50% yesterday, submitted deposit.
Here's my issue:
I want a major city like NYC/DC/West Coast.
I didn't apply to C.ornell simply because of this reason. If I go to WashU I basically should be going to C.ornell, which is tons closer to my bf and family.
You can't change what you can't change. (Or you can wait one year...) I had no idea I would do as well as I have done this cycle and have places that I wish I would have applied...that are ideal for my interests. But there is nothing I can do about that now. WashU places very well in the east (not the west so much)...go there, commit to doing well, and use their amazing resources and amazing career center to help you get where you want in the end.
Or go to Cardozo and be near the bf, and be happy with it, knowing that having him close was more important than school ranking. That IS an OK choice!]
At this point in the game, don't fret over where you didn't apply, because you cannot change it. Look at your options, and decide what is more important. You have some GREAT choices!
I really agree with this statement. Going farther away might make you miserable. I've been in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend for 2 years, and I chose WUSTL because it was closer than my other options. I also want to work in the area, as does the bf, so that might not help you.
But if you do end up at WUSTL, it will be a pleasure to meet you and everyone else who will be going there in the fall. I'm super stoked.
