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
James Madison University (Harrisonburg, Virginia)
+ Really nice campus
+ Can go hiking/biking/camping easily (some of my fav activities)
+ 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.
