On my new dilemma

Well, it's the second night of Chanuka, and I am trying to decide whether I want to go to school on the West Coast.

I'm an East Coast kind of gal, but I have a good chance of getting into my second-choice school. The question is, is it my second choice , really? My first choice is obvious: it's in New York City. It has everything I want. The people I most want to be among have gone there. But the school in California will accept me.

I'm applying ot other schools as well, of course. I'm applying to education programs, secondary ed and special ed. If I don't get into my first choice, I can always become a teacher. But the question is, do I want to hold out for the perfect school?
