There are many LAC much smaller than Dickinson College. It's not really something someone can tell you about, you just have to use your best judgment. If you think that you will get bored seeing the same people day in and day out Dickinson may not be right for you. Same thing about a small town. If you are already bored after a day, it's probably not a good fit. That said, even a much larger college you'll see the same people that are in your dorm, the same people in your major and may do the majority of your classes in two buildings. So, sometimes the differences can be overstated.
