Mondo, yes, I'll still apply everywhere else RD, or at least most places. I love Chicago, but I don't trust myself to make a decision right now... I'd rather have options later on.
And par72, I've looked at Duke, but I've decided not to apply anywhere further south than D.C. for reasons of weather. Personally, I view Dartmouth's freezing temperature as a plus
Holy Cross, though, I hadn't thought about... I'll definitely take a look, thanks!
I'm particularly curious as to what people think about Swarthmore and Reed, as along with Chicago they're my favorite schools.
