I have a really difficult (and unexpected) decision to make in the next 10 days! I would love to hear any opinions/information you have about these schools. Here are some things I'm considering: I really like Rochester's curriculum. Davis' seems fine. The administrative support seemed stronger to me at Rochester, at least based on the interview day. I would like live somewhere outside of California at some point in my life and Rochester seems like a cool place, but I don't know how I'm going to handle the extreme weather. I don't have strong feelings one way or the other about Davis/Sacramento. My family is in California, but my boyfriend will be living in NYC. Rochester's estimated budget is about $10,000/year more than Davis', but I haven't heard from their financial aid offices yet so I can't really compare costs. I'm leaning towards Rochester, but as a California resident I'm hesitant to turn down a UC and move all the way across the country to attend an (arguably) comparable school. I'm also concerned that don't know very much about Davis. Please help! Thanks!!
