yeah I did and I know what you mean about feeling as though you pulled it out of a hat.  When it came down to it, I knew I liked BC so I just stopped thinking about it and wrote the check and kept it simple.

me too idontknow, Cornell's international program is a huge plus. We are very similar... Why did you pick ND over BC???

unclerico,

Well from my earlier post you can probably see that I don't mind being in a non-city environment for the next 3 years.  I think that fact alone turns a lot of people away from Cornell to start with and towards city schools such as Gtown. So for me that puts them on more equal footing for comparison with other factors. The biggest thing I like about Cornell is the small class size (180?) in comparison with the 500 or so class at Gtown.  This seems like a more intimate and exclusive experience to me, reinforced by an ivy league campus (not that GULC isn't nice, it is, but it doesn't have that "old" feel). 

With that said, I could easily be turned to the Gtown side because...well... both of these schools are top notch. Gtown has the unbelievable benefit of being the #1 school in DC.  The opportunities associated with this are incredible. I see summer employment being far less of a production at GTown than at Cornell who I am assuming have to move down into NYC/DC/Boston areas. Gtown students probably have more than enough opportunities within a metro ride. The campus is as nice a city campus as I've seen so if I were to be swayed by the city, the location factor gets an extra plus sign.

Overall, I would say you can't go wrong either way. Both places are going to get you where you want to go.  I would say ultimately it comes down to the location of the school.

Although I don't put a lot of stock in the difference in their rank, I picked BC over BU and GW and it helped that BC gave me that most money. It will get very interesting though if I get off a T14 waitlist, at which point I am fairly sure I'd go to the T14 regardless of money but I am starting to have doubts.

same here miller.  I just recently decided on BC over BU and GW.  This is a really good review from my own experience of visiting these three.  For me, I liked GW, but not enough to move away from Boston and where I would most likely want to work. Between BU and BC, it started out about equal but then the momentum went completely to BC's side.

not to be a pest...but

Did you submit additional info? GIve me the scoop, I'm on the waitlist too.

I'll quote someone else so i don't have to quote myself.  Just curious so that I can move on with my life is this is the first round of waitlist acceptances.

Congrats again though..you have some wonderful options

Congratulations!

Did you send them additional information or did this just come out of the blue?
