<pre><code> First off, Brown vs Columbia. Here's my deal. I love New York City, but I'm only fond of the CORE; I like to read, but I'm not really completely interested in the depth the CORE goes into of old white guys' ponderings, aka the roots of western civilization. I love Brown for its open cirruculum because my interests are diverse enough that I value that immensely (thinking of comp sci, econ, and english as possible majors). Both campuses have great atmospheres. I liked them both for that and Providence wasn't exactly ideal, but I could definitely manage. Overall, I'm leaning toward Brown because I felt more at home, but I mean... err it's so hard.
Secondly, Can I stay on a university's waitlist if I say yes to Brown, because this is also could possibly influence my decision. At Columbia, it's clear you can, but Brown's card implies that you are agreeing to enroll at Brown; there's not even a deposit or anything!
Can anyone help me out here!!
