Vassar vs Emory vs Tufts

I have recently gotten into three amazing schools! I am not yet sure what I want to major in, but I am leaning towards business, econ, and political science. I am wondering if I can hear some suggestions on which one has the best academic experience, opportunities, reputation, and social life!

    Don't know that anyone can tell you which school is "best" in all the areas you list. Reputation, certainly, is roughly equal for all three. The broad-brush labels are Vassar: progressive; Emory: pre-professional; and Tufts... actually, cannot peg Tufts in a word, which, IMO, is its appeal. Maybe "Goldilocks" is a good analogy: not too small, not too big; not too quirky, not too preppy; not too artsy, not too jocky; not too cutthroat, not too unchallenging. Internship opportunities are abundant; access to thriving downtowns in Davis and Harvard Squares plus Boston is easy; and clubs/ groups of all stripes are available and welcoming. And Tufts IR program is one of best in country.
