I paid my deposit and will be probably be joining you guys in the Fall. It came down to a tough decision between a full ride at Temple (I also currently live/work in Philly) and $$ at Wash U. I am still waiting to hear from Cornell but I am pessimistic about my chances there (to say the least).
Also @ Coolsportsplaya: I paid my deposit on Wednesday last week and on Saturday I recieved a package in the mail. I am not sure why it was labeled 'fragile' as it turned out to be a binder, however it did contain a lot of useful information about Wash U and the St. Louis area. (Most of the info in the binder can be found by navigating the admitted students website).
...and AmericanGunnar, I tried but I just can't help myself; how about Hargreaves fk this weekend? Well at least Gallas didn't walk fifty yards away from his team for the PK this time around, lol
