It's a tuff decision. UO is where I have I wanted to go for the past 2 years. If WU hadn't have moved from a tier 4 to tier 3, my decision would have been easier. I am just really afraid of losing the scholarship and kicking my self for going to a lesser school for roughly the same price. I have until sunday to decide if I still would like to attend UO.
I would say UO, unless you are definitely drawn toward government work in Salem. UO tends to outplace Willamette in the Oregon job market.And Eugene is a WAY cooler place to live, for what it's worth.
If I had gone to Willamette, I would have wondered "what if?" forever. I liked Willamette enough to withdraw from the other schools I applied too except for UO... but now I will be a part of the University of Oregon School of Law Class of 2011. Thanks for your replies.
