I voted for Pitt solely because of cost factors.If you are thinking of staying in Indy, I'm curious if you gave IUI a shot? They'd probably give you a full ride, and it places well in Indy. Then, you'd have zero debt and a nice job in Indianapolis.Also, I'm leaning hard toward IUI and you'd be going to school with me! Also, I think Indy 500 tickets are going to be a hard thing to find again now that Danica Patrick looks like she is going to be a hot attraction in the years to come.EDIT: I see that you gave IUI a shot, and it appears that they gave you $$. I take it that you are no longer considering IUI since it wasn't a choice on this poll?
I agree with virtually every one of your sentiments regarding Pittsburgh. But you might do well to notice what your first sentence does. It condescends.You are right. Hopefully ya'll will find a way to look past the delivery and understand what I was getting at.On the other hand, I think my real point is not to say that Pittsburgh is the city for everybody, and that if you disagree you're immature or unintelligent. Rather, I'm only trying to get folks to take a closer look at Pittsburgh, rather than to dismiss it based on what they assume it must be like (i.e. just like all the other midwestern cities he mentioned).NYC, SF, DC, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philly -- all great cities. But none of these cities are for everybody. It bugs me that people are so much more willing to give other places a chance though. I'm not sure why this is, but it seems to be the case. It was even the case for me until I visited Pitt for a few days. Since then I've been on several visits and everytime I love it more. If I'm biased towards Pitt, it's only because it surprised me so much to like it so much. After I got to know the city of Pittsburgh, I realized that I'd rather go to Pitt than Tulane, Iowa, Wisconsin, Temple, and some other schools to which I'd applied. That was my experience -- take it for what it is.
I hear ya. If you like Indiana, you couldn't do much better than IU -- that's for sure.

At this point I'm trying to determine whether a few spots in the rankings are worth living in Bloomington (which i LOVE - don't get me wrong - but i grew up two hours away and went to school there for 4 years)....
