What's next?

So, you have your decision in hand and the offers from other schools are either in or on their way.  Now what?

Obviously, you can find out about academic departments on the UVa website.  What else do you want to know about life at UVa to help you make your decision?  In the comments on the entry about admission officers, there's been a request for information about food in Charlottesville, which I'm more than happy to cover.  I have a feeling I need to write about the weather since we often get asked about the clothing students wear hereWhat other topics do you want to read about on Notes from Peabody?

I'm going to keep a running list of topics I need to cover in posts over the next few weeks, as you make your decisions.  Suggest your addition in the comments below and I'll edit the list.

Reader submitted topics for future Notes from Peabody posts:
  • Food
  • Weather
  • UVa's Honor Code
  • Political climate
  • State funding of higher ed in Virginia and it's effect on OOS students (This might be a bit too complex for my little blog!)
  • Housing
  • Transportation around Grounds and Charlottesville
  • The "personalities" of the different libraries
  • Class sizes
  • Faculty availability
  • Safety on and around Grounds
