    I wish! I was “accepted” there to some alternate program than the one I applied to (GRE quant was crap). I opted for NYU. I’m here trying to ply my trade and stay busy before I go back to NYC for the fall.

    There’s still a RO16 game at Plaza Mexico to be played if you’re down to make the trek here! I’m sure our fans will be happy to see you ;)

    so historically, who would be considered Croatia's greatest sportsmen/sportswomen? Kostelic bro&sis, Goran or in modern times Modric?

    Maybe Dražen Petrović. His tragic death cut a stellar career short. Ivano Balić- the handball legend is up there, too.

    i am a big fan of a few of your female tennis players (not a big fan of cilic) and a big fan of borna coric -- just like the way they play (and easy on the eyes too!).

    Iva Majoli is the best Croatian female tennis player in history. Now, there's nobody notable.
    We are oddly good at the less popular sports that go to the Olympics. Rowing, sailing, shooting, water polo. These 4 net us medals regularly. Also, tae-kwon-do!!! There's always some medals in that martial art for us.

    Yes, Drazen.

    No specific branch- because I cannot take the bar exam, until I get some experience working on law-related jobs. Lawyers won't take me as an apprentice because I cannot drive. The municipal court happens to be in a remote location, and having a car is necessary to get there reliably in time. (Land plot deals tarred with corruption caused this)
    And I have a disability combination that prevents me from even getting a driver's license.
    Should've realized all of this before I went to law school.
