HELP: deciding between colleges
So the May 1st deadline is coming up and I am extremely indecisive. I am deciding between UGA and wake forest. I am from georgia so i have in state and will probably get the zell scholarship. I have the hope scholarship at the moment. Wake forest gave a generous financial aid package, so at the moment, wake forest is the better option financially. I am waiting to hear back from UGA's office to see if they can offer any more aid. I know UGA is good for journalism and after doing some research, wake forest is pretty good too (they have a strong communications department and then you can minor in journalism, film/media, etc.). I don't know where to go. I have toured both schools, both are nice. I will admit that wake is pretty small and people tend to group me with larger schools. That being said, I know i can find my fit anywhere. I'm just really conflicted. Please ask questions, give input, etc. Thanks3 replies
