Yeah..I'm just wondering if I should do this now or wait til I know what the financial packages will be for sure. I don't want them to think I'm overzealous or something
It's a buyer's market. Schools want you. Don't be a timid pushover.
UVA is the obvious choice as is, but I expect Cornell to come in with a very strong offer. It could very likely be better than UVA's.
UT just doesn't make a whole lot of sense given the other stronger options (and eventual options) on the table.
Cross Emory off. That option shouldn't even be entertained.
