McGill vs. Vassar
I'm deciding between the two, and I know they're very different. I didn't really know what kind of place I wanted when applying, and figured I would have figured it out by decision time, but didn't, of course, so now I feel like I'm comparing apples and oranges.
I know the decision largely comes down to big city vs. close community. What do you think are the pros and cons of the different environments? What about the schools specifically? I am visiting them both in the next couple weeks, and hopefully one will draw me more than the other, but any advice is definitely appreciated.
BTW, McGill would cost about 12k/year, while Vassar would cost about 25k/year. My family is willing to pay for either (with me helping a bit with work-study and loans for Vassar), but it is still a consideration since we're not rich.
