Good point. Thanks a lot! Reading that was pretty insightful.. I've got to start crossing some schools off. It's just hard having to lay everything out and cross-examine what is most important at what school. A big factor for me is the cost, so if I was waitlisted at Miami anyways it's not like they're going to give me merit aid. You've made my choice pretty clear! Thanks, SeekingUni & best of luck to you at the U of M!
