Re: [als02] Whittling Down "The List"

Hi there,

If you're concerned about funding, I'd rank your prospective additional schools as follows:

1t. University of Iowa
1t. Washington University
3t. University of New Hampshire
3t. University of New Mexico
5. University of Massachusetts at Boston

So, if you're adding two, go with WUSTL and Iowa. If you're worried about keeping your list balanced acceptance rate-wise, go with WUSTL and...well, in fiction I don't necessarily love your remaining options. I'd propose one of Penn State, University of Florida, Louisisna State University, George Mason University, or University of Alabama (hardest to "easiest" admit: Alabama, Florida, Penn State/George Mason, LSU).
