Wash U vs Wesleyan?

Hey guys, so I've narrowed my college choices down to Wash U and Wesleyan, but I'm having a really tough time deciding between the two of them. I just returned from WesFest, and loved it, but I am visiting Wash U tomorrow. Some facts about me: I'm interested in the sciences, particularly biology, and could see myself going premed or getting a phd in some biological field. I play a few sports, play some video games, and like to go out on weekends. I'm pretty social, but can be somewhat awkward in novel environments/situations. Does anybody have any advice or insights he or she would like to give me to help me decide? Thanks.

    Thank you for directing me to that. My visit was very good, but that doesn't make my decision any easier. Both wesleyan and wash u seemed fantastic! I'm sure both are very strong academically, I guess it comes down to fit. Anyone have any helpful advice for a potential pre-med? In addition I play ultimate and fence competitively. I definitely study, but on weekends I usually party. I guess I'd say I'm in between being an introvert and an extrovert.

    Also, wash u is offering $20,000 more than wesleyan is in terms of financial aid...
