I'd been going back and forth between WFU (decent scholly) and George Mason (out of state sticker). GMU said there was a possibility of some scholarship money opening up, but I still haven't heard anything. Their seat deposit date is creeping up (4/15), and the deposit is $750! I can't justify that. I do want to be in DC ultimately, but the tuition just isn't worth it to go to school up there.
I was also still waiting on an admissions decision to UNC, but I've given up on them. Wake is actually cheaper for me than in-state tuition at UNC, the facilities are nicer, the classes are smaller, and people are friendlier. Carolina - you had your chance and you blew it.
So that's that. I look forward to meeting you all soon! (house hunt, perhaps?)
I got my waitlist last year on the last day. It sucked. I was in-state, so it sucked. But, just like you, it ended up being cheaper to go to Wake then UNC. And I liked Wake better for all the reasons you said. I'm really glad with my decision. Besides, I'd rather go someplace that treats me like they want me.
