Its fairly popular at my undergrad and other Indiana undergrads, at least it appears so.

I am also considering it.

I am somewhat concerned, however, about being "over qualified."

How will firms look at the salary required of hiring a young graduate with three degrees and no work experience?

I have not heard a single thing from American.

I had a 158/3.9.

Def an average applicant.  White female straight from undergrad. 

Was only outright accepted to IU-Indy, a Tier 2 (although I did shoot high in my apps).

I was waitlisted and not to much later accepted to Miami, also T2, but I applied really late there.

I was waitlisted and later accepted to IU-Bloomington, T1.

I was also waitlisted at American University, and The Ohio State University, T1 schools.

I was also waitlisted at Case Western University.

Granted these schools aren't in the New York area, but it is very possible to get into a T2, and a T1 is not out of the question.

Wait List / Re: Off Waitlist IU-B

Numbers 158/3.9

I did not do anything extraordinary to get off the waitlist.  I did send a letter of continued interest sometime prob in April, but other than that, no contact.  I did not visit the school. 

Both schools have international programs.  IU-B has semester study abroad programs, while IU-I only has summer programs.  IU-I has a strong rep with the Indianapolis area firms.  I do, however, have a better Finaid package at IU-I, and tuition is a little cheaper.  And then there is the ever present cost of breaking a lease and moving twice in a month........

I havent visited Bloomington, but IU-Indy is just as friendly, and I did get less financial aid from Bloomington, but Bloomington is also a much better ranked school (Although i am well aware of the controversy over rankings, IUB is 35 and IUI is 99ths).

I am truly stuck here, I have no idea what to do.

Wait List / Off Waitlist IU-B

I just received the call today.  Now a new problem.

I was planning to attend IU-Indy.  Because my current lease is up on July 29th, I had to sign a lease, and just moved into that place last weekend.  Now I would have to break my lease and find new housing in Bloomington.

Are the differences between IU-Indy and IU-B significant enough to justify this expense and hassle?  Any thoughts would be appreciated as I have to decide by thursday.
