and when i got to the mailbox, THE LETTER WASN'T THERE.  I was almost excited about getting rejected.  Oh Yale, how you continue to find new ways to disappoint me.

seconded.

Looks like Yale isn't gonna be for me. At least my first rejection was from a school I never expected to get into anyway, it's a nice way to lead into the rest of them. Yahtzee!

Penn might have to wow me to get me out of New York and/or Cambridge as well.

I withdrew from NYU already.

yc: Would you really consider Penn over Columbia with $$?

It would probably have to be Penn with $$ too.

Quote from: Stanley James Watson III link=topic=53459.msg1057549#msg1057549

er...  why are you looking at penn and not nyu?

For a few reasons, one of them being Penn's Wharton cert program.

I am also hoping Penn will give me some $.

It seems to me that Columbia and NYU are very similar schools in many ways. And Columbia gave me $$ while NYU gave me $0, so I don't see any reason to pay $50k for NYU versus $10k for Columbia.

how are they going to beat a full ride?  :D

It's not totally full ride, so Penn still has some room to compete (~$10k).

Also: honestly, one of the (many) reasons I have not withdrawn at Penn despite withdrawing at NYU and Gtown is a morbid curiosity as to whether I can make it past Penn's notoriously squirrely yield-protection measures.

Yeah and I'm tempted by the certificate program as well, but really it's more of a gimmick than anything else.

And you also get the pleasure of knowing that you made it past the yield squirrels.
