I have applied to both, and I'm currently waiting for my decisions. Hopefully, I get into both places. (I'm pretty confident that I will; my GPA is a 4.0, and I've taken nine AP classes and multiple honors classes) But let's say I do get into both. Where should I attend? The major I put down for GMU was Government and International Politics. Being where GMU is, I thought that was the best idea for a major; plus, I love government! (Happy Election Day, by the way!) But that's not my only interest. I'm not QUITE sure what exactly I want to do. There are a lot of things I like and wouldn't mind doing for a living. Anyway, for VCU, the major I put down was Business with a concentration in economics. (That concentration is subject to change) I was reading on their website about the internships that are offered there, and it's quite impressive. Keep in mind that I probably will get my masters. I'm not sure if it'll be right after undergraduate or later down the road. I'm a really outgoing person, and I feel like I wouldn't feel at home at Mason because of its reputation as a "commuter school". I haven't had the chance to visit either colleges yet; though, I'm sure I will to get a better idea of what campus is right for me. I love cities, so VCU seems more appealing. But honestly, the core of what I am looking for is academics. What do you guys think I should do? This is so stressful, but it's exciting at the same time! Thanks, guys! Have a wonderful day!
