Mominva, you're convincing! The checkbook is almost ready. Yup, NCSU is big, so is UNC, my D's mom's alma mater, but they were good for us and there aren't many really good NC in-state schools that aren't big (UNC-Asheville may be intriguing for our next college bound kid). I appreciate your input, and my D will too, as I think you've helped waylay my hesitations about investing in Elon. I think it'll happen. Thanks.
