Hello, I just got accepted to 7 other colleges and I have narrowed it down to GWU and UCSB. I never was expecting to get accepted to these two and am not sure what to do. I am a bio major and I hope to pursue pre-med in college. These colleges are vastly different in the things they will offer me. GWU is a smaller campus, liberal arts, a lot more opportunities for internships, class sizes are smaller so that you can engage with your professor, etc... However, the price tag is 60k for me. On the other hand, UCSB is ranked higher in biology and universities on USNews. It is near a beach, so I am assuming and through research has fewer opportunities, class sizes are bigger, and the total cost is ~35k. Everyone tells me to go for the less expensive route, but my big issue is that I want my bio/pre-med foundation to be strong so I can get into medical school. What GWU has is what UCSB doesn't have. I am very conflicted and I need an unbiased perspective on this as decision day is coming up. Please help.
