I'd check the UVa website or phone housing either this upcoming week or whenever they are open. I wouldn't think that you'd need to do anything quite yet, since most people have not committed.

what about running in NYC? I know that it would be an urban nightmare in general, but are there at least good places to run? Never been outside the airport there. I could probably get by without biking if I could run every day. Is NYU or Columbia in a better area for running? I'm not sure if I'll be able to turn down the NYU offer.

I think it depends where you are located too. I'm on the West coast, and I haven't heard of anyone out hear who has heard yet.
I think some people have heard on the West coast, but there have been two waves of letters - one postmarked 12/12 and one postmarked 12/14. Mine was postmarked 12/12 and I got the letter today - and I'm on the East coast.
I'm facing the same decision as of right now, and I think it might come down to QoL and where I feel most comfortable. I am also interested in PI, but I'd like to keep my options open, so I don't know that that will be a determining factor. As far as prestige/rep., I sometimes feel that CCN is an entirely fabricated concept, and that UVa and UMich are certainly on par with NYU (tho maybe not with CLS or Chicago) out there in the "real world."

Cornell and UVa. Maybe Michigan? I've never been to Ann Arbor so I can't comment on this. I would go with UVa, personally, since it is absolutely beautiful and not hellishly cold; there is certainly a lot of outdoorsy stuff that goes on year round.
