If any of you managed to get into your top choice and turned it down for some reason (financial, location, extenuating circumstances, etc.)... are you happy with your decision?
My fourth(ish) choice school offered me generous scholarship money, and I am not quite willing to pay the $45k/yr tuition for the ones that I got into but probably liked a bit more. My question is, do you regret turning down your top/second choice school, do you constantly wonder what things might have been like, do you think it affects your attitude at all?
I would love some feedback. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to discuss it on the board.
