I was sort of surprised to see this thread revived, I thought for a minute it was another one of mine that had been edited. Anyway, I decided on UCLA for a couple of reasons. First, I want to go into entertainment law, and Bloomington isn't really an epicenter for that. Or anything for that matter, outside of studying and drinking (no offense to anyone who lives there and loves it, I'm just more of a big city girl at heart). Second, I visited the school again and loved it, loved LA and so did my SO. He works in entertainment already and it's going to be much much easier for him to get a new job in LA now, vs. staying at his job and then moving in three years, where he might have to get his foot in the door all over again. IU had actually offered a full ride in the end (although they have been vascilating between a full ride b/c of in-state tuition and not giving me in-state tuition, which I find highly annoying) but it's just not worth it. Lastly, with the two median starting salaries, the loans I would have had to take out and the repayments are fairly comparable when adjusted for ratio of income. So there you have it, I'm going to UCLA, and I can't wait!
