Can anyone please provide me advise on choosing a grad school. I have 3 days to make a decision between 2 different schools and cannot seem to make a decision. I am deciding between the University of Washington and Midwestern University. The UW is very reputable, established, and ranked #9 by News World and Report. However, I do not like living in Seattle and worry that my next few years may not be the best experience. It is always cold, the health science building is run down and not study compatible in my opinion. However, it is the UW. My other choice is Midwestern University in Arizona. This is a smaller school and is less well known but I feel in my heart I would have a better experience. The campus is BEAUTIFUL and I desperately need a change. I have been waiting to move and cannot believe I am hesitating. My head tells me to stay in Washington and stick it out, but my heart tells me to go to Arizona. Do I make a decision like this based on my head or my heart? If I am happier in Arizona but may receive a less renown education, will that "hurt" me in the future???? Can you please tell me why you all picked the schools you did and for what reasons??? HELP!!!
