I was stopped on I-85 in Greenville South Carolina by a Greenville City police officer. I was arrested and was not read my rights. At my trial they claim that the patrol car did not have a camera but I know for sure it did. There was a camera I did see it. I am now serving 30 years in prison. I was not speeding and the police followed me for a while before pulling me over. There was also an individual with me who was arrested with drugs and gave the officers a statement that they were carrying drugs and I was charged with them.

Congratulations.  8)

UNC... good school, decent shot of getting in off the waitlist I'd say. Waitlists are a tricky beast though.
Put it this way - I just got waitlisted by Harvard and I'm sure you got a much better shot than me.
Good Luck!

Cooley vs. Anything = Anything.   

Without knowing anything about Capital, it isn't Cooley..... so I'd go Capital.

Buffalo is really respected in Western NY, but I don't think it's going to help you get a job in NYC. Same with Syracuse. Probably great for Central NY, but not going to far after that. Thats why if you want to work in Long Island/NYC I would definitely vote Hofstra. 

As for Florida, I don't think any of these school is going to have an advantage over eachother in Florida.  You probably would have been much better off going to school down there if that is what you want.

Let us know what you decide! I'm intrigued.  My bet is you stick with the Orange.

It is always still possible to negotiate a merit scholarship. Always. However, some schools will be more open to it than others.  Still, I was surprised at how easy it was to get schools to give more money just by asking.  And definitly try to play the two against eachother. It works.

As for which one to go to... I think you pretty much answered that in your own post.  Their ranking isn't going to make a monumental difference and it seems like you are way more into GMU. If that's the case, go for it. It's a great school with a better price in the city you want. Can't beat that.

I got pretty similar packages from these two also.  I have BC ahead of Cornell and I'm not even as high on Boston as you are.  Cornell was a great place when I visited... I don't think its $90 thousand better than BC though.

It seems as though the most frequent advice currently is to take the money. Especially, if there are no stipulations.

I think there should be a decent amount of people getting into Loyola off the waitlist.  As you move down the rankings it seems as though more and more waitlisted students are accepted.

I toured both Loyola and Pepperdine. *Personal Opinion* - It seemed like Pepperdine had A LOT more going for it. But like Legend said, its all up to the individual.

As for your current choices, all else being equal I'd say USD. But again, thats just me living your life.
