I have narrowed down my application list to two "reach" schools (Claremont McKenna and Williams,) two "match" schools (Pitzer and Occidental,) and now I need two safety schools. Does anyone have any ideas? I like small campuses, LAC's in general, strong departments in economics, nice weather (California/Florida are nice,) D3 Athletics, and an overall welcoming student body.
I have not yet visited Occidental or Williams, do you think I won't like these schools? I am a libertarian and have hear Oxy is homogeneously liberal and somewhat heteronormative. Is this an accurate assumption? I am having a lot of trouble with this... Claremont and Williams seem to be schools that are politically moderate, while Pitzer and Occidental seem to be full of flaming liberals. This list just doesn't add up. Any suggestions?
