    paperboi got a reaction from 20SLP20 in Is declining my only option crazy?   
    I was in a similar situation last year but chose to accept my offer. For me, it felt like I would be leaving too much up to chance if I declined my only acceptance. Sure, I could've re-taken the GREs again and aimed for better scores, but I was uncertain if that alone will that be enough to get me accepted in a different school. Also, given that I'm a horrible test taker, getting a better GRE score was not a sure thing either. I live in a competitive NYC area where everyone's vying for spots, so even though the school that accepted me had a higher tuition, I chose to take their offer. The decision was hard though, but now that I'm a year into my program, I'm glad I went with something that was guaranteed.
