--got accepted to campbell early feb

--got accepted from widener late feb
--3/9/07...on spring break, on friday, received my acceptance to usc and they are offering me 15,000 merit scholarship (5000 per year) it is tempting but its not my ideal law school. we'll see...still haven't decided yet...hopefully nccu will come thru soon b4 april 1!
-3/14/07 at this point i'm so confused right now...but i'm certain that my top choices are nccu, w&l, and usc when i got my first acceptance from w&l i was so gungho about it and then i started thinking to hard and doubting myself and my capabilities and my fin capablities to deal with a school thats in a pricerier region in va-->higher cost of living-->higher board expenses and overall its lil over 50,000 plus a year. on the other hand coming from a small town i would like the evironment and close knit community w&l has now if they dont have transit system which i assume they dont that would suck b/c i dont have a car.
on the other hand usc and nccu are located in larger locations that have transit system. both are more diverse esp nccu and nccu has a good reputation in nc. i ideally wanted be located in nc and not in sc. and at one point i was really determined to get out of the state but now i'm starting to think more and more about usc since i got their acceptance this past friday. usc would defn push me outta my comfort zone i would think but it prolly would be for the better...ugh....i dunno...
4/18/07 I have been decided this about 3 weeks ago...Some people out there may call me crazy for my decision...but after a lot of thinking...i decided with usc.
wl.....i am just not feeling 36ish thousand in loans the first year esp when i dont have mommy,daddy,trust fund, or savings to depend on... plus i would get homesick lol...
i am not concerned about which has the highest ranking and where u most likely to get better offering of jobs...if god got me thru this far hes gonna make sure i'll have the job i want when 2010 rolls around...if i spent time worrying about bob,dick,harry all the time i would never be happy....nccu is still bs'ing their time...but whatever...
