Actually, in my area there are more jobs than workers.
Due to the Olympics/expansion many places are offering above minimum wage for burger flippers. If I really wanted a good paying job, I could just move to Alberta. It's going nuts in terms of jobs. 15$ an hour to work at McDonald's...
I was leaning towards option 3, only because it would increase my GPA due to the "big fish in a little pond" scenario. I wouldn't have as much competition.
Option 2 would just be so convenient. Option 1 is probably the best option, but I really don't want to go to a school full of "study harder, study harder". I'm not trying to be racist, but a school full of school obsessed Asians isn't my dream school.
There are a lot of things to consider.
You guys also need to know that all three of these universities are still good, I was just rating them in terms of each other. Option 2 is probably a better arts school, while Option 1 is a better science school.
I'm not trying to decide between DeVry and the University of Phoenix here.
