It wasnt purely financial, but that definitely had alot to do with it. Plus Im interested in staying in the south, AL, TN, GA, NC, SC, and I actually think that mississippi might have a small edge over kentucky in those areas, although kentucky does better else where. But Ole Miss has alot to offer too, so I guess it just came down to the point where i didnt think that kentucky was that much better to be worth the difference financially. I visited UK, it was nice, but nothing special. From what I hear, Oxford is a great place, so Im going to role the dice.
And yes, the Ole Miss hotties played into my decision :-). I only hope that at least some of them like my chi-town accent.
