I recently was accepted to both Midwestern University and Mississippi State University. I am so grateful for the opportunity, however it has been very stressful trying to decide where to go. After I interviewed at Midwestern University, everything about it felt right. The location, the people, the curriculum, etc. However, I also interviewed at Mississippi State and had a wonderful experience as well. The students were friendly and the curriculum is also great. I am hesitant to live in the south, where I have had bad experiences before. I am also concerned about living in a very small town since I am definitely a city person. I am leaning toward Midwestern, but I'm concerned that I am throwing away all of the potential connections I can get from MSU, since it is a more established school and offers a residency program for those who want to specialize. I know my hesitation for Mississippi State is based on not important factors, but I can't help but feel that way. I guess what I am trying to ask is, would it be a big mistake to choose a school based on a "gut feeling"?
