Dunno 'bout top choice. I wish I was as awesome as you with your NYU acceptance and all. Maybe I'll get one too!

Congrats on the scholarship at Fordham. I hope I hear from them soon! I think they lost my application somewhere or something.

I'm thinking Michigan or Virginia. I'm definitely into the lower cost of living, friendly atmosphere, but still great academics and job placement. I'll be making up my mind as soon as I get my financial aid package from Virginia.
