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

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Can mid 150 to high 150 get in to a second tier (or a respectable LS) in US??« on: July 28, 2005, 11:12:32 AM »
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.
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.
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.
