Now that some admission decisions are coming in and more expected for EA this week, I thought to start this conversation. There are so few direct admit schools on the West Coast, that it is a huge accomplishment to get any, period. But, if you or your child has options, it would be great to share your decision thoughts. I will start - my D17 has been admitted to USF and University of Portland, at this point, with comparable Merit $. Awaiting Seattle, Gonzaga, SDSU and CSUF. USF is closer to home, but may be too close for my D17, D17 loved UP when we visited, but seems to have a lot more Theology and strictly specified LA requirements.
