Plus the brisket wasn't all that great, which made me sad.
It looked an awful lot to me like the breakpoint for getting that 5k/yr was about 168, not 165. I originally got nothing (167), waved some other scholarship offers at them and got $2500, then appealed again on the grounds of personal wonderfulness and got the 5k.
- there was nowhere to eat by the school!!!! if you are there 10 hours a day, where does one get lunch???
I'm still waiting to read an out-of-stater's review. I spoke to one east-coast ivy grad who was also considering Penn and as we talked I kept thinking 'Dude, there is no way you're going to choose this school. What were you thinking?' He wasn't stuffy, but he was awfully hip in a way that I don't associate with Austin or Texas. Like Pupienus, I don't really want to get into differences because at a certain point it's all a matter of preference. I don't think I'm going to be that great a fit at UT (not just because I'm old) but I think it's big enough that I'll be fine. I don't need my law school colleagues to like the same music/books/movies that I do - I just want them to be smart, considerate, and occasionally funny.
...would be great if it weren't full of Texans -- no offense, y'all.
