    1 being worst, 5 being best

    1. 5- excellent science program means strong pre-med
    2. 5- 45 mins. from Minneapolis/ St. Paul
    3. 5
    4. 2- long, cold winters. if you like snow, this is a good thing!
    5. 4- nice, old brick buildings, but a few ugly buildings thrown in
    6. ?
    7. very difficult, from what i hear, with minimal grade inflation (but i don't know- haven't been there yet)

    The atmosphere is very liberal and somewhat tree-hugger"ish" but no doubt the students are amazingly nice (as all Minnesotans are of course) and bright as well
