    When we searched for STEM school for DS, music opportunities was an important factor. We found them in different flavors at most schools. I'll mention here because for others it could be a "little thing" that helps offset academic stresses.

    We dragged mine to VT almost against his will since his mind was already set on one school. There we met a prof in his intended major who ended up spending four hours with him, touring, talking & having him sit in his class. That type of interest in one prospective student, especially in a school the size of VT, was amazing. He hasn't picked yet because financial aid, if any, could play a factor but it went from one strong favorite to two strong favorites.

    @lakemom :) I couldn't help but giggle at that story.

    My DD chose her school because of the food! Oh, and the financial aid was pretty good too!
