I got an 11th hour waitlist offer yesterday. My decision making is thrown into a tailspin. Pros: Ample resources to support the work I want to do. It's clear faculty take supporting grad students very seriously. Generous funding. Cons: Family/health needs would make living in that area very challenging. Just screaming into the void a little, I know no one can make this choice but me. But holy shit, this is the biggest decision of my life?!
