"$46,000+ annual student budget. Ouch!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Wake's a very nice school. It would be hard to decide b/t WFU and UNC. The only thing leaning in UNC's favor is the 20k+ I would save per year going there. All in all, though, I would probably pick WFU over UNC. (these things really are anonymous, right?)" Report Response
