Congrats, Vandy is the slightly better school but 'the institution that shall not be named' is in a better city unless you are really into country. Our middle child had that decision 30 years ago and chose Vandy. She never regretted it but never enjoyed the outside of school opportunities that her same aged cousin had at you know where.
As a former Boston resident and frequent Nashville visitor, I’d agree—-30 years ago. Today, Nashville is a much more vibrant city than it was then and a heck of a lot more friendly. I’d choose Nashville for the happy people, growth, low taxes and entrepreneurial spirit. The culture is far more appealing. Even the music scene has expanded to far more than country. Boston is a bit uptight.
