Choosing a place based on where you can ride is not a bad idea, as long as the school has a good program that you are interested in. I chose the University of Puget Sound, because it has an amazing science program and it 1:45 from Crystal and 2ish to Stephens Pass. And for a long weekend, Baker or Hood are only 3 to 4 hours away. You have a great GPA, so getting scholarships is totally possible. Keep that in mind. I had deans list and one for science, so for a few years I had 10 grand off my $40,000/year education. Then I realized how much better the ganja was on the west coast and lost my Dean's list scholarship... but hey, I was having a GREAT time!
