I got accepted by UW-Madison, an hour drive from home, a familiar environment, and with people I know.
As the days get closer to April 1, I feel like I'm losing interest in the Ivy's and am seriously starting to hope I decide to go to Madison!
Right now, if I get accepted to any Ivy school, I plan on going...but is that wise? I've been to Madison, I've experienced college life there, and I love it!
Anyone have an opinion? Ivy for basically prestige and a good education...or Madison for familiarity, still good education, and laid-back Midwestern life?

It depends on the program... I guess that's why any student would pick their "Public Ivy" over the traditional Ivy. However, it always feel good to know that you are ivy bound though.

UW! unless it's Yale or Brown.

What Yale or Brown?! You put Brown in the same category as Yale!
Brown is not even close to Yale, if you were to compare Yale to something compare it to Harvard or Princeton at the least!
Lol sorry, I just have strong feelings for Yale...

Depend on how you define "good eduaction"! To discover the unknown or to enjoy the familiar environment? To go out and challenge difficulties or to rest comfortably in back yard? UW-Madison and Ivy's are different but they all are great. If they have several options to chose from, people will regret regardless what option they chose. The question is which decision is more regretable when they look back 5, 10, or 50 years from today.
