I applied for: Dartmouth, Duke, Upenn, Emory, Northwestern, Wash U, Princeton, Brown, Ga Tech, UGA
I got into all of the above except Upenn, Duke, and Dartmouth. I didn't check Princeton, but I assume I didn't get in.
Which should I choose? My most likely option right now is Washington Univeristy in St. Louis. But I heard rumors that it was overrated. However, I visited campus during the winter and loved it, although I didn't see classes because it was winter break. They are giving me 7k in scholarship money and 3k in workstudy, so its my most likely option.
However, I also heard that Brown's admission rates are VERY low this year (around 8 percent). If that case, I feel like its kind of a waste to go to Brown. Furthermore, I don't really know what I want to major in Brown, because I have pressure from my parents to make a lot of money, so I am looking forward to a career in medicine (hence why I want to go to Wash U- they have an excellent grad school). I like liberal arts specializing in rhetoric, such as history and philosophy, but I do not plan on studying law, nor do I think my parents are willing to pay 40k a year to make me an "enlightened" man (Sorry Aristotle).
I applied to Ga Tech if I want to do engineering, but I heard life there sucks.
