Sell me on Virginia Tech

    @londondad - OK, fine, you win. Michigan is his No. 1. But as a huge Notre Dame fan - and subway alumni - for my entire life, that just pains me to say. :)

    Thanks. UM is a great school so that makes sense.

    @bsangs, Good luck with Michigan and your decision. Since you don't appear to be instate for our Virginia schools (as the OP is), your issues are different. If I had to pay more for Michigan OOS, for example, over UVa, W & M, or Virginia Tech instate, I doubt I would do it (unless I was very wealthy and my kid really did not like any of these instate schools, or my child got money from Michigan to bring down the cost, ).

    @sevmom - Hey, I'm just glad you all have such great public institutions of higher learning in your states. It's slim pickings in NJ. And thanks for the good wishes. I just want it to be over. Though the second my son is done, we jump right back into the pool with my daughter, who's looking at very different schools (smaller, liberal arts) than our boy.

    @comtech, did your student get in?? Our rising senior currently looking at VaTech Physics, just wondering if yours got in.
