2 hour meetings at 9pm about legal phrasing are not fun.
Masters programs everywhere are cash cows for universities looking to churn out degrees. You are cannon fodder and nothing more no matter where you go. Also you're a second class citizen applying for PHDs in the US because if you were any good you wouldn't need a master's degree. I say this as a masters student at a tier 1 institution, the good thing is my employer is paying for my degree. And I don't know what you mean by tiers but if it's not top 10 in general,...
Are either school even top 10 in MA English? I just googled some rankings and they're not showing up. I wouldn't spend money on a non top 10 program for a masters, that's basically blowing money away on something almost completely worthless.
Read what Manton wrote, then read it again. Wait 2 days, and read it again. People ALWAYS overestimate their ability in things like this. Sure I know some people who became professors, but I don't think people realize AT ALL how hard it is these days. There are thousands more qualified PHDs than professorships. I know people who are top top of their field (as Manton says, Harvard PHDs) who can't find jobs at tier 2 and even 3 universities. Everyone thinks they're...
Princeton has a class size of 1200, of the people who want to go to Law school, there are probably 400 students (Philosophy, History, PoliSci, English, and WWS to a much lesser extent, Econ are the majors who generally go into law). Of these 400 students, probably 200 of them are actually academically competitive. YLS accepts 1-2 students from Princeton a year, you want to be top 1% at Princeton, it seems rather difficult it's not something you can just "work hard" to...

Most of us screw up for awhile and then snap out of it one day and try to put something good together...
A headhunter.
I think I sent some messages to Imagewis regarding this before, but I was in a similar situation once. 1. NYC costs about 2.5x as much as Florida. 2. If you have a finance degree from a Florida school, you're not finding a job that's not complete bullshit if you haven't found one already. 3. You probably can't afford most parts of Manhattan without a solid job. 4. Living in Queens/Brooklyn ain't bad at all. 5. You can't afford UWS unless you live North of 110ish in...
Is this financial models as in quantitative finance, or corp fin. There's a pretty big difference between the two.
If you intend to climb Hua Shan, you should know it is fairly difficult and about a hundred people die a year climbing it.
