I'm also wondering if you could give the girl some advice on whether or not the city is so stunningly amazing that it would overshadow the mid-tier-ness of the Uni. I'm looking to be so impressed by the city that I don't so much care (totally subjective, I know, just looking for personal opinion).
School is expensive, I'm giving up a lot here to leave, soooooo...hence the major neurosises.
Thank You + 1000!
E-penpals in the same boat are welcome, dependent on sanity.
