High Schools! I can't decide!

Ok so today was Highschool recruitment day....YIKES. So many schools, a lot of free stuff (bribers...:P), and a lot of good things said about the schools.

The schools are:

Regis Jesuit
Machebeuf
Arrupe
JK Mullen (#1 for highschool football in the country BTW)

and I can't decide!! For distance Machebeuf and Regis are the two main ones and my first choice is Regis, but Machebeuf is easier to get into and cheaper. But Arrupe was just so chill and didn't try to bribe us like the others.

I just can't decide.

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

Jesuit schools have a reputation for being fine educational institutions and can boast many well known alumni who've made names for themselves in both the private and public sectors. Be aware that they also have a reputation for being highly disciplined, no nonsense schools that don't tolerate less than highly disciplined students either. That's not to say that the other schools aren't equally fine- I don't know about any of them specifically...

Apparently, Arrupe is also a Jesuit institution, no?

Jeez, I never had a choice for high schools. College is the first thing I got a chance to choose lol :P Pick something that meets the goals you want :) For the football one, unless you're a die hard fan or a good player, it probably doesn't matter whether the team is good or not :P

What you might want to do is make a list of the highschools and list pros and cons of each one. Maybe that will help you decide.
I didn't get to choose where I wanted to go, either. lol What I got was what I got! lol

Yeah I'm aware of how they are. But I've been to Regis a lot and have got to know how things are...I like it :)

Arrupe is Jesuit but most kids in my class, including myself, were denied...it's a money issue...unless you have super low income you can't go there, but they were the coolest who recruited at my school.
