Last year I was accepted into a fully-funded program. I had heard not great things about the program, and it was in the middle of nowhere across the country. I spent a month trying to decide if I should just go because I got accepted somewhere, or if I should reject and try again the following year. I ended up rejecting the acceptance. Last year I wasn't sure I made the right decision, that thought creeping in my head often. What if I wasn't accepted this year? Ultimately, this ended up being one of the best decisions I could ever make. Regret is completely normal, but I ended up following my gut despite the many people who said I made the wrong decision. And now I was accepted at a much better fully-funded program in a city, as I always wanted!
