Anybody current students that had been accepted at both Tufts and Univ. of Tennessee?

I had just sent in my acceptance to UTK and right afterwards, found out I got off the wait list at Tufts! I am interested in mixed animal clinical practice as well as international medicine. I am concerned about the size of North Grafton combined with the weather... and everyone seemed SO incredibly nice in Knoxville... but I wonder if Tufts may be a better program overall?

What drew you to accept their offer at one school or the other - costs? curriculum? the town? research opportunities? attitude of students/faculty/staff? Any constructive advice is welcome!
