Re: Which would you choose?

NYU on up will be able to place you geographically where you want, and I believe that maybe Michigan and UVA can as well (other people would know better). I think I would respond to why not Duke and Northwestern with a broader point: the rankings already incorporate a lot of information. Yes, they h...

Re: Which would you choose?

I don't plan on withdrawing from anywhere at this point. Rough calculations of COL differences between a place like NYU and UVA puts me at 75k more debt for NYU, which is on the conservative side. Haven't fully delved into it yet for the others. Northwestern would probably be less since Chi is more...

Re: Which would you choose?

If you already got into Columbia and Chicago and didn't get Hamilton or Ruby, then you're not getting it. This is def true for the Hamilton, I believe it is also the case for the Ruby. I would think it should be between UVA and NYU (maybe Mich should stay in play too, but simplify your life by taki...

Re: 1L Internship Abroad or RA?

I don't mean to sound like a dick, but I can't believe you're even asking this question LOL. Definitely take the internship abroad, that's awesome, congratulations. It is an experience firms will value more and it overall looks way better.

Re: Columbia: using cross-registration to gun for Kent/Stone?

Why would you do this with engineering--take B school classes, which would be easier and seem less random/questionable to future employers.

Vetting Firms

Any tips for how to make the most of/what to look out for at these receptions firms throw? I get different vibes from the firms, but generally it's not like any firm comes across as a particularly bad place to work relative to the other ones.

Re: Asking Professors for Help Finding Internships

Thanks, that's good to hear.

Also since this prof specifically told me they've helped students secure internships and jobs before, I feel like if I started by saying "when I was an admit, you mentioned..." it might help.

Thanks, that's good advice.

Re: Asking Professors for Help Finding Internships

The simple answer is, you should stop dancing around what you want and just ask the professor directly for help finding a job at the places you want. He was pretty clearly ready to help you, but you went in unprepared and didn't specify what you wanted. As for the article, I'm not sure what you mea...

Asking Professors for Help Finding Internships

1L here. Had office hours today with a professor who is a big name in the field. They have just 20m slots you sign up for. I had some time left at the end, and they asked what I was doing this summer. I said I don't know yet, and asked if they had any recommendations of where I should apply (which I...

Re: 1L/Diversity SA Thread 2019

What are peoples thoughts on sending in grades if they're not good enough? It's paranoid to think the recruiter will remember you ghosted them when August rolls around and that it would matter, right? Definitely send them. Especially to places you've already interviewed with. I had the same feeling...

Hi all! So what's the deal if we were accepted to Columbia but did not receive a Hamilton or Butler scholarship? Do they consider giving a merit-based scholarship like other schools do?

Re: HYS v Hamilton (no help from family)

HLS's max aid is around $46k per year. Take the Hamilton. Unless finances are absolutely not and never going to be a concern (like, one's family is so wealthy that even sticker at Harvard would be nbd), a person would be an idiot to turn down the Hamilton. Such a nontrivial fuck up to pass on a Hami...

Re: Columbia Students Taking Questions

Yes, and sometimes the combo of merit and need scholarship they give can exceed Butler. Last cycle they were really really late with aid, it was bullshit.

Re: 1L/Diversity SA Thread 2019

As far as sending grades after you've applied, is there any benefit to sending them as they come in, or will that just annoy the firms and you should send them only when you have gotten all grades back?
