Seriously, have you ever heard someone say: “I wish I’d have gone to a small, rural, expensive liberal arts school in New England” ? Didn’t think so. Did a large university sound like too much fun? Too much drinking? Not into sports? Too many members of the opposite sex around? Scared you weren’t going to be able to express yourself as an individual?
If 18-22 year old you was that unfun, I can only imagine how much of a blast you are at 28, or 38.
I guess in the end I may have a built in alumni network in any city I move, a team to route for year round, and 4(ok 4.5) years of balls out fun, but you’ll have plenty to talk about with the other parents when you drop your kids off at Montessori school. Douche.
