So is anyone going to defer until 2008? I found the e-mail to be intresting especially the fact that so many people chose Miami this year. Ah, well. More friends. More competition

Realistically, for all we know they send this out every year as a way to get people to withdraw if they aren't attending. If it is unusual, I just hope it doesn't cause the section sizes to be much bigger-- I didn't sign up for a 100-person-section-size!Jilli, I keep saying the same thing about not backing out. I am freaking out a bit now...I mean I've had a job since I was 15! I don't think I've ever lived on 7k a year! (7k is what is left over after tuition and assuming 12k/year for housing).
I'm deferring. I hope I'm making the right decision, but I wish all of you good luck this fall!
Well, to be honest I need to get my finances and life straightened out before I move down. I was going to have my parents help me out but it would have put a huge strain on them. Taking the time to work and make some extra cash/pay my debts seems like the right thing to do. I really wasn't thinking about deferring until they sent the email, but after considering my options it started to make a lot of sense. Plus, I'm only 21--I'm in no rush.
