the generic New England liberal arts school surronded by mountains but walking distance from a small (but cute) town,
or the hard-to-get-into arts school that's a half hour from Manhattan, but a slightly ugly campus, and walking distance from nothing?
(edit- I've been accepted to all three- Rhode Island College for Drama, Mass College of Lib Arts for Writing, SUNY Purchase for Dramatic Writing, and I should mention the RIC is a slightly ugly campus as well. I left their ranking slightly ambiguous, as I thought I would get into my first choice. Oh, well.)
