Hamilton, Middlebury, Williams - Which is preppiest?

Which, out of Hamilton, Middlebury, and Williams, is the most "preppy?" Not just based on the number of kids who come prom prep schools, but the overall "vibe" of it. And which is least preppy?

    They're all elite LACs in the northeast... Preppy is inevitable at all three. With that being said, Hamilton has a pretty outdoorsy vibe (at least when i visited). However, there are still lots of preppy kids (which was a good thing for me). I think Williams would probably be the most preppy of these 3. I'm not sure about Midd, but from what I've heard it's probably in between Hamilton and Williams.

    I would say Williams. It's also the most prestigious and balanced between Liberals and Conservatives.

    Go Williams :)

    They're all preppy. If you want to avoid preppy, you need to look at the midwestern LACs and some of those in the NW. If you can handle some prep, but in smaller doses, the mid-Atlantic LACs might work, as would the Claremont consortium in CA.
