have gotten into a t14 if I had just applied, and though Texas is an excellent school it is not quite there in terms of prestige.
 However, it really depends on you.

I agree with you...Texas is just a regional school in a strong region, hold out until next year.

I don't think can someone's opinion change of you in a year?  If you are worried about it I'm sure the people that did your LOR's have the file saved and you can just resubmit them.

Anyone want me to PM the Uchicago PW and username for admitted students? ugrad email address got canceled and i can't seem to remember it :(

I think the rep difference between ASU and UA is similar (maybe slightly larger) to that of NYU and Columbia

I'm going to break with the majority and encourage you to pursue it, at least for Columbia. It appears CLS throws  most (if not all) of its merit money at presumptive Harvard, Yale, and Stanford admits. If your stats are in that area, I'd say why not give it a go? I can't speak for NYU except that they seem to put more thought into how they distribute their scholarship money.

This will make you look like an idiot

Let's be honest here. You don't know jackshit. And frankly, neither do I. All I did was make a suggestion. How much money will he get from CLS if he doesn't try? $0. What is CLS going to do if he does try? Rescind his admission? I doubt that. So the OP has nothing to lose. He might as well try it. In the meantime, you can shut your damned mouth and try coming up with something constructive instead of putting down people making suggestions.

Hey you admit that you don't know *&^% yet you attack my opinion.  Columbia and NYU believe that they are near peer intsitutions to Harvard.  They are not going to give the OP money to sway them from H if they did not already do so.  Do you remember bigTex?  Law school communities are small and doing such an abnormal procedure in the admissions process has the potential to hurt you.  Even if this potential is small, it easily outweighs the chance that NYU or Col would offer the OP a scholarship for being admitted to Harvard.

When I said across the board, I meant across the entire board.  I probably applied to a few too many schools that could have been considered safeties.

I was concerned with my little-known/unknown undergrad school, my major (many P/F's), and being a non-traditional student.

I'm by no means heartbroken over my results, but a bit disappointed I didn't test the high-end waters a little more than I did.

I've included my list of schools below to give you a better idea of what I mean.

I'm shocked you didn't get into Chicago...

what about boalt and vandy wl.  that makes even less sense

i think he has a felony or something
