This is really important to me, which is why SLS got the nod over HLS. Between the two, I felt like academically and employment-wise, there were only marginal differences. So knowing that Stanford would be the place best suited for my family, it wasn't too difficult to choose it over HLS.
As for declining the Ruby from UChi, again, I just felt like Stanford would be the best place for my family, and I felt comfortable with the projected debt figures coming out of Stanford. Rather than focus on the money I would be losing out on at UChi, I realized that graduating from Stanford with a manageable amount of debt was a great position to be in.
I respect and understand those who have chosen and will choose otherwise. These decisions are very personal and dependent on numerous factors. I feel confident that SLS is the right choice for me and my family, but I know that HLS and UChi are a great fit for others.
If anyone has any additional questions about how I arrived at my decision, feel free to PM me.
I don't think anyone is going to say you made the "wrong" choice, just that they may have made a different one. Congrats on a kick-ass cycle and enjoy Stanford.
