1. Penn - i made some requests for Penn Preview and they were serioulsy ON THE BALL, responded to me immediately and they even figured out who i was when i showed up. (how do they do that before I registred?)

2. UVA - great admissions staff and very friendly. I would've been happier going there.

They have people.

it was slightly creepy actually. I had this woman greet me BEFORE i went and picked up my name tag. i was like whoa.

I'm very happy that my subtle alteration went unnoticed.

USC really sold me with their admit day. They've been really good at sending me stuff once I was admitted. Before that though, I didn't have much of an idea what they were about. They sort of pissed me off early in the cycle by returning my application to me because I had accidentally failed to check a box that they could have easily looked up (the one about having applied to USC before). That's a pretty petty concern though, so USC gets a definite thumbs up.

Michigan has been amazing. They're nice when you contact them, they respond promptly to e-mails, they provide WAY more information than other schools in a down-to-earth FAQ. They really go out of their way to give a good feeling about the school. I would have been sold on Michigan even without this, but I think it may have been a not insignificant part in convincing me that I'd be willing to wait a year if I could get in.

William and Mary was very nice, and they went out of their way to give me contact with current students and that sort of thing. In the end, it just didn't feel like a great fit for me.

i'm not sure i really have enough contact with the other offices to give much of an opinion. (see Emory and Texas for my negative reactions).

Wisconsin really turned me on, but then I got waitlisted.

Damn tease.

USC has the best viewbook ever.
Have you seen Stetson's?  I haven't seen USC's, but Stetson's is really impressive.

oh yeah GW was great.  Last summer I wasn't even thinking of applying there but then i found myself in DC and wandered into the admissions office on a random summer afternoon.  Dean Richard dropped whatever she was doing and took me on a personal tour.  Pretty great, the great staff kept them in contention till the end

This one kind lady at St. John's helped me out so much that I almost want to send her flowers.

Michigan by a mile.

Oh Dean Z, you temptress!

Yes, I agree.  Michigan.

Michigan and UVa.  Luckily, I'm waitlisted at both...awesome.

Michigan, hands down.
Would have loved 'em even more if they'd accepted me though.

Norte Dame was nice too.

Oregon was by far the best.
They sent me tons of information about the school and every email I sent was replied to within a couple of hours...it was almost eerie.

A big, manly part of me wishes that there weren't so many hippies up there because their sheer willingness to help was, well, ego-boosting.  I guess hippies aren't a good reason not to go somewhere, but they just make me. so. mad.
