GW or U Texas-Austin?

I have to make my commitment by Wednesday and I am so torn and confused. I'll give you the pros and cons for me for both schools.


great city and nightlife
highly ranked
great weather
fun sports to watch
stronger in more academic categories
acting opportunity(have an agent there)

paying full price (im out of state)
no diversity- 92% of students are from texas
can be difficult to obtain classes due to crowdedness
Huge school-could get lost in the crowd in the classroom

George Washington
I'd get a life experience living in DC
best school for International Affairs
a little cheaper for me
perfect size for me (10,000 kids)
private-easier to get classes and connections with professors or transfer
amazing internship opportunities
can take a train to New York City for fun

i don't know if I want to go into politics for sure
wont be able to visit before I decide
no acting opportunity
no real campus-its just buildings in downtown DC
nightlife might not be as fun as Austin texas
possibly dangerous areas a ways away from campus

Texas is the safer option but I feel like I'll always regret not going to live in DC because its such a great opportunity.
