Hello. I'm interested in a major in advertising, which I recently realized is offered hardly anywhere! A lot of larger universities offer communication majors with special advertising programs, which I'm open too. At the same time, I like the vibe of liberal arts colleges- the zest for learning, the personal attention received, etc. still, I feel that many universities also have positives- more people to meet, more major/class options, often better locations ( I prefer to be in or near a city- many of the LACs have a slightly isolated feel. ) also, my ideal size is 5-15k undergrad. It seems hard to find a middle ground between huge unis and LACs! I want to attend a prestigious school. I want to major in advertising/ comm but if not possible, I'm considering a double major in marketing and studio art/ graphic design- I want to be a creative director and work in the creative side of advertising. Also, here are my stats: 2050 sat (last year) 33 ACT (last month) GPA 3.88 UW. I want to go to a school with endless opportunities to meet people, internships, interaction in city/ town, not a huge party school, creative-type people, friendly open community. So far I'm looking at emerson, Northeastern, Syracuse, Richmond. Any feedback on these schools , or suggestions? Anything is appreciated. And sorry for the length and bad punctuation, I've written this from my phone.
