I've put my seat deposit down at Missouri Kansas City as well as a deposit on a apartment. I was deferred at Louisville, one of my top choices, and will be getting a yay or nay very soon. I am happy with UMKC, but it keeps bugging me rather or not its worth it to make a last minute switch to Louisville if they come through. Considering my lease at my current place ends any day now, I kind of need to be prepared to move at a seconds notice if I do get in to U of L.
I am interested in UMKC's family law, and the fact that KC has a larger hispanic community as I speak spanish. And KC is only 2 hours away, which would make for an easier move. I am not completely set on one concentration or geographical location.
So my question is this - is U of L that much better to warrant last minute chaos, losing ~$800 in deposits, and paying about 10k more over three years? My instinct is no, and I think they are both essentially regional schools (#94 versus T3). Any words of wisdom?
