So I posted a couple months ago for advice on how to get back-to-back interviews at Cornell and Columbia to save on airplane tickets. Well, I have been fortunate to recieve acceptances at both, but now I have the predicament of how to attend both second look weekends which are on the same weekend!!!

Any advice on this? I'm sure there are others in my situation. How do you think we should divide up the weekends? I only have the schedule for Cornell's second look. I think I am missing the info from Columbia because I don't see anything in my acceptance packet. Maybe we can collectively come up with a modified schedule?

What a nice dilemma to face ... congratulations on your acceptance to both places. As you well know, the second-look weekends are entirely for your benefit, so you could always begin at one and stay until you feel like you've gotten a fair impression of the fellow incoming students... and then split and go across town to the other. If that advice isn't specific enough, then I would say that at Cornell the most useful part of the second look weekend is the main dinner where you get to meet the other applicants. All the other stuff (eg, financial aid meetings, etc) you could learn about in August. I'm sure the same goes for Columbia. Congratulations!

The title of this thread made me scream with bestial rage for a full minute. I'm so jealous.
