I was deciding between some of the same schools..I visited all 3, and ruled out Duke right away even though they offered me 30K, mostly because of location (Durham is awful if you've lived in Chicago all your life!) and - like you said - the homogenous student body. I did love the professors at Duke, but students definitely seemed nerdier at Duke compared to both GULC and USC, even though they're probably all pretty equally intelligent. USC seemed nice (the campus is beautiful) and people were pretty cool..def. the place to go if you like the smaller class sizes, b/c you know GULC's are out of control!! Got 30K from them too, but decided on GULC (w/ zero $!!) oh well..
Good luck w/ the decision.
I love how Georgetown went from barely in the decision making process to where you are going. I suppose that says somethin for the school. Either way, see you next year.
