When I visited the 5 Cs (and consulted friends attending the 5Cs), I noticed a widely held view that different kinds of people are naturally a better fit for different claremont colleges. While there may be some truth to this, and each of the 5Cs may have a dominant culture, I believe I would be a good fit for Pomona, CMC and Pitzer too. Hence, Pomona and Pitzer are also on my list. However, I don't necessarily believe the admission officers will feel the same way. They gave me the impression that people who fit into CMC may not fit into other colleges and this might negatively impact my application.
What are the views of people on this forum? Would Pomona/Pitzer be detrimental to include in my application? Should I omit these? Is it ~dishonest~ to not list all of them? Especially if I applied to Pomona ED.... ?
(But submitting my CMC app by Dec1 to be eligible for their merit scholarships)
