14. What is your favorite article of clothing? don't really have one

15. What is your favorite song playing on the radio right now? I'm living in India this year, so the only songs I know are Bollywood schmaltz

17. Can you cook?  Not really, but I love to bake desserts.

18. What is your favorite sports team?  What sports team do you hate the most? Nebraska Huskers!  and the Chicago Maroons?  Least favorite is the Yankees.

Don't know what you mean by 'Devon', so I'm guessing I didn't go there. :)

But yes, you have found a fellow Philly classmate. I think I met one other during ASW.

I currently live in Philadelphia (I attend Drexel University), and finished up my last 3 years of high school an hour or so out of Philadelphia (Pottstown, PA).

devon prep..it's a boys' school in devon, pa, and its students kind of hang out with the girls from my high school.  i go to psu but i live in king of prussia.  cool!

I'm the guy from Devon...also a big Sixers fan.  I'd be on this thread more often if I didn't get a surprise acceptance from Columbia when I got home from ASW.  I'll be visiting there Monday, but Chicago will be tough to top.


haha I'm still waiting on Columbia (and Harvard)...but it's looking pretty bleak.  And I'm pretty sure I would still go to Chicago anyway.  Congrats and have fun in NY
