Moni: Clearly, cost is a huge issue for you, but you're right, Columbia is a no-brainer. Sorry, roomie-that-was-to-have-been.

mantis, it's a shame that you can't go to the ASWs; keep in mind my answers are based on the assumption that you have answered based on full information... then again, if you knew you weren't going to the ASWs, then your answers were in fact made on full information.
I'll join the cool crowd: 3.23/173
Blinded by the light (Attending): UVA!!! Wahoo 2010!!!
Wrapped up like a feminine hygiene product (Accepted): UVA!! Fordham, Georgetown!!! NYU!!!!!!!!!
Another odor in the night (Rejected): Harvard

c&p, that's a tough one. As long as you're being honest with yourself, though, I'm going to go with UVA (surprising, given its infrequency in your answers, but I stand by it).

I said UVA because of Johnny's pattern

You are coming dangerously close to exposing my system and ruining its validity.

Actually, maybe not... I think it still works even if you understand the system beforehand.

Is the system just that you pick the one I said at the end? I feel cheated Johnny, here I thought you were hunched over an abacus carefully calculating my future,

Depends. Did you pick UVA because it was the first school that came to mind? Or did you pick UVA randomly? There's a difference.

Besides, although NYU seemed to dominate in the important categories to you, they dominated in categories that may or may not be speculative, and likely lagged in categories that are concrete (cost, for example). I'm confident that UVA offers you the best compromise. As long as you gave answers based on full knowledge, UVA is the school for you.

I think I picked UVA randomly. Does that make a difference?

As we discussed before I kind of want to get the @#!* out of Virginia. But I can't help but wonder if I wouldn't be dead set on UVA if only I was from another state originally. It's stupid to speculate, I guess, because I'm not. But really, I think UVA might actually be prefect for me, I just want to move farther from home. Crap. I suck at making life decisions. Johnny can I hire you to follow me around and decide things for me?

It makes all the difference in the world, unless they are one and the same. If possible, try the one that first comes to mind. Maybe wait an hour without thinking about it, or something.

By 'hour without thinking about it' do you mean happy hour? Cause if so, I'm on it.

I feel even more confident in my initial response. UVA it is for you.

c&p, you have provided me with incomplete information!!! You have not visited some of these schools (if any)! How can you hope to give me accurate answers without this crucial information!!! Hearsay will not do!

I don't have all the information in yet, but I'll give it a try. Considering GW, NYU, Michigan, Penn, UVa.

Quote
1. The school with the best location (factor in local activities, proximity to SO's, etc.)
Michigan is my favorite location in terms of where I'd like to live, NYU's location I like because there may be beneficial career opportunities by living in NYC (networking, internships during the semester, etc). Since I feel that job opportunities in general are not too different between the two schools, I'll answer this in terms of where I'd like to live and go with Michigan. Importance rating of 3.

Quote
2. The school that will overall cost you the least (cost of living included)
Haven't gotten all financial aid offers yet, but almost certainly GW. Umm, going to the cheapest school isn't important to me, but cost in general is very important. I'm ranking this as 4, given the latter concern.

Quote
3. The highest ranked school (according to whichever source matters to you; personal rankings count)
NYU. Least important (1), since three of the other four schools I'm considering are only ranked slightly below NYU.

Quote
4. The school that you think will give you the best job prospects (go with overall flexibility as opposed to what you think you might want to do, since that could easily change; factor in location as well)
NYU, by a small margin. Importance rating: 5

Quote
5. The school that best seems to fit your personality
Michigan. Importance rating 2, I suppose, even though I think this should probably be more important.

Quote
Finally, write down (or type, I guess) the first school from your list that comes to mind.

This question is silly  ;D Michigan.
