Looking for some advice/outside opinions...
I'm thinking about applying to Vanderbilt but not sure if it would be worth it for me; here's my situation:
1. I already have a spot at Wisconsin (deferral from last year's cycle) which is my in-state school.
2. Reapplied at Minnesota (was accepted last year, but didn't get a deferral) and would expect another acceptance this year. I also get in-state tuition there because of reciprocity agreement.
3. Applied at a few t14s; but I'm definitely not counting on getting accepted at any of them
I do have a cool soft factor, as I currently live and teach in China, and speak decent Chinese.
Would it even be worth applying to Vanderbilt (where I'm far from an auto-admit)? And if I were accepted would it even be worth the extra thousands of dollars of debt?
Any feedback would be great. Thanks.
