As a graduate of Marlboro, I now teach at an elite East coast college. Marlboro is extremely difficult. More so than most. Academics are often overwhelming and you will find very little time for other activities. Professors thoroughly scrutinize your work and there is little grade inflation. The college is more interested in graduating well-qualified students than preserving its graduation rate. Thus the "Plan" must be completed. This includes an oral and written exam judged by a professor/professional from outside the college.
I am glad that I went to school there, as the intense environment made me take responsibilities for my own course of study, implement its design, and produce a polished result. For those who graduate, most go to grad school. The majority attend the top graduate and professional schools in the country. The dedication of my classmates who finished the program was nothing short of amazing and their hard work defintely paid off.
