Journeyman I am sorry that you feel that it is so hard. I however am not in the position to sympathize. Please...basically are you republican or do you feel that you will like being surrounded by republicans. If you will then go to Washington and Lee. Or here is a better solution visit the schools. I know, I know you have no money or the like. But come off it. It is a easy decision. You just pick. Look the reason I say that I am not in a position to sympathize is because I am not the type of person who asks for help. I really just don't get it. I am the ultimate decider(Bush reference) in my life. I picked my undergrad out of 8 schools. It was in boston and I went to the school unseen and I was happy. Make the decision either based on the money or just which area you think you would like the best. Washington and Lee is country Richmond is city. Stop the whining because that is how it comes across.
