How on earth did you manage to get $105K at UCLA and strike out at all T14 schools? That's usually unprecedented.

I'm guessing waitlists? Write LOCI's, and you should get in somewhere.

I'm assuming you're saying you got a full ride to WUSTL? Still, UCLA seems to be the better choice based on the info you've provided here.

Vandy/USC will give $$$ as well, and you'll want to leverage the schollys against one another.

Your cycle seems to be far from over, my friend.

Okay, so I took the liberty of looking at your LSN profile. Looks like the only T14 you have been shut out of is Berkeley. The rest are either waitlists, or still pending.

Like an earlier poster suggested, LOCIs are still in play. Have patience my friend. Also, a number of those other schools still might accept you, even with moolah.

"Unprecedented = never done or known before."

As in, it's unheard of to get $105K at UCLA and get shut out at T14. Or that has not been done. What the heck do you think it means?

It's either unprecedented or it's not, it can't be "usually unprecedented".

Of your options so far I would say it depends what region you are most interested in practicing in. I would probably take UCLA because I would much rather be in CA than in the mid-west personally, but I don't know where you are from or what your regional preference is.

However, with the big money you are being offered- from two T20 schools- I have a hard time imagining you won't get T14 acceptances (and maybe T6, I don't know your numbers though). It sounds like you are aiming for T14, so good luck with that!

I's say UCLA then WUSTL. Have you visited UCLA? Do it

I guess my reference was on a per cycle basis. It just doesn't happen most cycles. But nonetheless, I do see your point. :wink:

To actually answer the question.

1. Wait it out a little more. Have some patience. Your cycle is not over.

2. I too would probably go with either WUSTL or UCLA here (assuming no better options surface). Have you visited either school? Might be worth it to see what you think. You will, after all, be spending 3 years wherever you go.

+1 to all of this.

I saw this thread and thought I wrote it in my sleep--haha

Anyway, I have similar stats and similar offers from all three schools (a little less at UCLA). I'm also from the Midwest and see myself doing PI work as well (although this is not set in stone). Like you, I'm still waiting on other schools--mainly Michigan, Virginia and Stanford (a girl can dream...). Right now, due to regional preferences I'm leaning towards WUSTL, but I'm hoping and praying that Michigan comes through.

Would UCLA really be worth it for me if I plan on staying in Midwest/Chicago and if I went anywhere, ever, it would probably be the east coast?

Sorry for adding my concerns onto this thread--our (current) options were so similar it seemed pointless to make a new one. Good luck with the rest of your cycle--I don't think it's over yet!
