Damn them. I'd pick them over anywhere except maybe Yale, too, but whyyy.

Boalt's truly unpredictable. For many applicants, it might be more difficult to get in at Berkeley than anywhere outside of HYS. For instance, according to Chiashu I have like a 95% chance at NYU (?), a 68% shot at HLS, and a 50/50 shot at Boalt.
I'm done with apps...waiting to visit schools and make a decision.

I was going to apply to Columbia because of the fee waiver, but since I have no intention of going there and no desire to get the dean's certification filled out, it's sort of up in the air.

i would go to certain schools if i had to. but yes, money leverage is part of my deal. i need all the money i can get.

I think that's why most people do it.

You have to get a dean's certification for Columbia?
