Hi everybody, Like many people at the moment, I'm in the position of having to choose where I'm going to go to graduate school for a PhD. I'm contemplating two different schools. The first school is my undergrad institution, where I would work with a well known and influential advisor that I've really enjoyed working with in the past. The second is a very reputable school, which I'm sure I'd have no trouble finding a good advisor at. Both have offered me roughly equal funding (when taking cost of living into account), so finances are not an issue. I realize that I have to make this decision myself, so my question is really this: what were/are the most important factors that you took into account when choosing your graduate program?
