There is no wrong choice there.

Thanks guys! As of right now, I'd prefer to work on the east coast because that is all I have known my whole life. I have only been to California once and at the time I was 4 months old. I am fascinated with the possibility of going into the uncharted land that is California, but it is hard to properly compare east and west coast without visiting the west coast. As far as my area of interest is concerned, I have kept my mind open. Corporate law seems to be grabbing my attention currently, and specifically being a transactional attorney, but that could change tomorrow. If I get SEO, that will help determine whether I am truly interested in that field - but that's beyond the point. Just for this thread's sake, let's assume I want to be a corporate attorney, wouldn't UVA be better?

I'd imagine with rides to Cal and UVA that Penn would have fallen back a considerable distance in the race.

You're imagination would lead you to the credited answer. I visited Penn this weekend and I absolutely loved the people and the atmosphere of the school, but did not feel the same about the city of philly. On top of that, they said they could give me money but not full tuition. Since I also loved UVA's atmosphere and I am much more used to a suburban lifetyle, UVA just made all the sense in the world. Also, it would be much cheaper to just go to UVA. I woke up this morning knowing I was going to UVA and then Berkeley contacted me...
Ksimon- where are you leaning towards? To be honest, you cant make a bad choice. Penn and UVA are both wonderful schools - just one is in Philly and the other in Charlottesville.

I have to admit that I enjoyed visiting Penn. I sort of see Penn as stretching me a bit more insofar as it would be a new enviromnment and network. We'll see. I plan on deciding in the next two weeks.

Damn, less than two weeks ago, I was saying the same thing about Penn and you were sold on UVA. lol. The tables have certainly turned. I was kinda hoping we would be chilling in C-ville next year, but we both have to see what works best for ourselves personally. By the way, congrats on Cornell. Are they in the running at all for you? I recently got in there too, but I don't plan on going to Ithaca so I will withdraw soon.

There is still a strong possibility that you will at least see me next year! Of course my man Ksimon2007 is trying to get all "ivy league" now so I can't speak for him. :lol:

I wonder why I still haven't heard from my safety schools that I have no intention on attending now. Do they know that I'm not going there? submitted my apps over 2 months ago.

They probably know that you aren't going to attend, and they are waiting to see if you will withdraw. That way, you won't fuck up their yield percentage.

Just saw this. Man that is awesome! You are killing it this cycle. That's going to be a hard choice. Either way you can't choose wrong!
