I thought I would pose this question: how are the Seven Sister College seen and ranked by the members of CollegeConfidential.com.
The way I understand the reputations of the colleges: Bryn Mawr is the strongest college of "Sister Colleges" academically. Mt. Holyoke is slightly behind Bryn Mawr, but has better science programs. Wellesley and Barnard would be in the middle of the pack, with Smith and Vassar at the bottom. However, Smith and Vassar are considered to be very strong in the humanities and social sciences, but somewhat weak in the natural sciences. Or least this is what I have gathered.
Anyone who anything to add or contribute, please feel free.
BTW, the seventh Sister was Radcliffe College, which has been fully integrated into Harvard University.
BTW II, yes, I know ... Vassar accepts male students.
