Alice in Wonderland

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter." (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, 1865, Lewis Carroll

I feel a lot like Alice right now. I’m stuck in a place where I have to choose between 2 great schools and it has become more difficult than I ever imagined. I’m positive that I’ll get a great education at both schools so from that perspective it doesn’t matter which school I choose. However, Louisville has offered me a graduate assistantship making it $60,000 cheaper than Gainesville. This makes Louisville much more pleasing to my pocket, but a part of me thinks I’ll be happier at Gainesville...It is a number 6 ranked school, the weather is a lot nicer, and its only 2 hours from Disney...but is all this worth $60,000? I’m not sure.

So where do I want to go? I don’t know. Only God knows where I’ll end up. I wish this decision was an easier one and I wish Cheshire cat had a better answer for me.
