Im imaging most people are going to put rank at the top, but not all...

Location was the biggest thing for me, and then rank, then cost.

Location>cost>rank 

Although I valued rank the least of the 3, I placed heavy weight on regional reputation.

Yeah, it's not so much rank as it is reputation, percentage of students with jobs upon graduation, the professors, the class sizes, etc.

Of course, a lot of those are used in determining rank, so....

Mine was Location, Rank, Cost.

I'm not interested in leaving my state but I wanted the highest ranked school within this area.
To put it bluntly, I seem to have a whole superstructure with no foundation. But I`m working on the foundation.

 :D I understand this one. I think going to Ann Arbor would be amazing.. but it would also be difficult to be surrounded by hard ore football fans that arent rooting for the Gators!
