I would take Wake out of the calculus - it offers nothing that W&L doesn't and will likely be a similar price.

What about UNC? 

I would also consider Vanderbilt and Duke, in your position.

at UNC I would be paying full price.  They are very stingy.

As for Vanderbilt and Duke, according to the last 5 years of data on LSN, my chances are between slim and none.  I am applying to both of those though.  But expecting a rejection.  And not sure anyway if I want to take on that kind of debt.

Well, there is the possibility that one offers big $$$ and the other doesn't.  If W&L doesn't offer me anything but Wake Forest does, I'd go to Wake over South Carolina for similar debt.  So I will still apply to Wake.  But you're right, if neither offers the big $$$, then I probably should then remove Wake from the equation and decide between big debt at W&L or low debt as Carolina.
