Carleton College: Worth the distance?
Hi, y'all! Though I've been waitlisted at my top choice (UChicago), I've been accepted to a lot of awesome schools, including Carleton College. I've read so many awesome things about Carleton, and it seems like a good fit for me. However, I'm a northeasterner and have yet to visit campus (will do soon).
Can anyone speak to ethnic and geographic diversity at Carleton? Intellectual passion of Carls? Quality of professors and classes? The town of Northfield? Overall feel of the student body? Strength of language departments? Being in Minnesota (it just feels so diff from my home state)? Name recognition/job prospects? Is it imperative that I become a champion at frisbee?
Also, I'd really appreciate reading other related comments!
