College

I now have all of my information about college. Here's how the cards fell

Accepted-
Binghamton
Endicott
Lesley
Boston University
Simmons

Waitlisted-
Northeastern

Rejected-
Harvard
Tufts

So, with that I am seriously looking at Simmons or Boston University. The others have reasons that disqualify themselves. Between those two, though, it is very close. BU is bigger, more expensive, has a better name, and would present a lot of opportunities, but Simmons is small, close-knit, supportive, and would be a better "deal" financially. Thing is, I would probably graduate with essentially the same degree at both places. I would go education with a concentration in creative writing or English. So, its just a matter of choosing the apples or the oranges. If anyone has an opinion, by all means, share. I am going to BU over spring break to find out a little more. I just really hope that they are good choices either way.
