So most of us parents here have spent alot of time researching schools and helping our kids find the "right" fit. So based on what you've learned, if you were going to school now, where would you go, what would you major in?
In my case, I spent Freshman year at Marquette (300 mile from home) and transfered to my Flagship University in the Midwest to finish. I considered BC and Notre Dame in Highschool.
My top choices today would be St. Lawrence or Bowdin. I like the idea of a LAC. We visited St. Lawrence with D and I really felt the campus was beautiful and that they have alot of opportunities. At the time, they had the only Caribou Coffee (founder went there) on the East Coast. Both D & I spend bucks there despite H's dismay. Definately a school on the East Coast: ther is so much to see.
As for a major, I'm undecided- education or engineering (current field). I've often wished I was a teacher.
