    English possibly with the creative writing emphasis, although that could change. I have thought about anthropology too.

    What about you, yeahmeh?
  • pheezikpheezik Registered User Posts: 27 New Member
    Thinking about a double major in English (with creative writing) and political science
  • yeahmehyeahmeh Registered User Posts: 142 Junior Member
    I may go into molecular biology abd/or premed.

    i m thinking abt english and intl relations. lets see what kenyon has in store to finalize, though.
  • ap1687ap1687 Registered User Posts: 97 Junior Member
    Political Science or International Relations... Unfortunately, I've heard their PolySci department is pretty weak...
    I kind of regret applying to Kenyon now. It was just about the most random school I applied to.
  • laineylainey Registered User Posts: 100 Junior Member
    Actually I heard the opposite about Kenyon's PolySci department, ap1687. When I was at Kenyon our tour guide was raving about PolySci at Kenyon, especially the professors...but then again maybe that was his job?
  • ap1687ap1687 Registered User Posts: 97 Junior Member
    haha, lainey. Well I'm sure the department is decent by itself, but compared to georgetown, tufts or johns hopkins, i think it's probably lacking in diversity of courses.
    But who knows, I could be completely wrong...
  • laineylainey Registered User Posts: 100 Junior Member
    I could be wrong as well. Where do you plan on attending, ap1687? Where else did you apply?
  • ap1687ap1687 Registered User Posts: 97 Junior Member
    Georgetown mainly. I also applied to Brown (unlikely to get accepted, but it's like rolling a dye, so who knows?? lol) and a few other good LACs like Kenyon.
    I dunno, just thinking about Kenyon by itself.... Ohio... not exactly political center of the world or anything. lol.
  • laineylainey Registered User Posts: 100 Junior Member
    Everyone is so skeptical of Ohio, but it isn't that bad honestly.

    Good luck though and let us know what happens and where you end up!

    I heard great things about political science at Kenyon. A polysci professor who my family knows personally says it's very, very good...i think his words were "the best in the country." That sounded a bit extreme to me, especially considering Kenyon's size, but it's certainly positive. More limited course offerings doesn't necessary mean a worse department, especially if the professors are solid.

    While Ohio isn't bubbling over as a political center, you make it seem like it's in antartica! Honestly, it's not that bad. I've heard really great things about their poli sci department as well, even if it is small.
  • chochu444chochu444 Registered User Posts: 323 Member
    Honestly speaking, it really doesnot matter to me- the location. I am sure it is going to be much better than Nepal so I am satisfied with it and I really have heard great things about Kenyon to keep me happy.
  • blipblip Registered User Posts: 828 Member
    Ah well, lets BUMP this one up as well,

    I am planning on majoring in Physics and/or English> I know its quite an odd combination, but I just can't help it! I love both of these subjects equally.
  • brokenchildbrokenchild Registered User Posts: 74 Junior Member
    Psychology and maybe philosophy as well
