I was one of them, and now the delima is--do I end this? I have 2/2 acceptances from the lower ranked schools with two more applications pending response. It's probably another month before they answer (based on previous year notifications in the results page). I got the geographic location I wanted, and it's one of the schools I've visited...so what if it's not one of the top ten in my field...it's great in related areas, smaller class sizes, and a couple research areas that I'm interested in. Will I wonder what the hell I was thinking in five years for not going to the big name school (especially if I prematurely accept a possibly inferior offer before I even know if I'm accepted at the higher ranked school)?
