Lake Forest is a top notch school. Its not as well known as others, and thats a bit embarassing, but it really is great. It deserves a much better reputation than it receives.
I've visited, and done an over night stay, sat in on a class, and know the admissions dept fairly well now. Its a really great place, gorgeous location, and it doesnt really feel THAT tiny. Their FA is amazing, and their classes are a managable size so you dont become lost in the crowd, the cafeteria is so so so SO good, and they're generally pretty accepting. If you dont really take the initiative to integrate yourself, it won't happen, but if you do, its a really good time. The academics seem to be up to snuff, and I'm debating double majoring. The dorms, some are good, some are bad, try to get into Cleavland Young or blackstone, cause others dont have AC and people die using window fans when it warms up. I'm in contact with kids who currently go to LF, and kids who are possibly thinking about it, and everyone is great...
I don't personally know if I will be attending, as my first choice is revising my financial aid package, but if that doesnt work out, i'll happily be a black bear.
