Choosing where to go to college is a very big decision. You probably already knew that. However, what I have realized since I made that same decision, is that there are other things to consider besides the immediate facts such as 'what programs are strong at the school'. You are going to be spending a lot of time at school, so consider where you want to live for the next few years of your life. Consider also that a lot of people are living on their own for the first time in college. Distance from friends and family is an important thing to consider. Where you go to school is going to decide the kinds of people you meet in this very formative and important part of your life and growth as a person. So in short, yeah, apply widely to give yourself different options.
