nm, i was just confused with the PENN one by adding a '!' at the end.
yeah, people have it. Why don't you call the admissions office for it.
Right...it's hard to establish that you are coming here for something other then school....You'll probably have to get married to your boyfriend
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'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.
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
