Hey, I'm going to try a different approach to this process; instead of asking "hey guys, what do you think, school X or school Y" I'm plainly asking for as many factors you can think of that should be considered when decided between two schools... Here's what I have so far, please quote/add as you see fit: 1.) Academics (obviously) 2.) Weather (e.g. snow vs sunshine) 3.) Location (rural, suburban, urban setting) 4.) Expense of Living 5.) Location of living arrangements (possible) 6.) Confidence in faculty 7.) Number of 3/4 year residency sites 8.) Location of 3/4 year resiency sites 9.) Tuition costs 10.) Preceived happiness of current students what am I forgetting? hmmm Remember I'm not looking for answers to these questions simply for the questions. THANKS A LOT!!!! I hope this helps others as well!
