I have two (or three choices). I can go to SUNY Geneseo (im from NY), for approx. 13k a year. Suny geneseo is a new york state school, its small and liberal arts, and the toughest of the suny's to get into. I can go to James Madison (22k/year) which is also a state school in Virginia, but not nearly as academically rigorous as either geneseo or wake, but the weather is nice. Or I can go to Wake Forest (right now, my top choice) for 42k/year and i didn't get any merit or financial aid. This fact is hindering me from making a choice. Is it worth the extra money to go to Wake Forest, an academically rigorous school? Do you think it would be wiser to choose that school becaues it is better known and possibly more connections w/ the work-force? Would having a lower gpa at wake (because of grade deflation) just hurt me in the long run? i am having a tough time deciding, and tomorrow is MAY 1ST!!!! this is the hardest decision i've ever had to make in my life.
