can anyone help please? kenyon vs. pomona...
i'm trying to pick an early decision school to apply to by the november 1 deadline. Obviously, i'm running out of time! Problem is ,I'm pretty indecisive and I'm having a really hard time eliminating schools. here are my top choices of schools right now ...
Pomona: Basically a perfect college. amazing campus, top notch academics, very smart but fun students (i did an overnight there so i got to meet a lot of people). weather is a plus (I hate winter). No greek life, which i see as fine. Has the benefits of a small school while at the same time having the resources of the other Claremont colleges as well.
Kenyon: Cute campus, great new art buildings being constructed. Town is pretty small, though, and the weather does get cold there. Some greek life, but that's ok too. Had a great interview, but I didnt get to do an overnight and see what life is like. Though i'm able to name a few downsides, it's the only school i've ever visited where i got the gut feeling of "wow. i could really see myself here". But maybe that's just because I was having a good day or something, not linked to the school?
Kenyon/pomona are my top choices, but i also still can't completely rule out Occidental (Good, small, fun LAC) and Pitzer (artsy, environmental, liberal)
I know I've written a lot but I'm really having trouble here. This is my 2nd time going through the college application process so i really don't want to mess it up.
