Wake Forest or Carolina??
I thought that I was dead-set on Carolina. I would be a 7th generation legacy student and come from a big Carolina family. I love the atmosphere at the school and Chapel Hill. It was my very first choice until I got my financial aid package from Wake Forest. Wake Forest has been my second choice due to their smaller class sizes and appreciation for the IB program which I am a part of. I am a communication major so their programs are both good for that. They are similarly ranked in terms of academic rigor and sports and both check a lot of my boxes. I was hoping that current students or alumni of either school would be able to provide me with some insight? Thank you!0 replies
