I'm kind of in the same situation as you except with a small reverse.  I have just lived in Nashville a few miles from Vanderbilt's campus for the last 3 years, and I am trying to decide between USC(and I have never been to LA), Vandy, and Notre Dame.

The best idea is to visit, but if you can't, here are a few things on the area (warning: I am biased towards how much I like Nashville):

Vandy has a beautiful campus with great facilities and lots of stuff to do nearby and a great downtown that is not too intimidating or large.  You will need a car b/c public transportation is virtually zero in Nashville.  Supposedly they have a good graduate housing but I have never seen it.
The campus is pretty progress and open-minded, but Nashville is fairly conservative (though for the rest of the south, it is more liberal).  Remember it is in the Bible-belt.
The weather is great.  It snows maybe twice a year and it usually melts the next day.

If you can't visit and wan't to know anything about the area, just ask me.

May 26...Nice and later than everyone else

Has anyone heard back yet about the total financial aid package with grants and loans and all that fun stuff?

I went to a small school in Nashville near Vanderbilt and knew a lot of different Vandy law students and Vandy law alumni.

They never really came off as being snobby at all (just fairly southern aka republican)

Iīm stuck between WUSTL, GW, ND, and Vandy (and USC but that seems off the discussion topic)

WUSTL offered me a nice scholarship (70K total) and ND too (30K total), but I worry that I need to go to Vandy or GW for national employability.  I might just be letting the rankings control me too much, but I donīt know what to do.

I want to work in the NE.
