I could use some insight in deciding between some schools.

I will be an Accounting Major:
Bentley College (Waltham, Mass.)
+ Boston Area
+ Accepted into Honors Program
+ Could drive home for weekends IF I had too
+ Half-tuiton merit scholarship
- Cold!

James Madison University (Harrisonburg, Virginia)
+ Really nice campus
+ Can go hiking/biking/camping easily (some of my fav activities)
+ Warm!
+ 6ish hour drive- do-able in an emergency for weekend.

Wake Forest (Winston-Salem, NC)
+ Excellent reputation (especially for accounting)
+ Amazing Campus
- "Work forest" ??
- Tough grading scale; I hear anyway- impossible to get A's, very hard for
B's? I have a scholarship for any school, but need a 3.25gpa to keep
- Not able to drive home for weekend
- I hear its very conservative / religious / republican. I can deal with it all, but I'm none of the above. (I'm not far left either - right down the middle, agnostic...)

I'm most worried about getting bad grades at Wake. They make it sound so scary.

    In my opinion, you should attend Wake Forest, its an awesome school! Yes, it is tough to get good grades but just work hard and it will be even more of a happy event when you graduate.

    WARNING: very biased,two of my cousins go there
