Hey inthesun--Thanks for your input. I am actually leaning in the direction of UW for the time being. It is just starting to make more sense on all levels. I hope that a few more people decline the offer so that you and Giffy can get off the waitlist. It would be great to be classmates with you guys next year.
Unfortunately, visiting isn't an option for me. I am not going to be back in the states until July. I suppose I could turn in my seat deposit and go visit then and make my decision but I'd rather know where I'm going before then. I keep getting information that could sway me in either direction. I think, ultimately, it depends on where I'll be happiest. I know I like Chicago but I'm not sure if I'll like it for three years. I get stir crazy in the city without having an escape to the countryside. Nika--so you decided not to go to Seattle U? What made you decide on that? Sorry if you've already said that in this thread. I haven't read through all of it. gohuskies-I am assuming you visited Northwestern? What was it particularly that you liked about it? Feeling from the students/professors, overall quality of the facilities/area, etc?
