    Hi,

    I know all the factors I used to rank the schools I've visited and been accepted to, but I'm wondering what the rest of you thought. Also, I've been accepted at the following schools and am waiting to hear from UW. I'm leaning towards Nebraska but still not sure...Where would you choose and why? Or would you just wait to here from UW?


    Factors you would use to choose a school (my thoughts, feel free to add):
    -comfortable enviroment
    -good reputation
    -board score rankings
    -how students are prepared for the boards
    -professor accessibility
    -smaller class size (75 or under)
    -# of students going on to specialize
    -research opportunities
    -close knit classes
    -city: recreation in the area (bike paths/fly fishing/snowboarding/etc...)
    -
    -
    -

    Acceptances:
    -Minnesota
    -Creighton (no interview)
    -Marquette (no interview)
    -OHSU (Oregon)
    -Iowa
    -Colorado
    -Nebraska
    and....Waiting on UW (Washington)
