I just need to hear some opinions on what to do. I just got a call today that I got into the University of Chicago. Right now I am in Ithaca looking for apartments at Cornell and was ready to sign a lease tomorrow. What should I do? I have 21,000 a year at cornell and dont have chicago's financial info yet. Should I sign the lease? Where would you go? Cornell is closer to home and I'm already kinda settled there, but Chicago is the better school and has some great opportunities being right in the city. Any opinions whatsoever will be greatly greatly appreciated!!!Stacey
These are still both T14's. If you want to work on the East Coast, Cornell will likely have a slight edge. So I say take the money. Opens up many oppertunities to take jobs you want instead of jobs you have to. This is assuming there is no aid other than loans from Chicago.
