Thanks so much for the input, you two. Anyone else have an opinion? Am I completly crazy to be even thinking about Northeastern? I'd love to hear input from someone who was also accepted to both, and why you're choosing what you're choosing, or anyone with an opinion at all

$7500/year. Not something that I would say is going to make a big difference, considering how much I'm going to be in debt anyway

I gave myself a deadline of March 31 to make my decision, and its getting close to that time. I've got it narrowed down to BC and Northeastern. I like NU's coop program a lot, they gave me a bit of money, and their location is a bit more convenient for where I'll be living next year. I like BC's campus (its very much like where I am now), their atmosphere seems really friendly, and clearly its ranked much higher. If you were in my position, which would you choose? Any input would greatly help, thanks so much!

new building will be ready in 3 years- they said
Villanova seems to have a habit of thinking that if they say a building will happen, then it will. I was told that I'd see a new boathouse before I graduated, and they've yet to break ground. Wait on this promise until you see construction actually start

The new buildings in conshy are really nice, and pretty pricy (i looked there because I row for Nova, and we practice right down the street). The best places to look for more affordable housing are conshy, manayunk, ardmore, parts of wayne, and the king of prussia area. Thats where my friends who don't have daddy paying the rent check live. Definatly avoid college hall apartments and bryn mawr gables in bryn mawr, they're undergrad party central and you will never get any sort of studying done, plus they're expensive. I don't think the cost of living itself is super expensive here, its more that so many people feel the pressure to drive a lexus and dress in polo and carry designer handbags, etc, because that's what the culture is like around here. Plus if you own property, taxes are crazy expensive. Radnor High, right down the street from Nova, is the public high school considered the Harvard of High Schools. And the bars in the Nova area always have good specials, so you can even go out cheap when you have time!

GO CATS! I'm sitting here in my apartment watching it alone, because I'm stuck on campus over easter break. A win would make it okay!

Have you already recieved your first bachelor's? If you have, as I'm sure you know, any more classes you take won't effect your GPA. But the best advice i can give (and this probably isn't all that helpful), is to think about your reasons for wanting to attend the t14. is it because you think you'll recieve a better education and have significantly better prospects? or is it because you want to prestiege and recognition of going to a t14?

Today I withdrew from Quinnipiac and Temple. Good luck to those of you who want to go to those schools!
