You have several schools that you're thinking about and, maybe, you're even surprised and pretty excited, but now, actually, we find often the most confused, 'cause now you have to make a significant decision that really dictates, sort of, the beginning of the rest of your life. Which place should I go to? The truth of the matter is you need to do your homework, you need to really do a deep dive into the nature of these institutions and ask all of the questions you possibly can, of yourself, about one thing, and that is, "Where will I be deliriously happy?" If you can answer that question, by looking at these respective institutions, and part of it might be even in the engagements and interactions you might have with undergraduates who you talk to, or other people who've attended there, if you can answer the question, "Where can I be deliriously happy?" then that's the answer to the question, and that's where you should go.
