Hey, uhh your link to the "essay" takes me to YouTube

Really my advice ...

 I have to say it is absolutey essential for you to read this brand new essay by Anna Ivey about the process.

You'll be glad you did!

You've just been Rick Roll'd!!!

Not that you weren't warned, of course...



This was elaborate.

If you do poorly at Michigan, you'll wish that you were doing poorly at Harvard.  Because doing poorly at Harvard is better than doing poorly at pretty much any other school.

Doing poorly for free is pretty nice though.

Exactly.  I'd rather be bottom of the class at Michigan with 0 debt (cause I'm still getting a job!) then top of the class at Harvard with $150k of debt.

I'm glad I turned down Michigan for New Mexico.  A high ranking school does not always indicate a better decision.

Didn't get into Harvard though... if I had then... I probably would have dumped them too.  I even had my letter already written.

Dear Harvard,

In fact, imma request you do poorly to save me a spot in the top 10%.   ;)

I'll try my best  :P

I'm glad too.

We should keep in touch; see who made the better decision upon graduation.

How much money am I going to need for Applying to 10 T14 schools, seat deposits, and everything.

Do schools pay for you to go to admitted student weekends?

Just trying to get my budget for 07-08 worked out  ???

Depends on how many few waivers you score.  Apps are btwn 65-85 for the t14 (NYU's is 85 and was the most expensive I saw), and each lsdas report is $12. Seat deposits range from 0-500 (CLS's deposit is $500 whereas Chicago doesn't have a deposit)

Do schools pay for you to go to admitted student weekends?

Some schools will reimburse up to a certain amount (ie, I got a $200 reimbursement from Chi)
