Well, all my college decisions are in. And, as is the custom with things in my life, it’s not going to be very easy to decide where to go. Northwestern finally wrote back only to say, in effect, “we’ll tell you later.” Wait-list, huzzah. So unless I get accepted there, it’s either Boston College or University of Virginia. Neither of which is very shabby, to say the least. But that’s part of the problem: I have no idea which I would rather go to.
Money, of course, is one big factor, and UVA is considerably cheaper than BC. So in order for BC to pull ahead I need a really, really clear benefit of going there instead of UVA.
And that’s where all of you fine people come in. I’ve done a lot of research on both schools, and still have no idea where I wanna go. So, I was wondering if any Dopers out there attend either school, or know about them enough that they could offer some helpful persuasion either way.
To help out, I’m very interested in becoming a journalits/writer, so I’m looking at each school’s English departments. But I also want really good music/theatre depts., because that’s hopefully going to be a big part of my college experience. A number of other things are also being considered, like social life, campus, housing, and of course concentration of Female Doperettes in each area.
So please, for the love of God, help! I have no idea, and any words of advice would be more than appreciated, they would be revered!
