Social scene at NESCAC schools
Hello - Can anyone weigh in on the campus vibe at the various NESCAC schools? My daughter thinks she wants a small LAC in New England, but she eschews sports, doesn't drink, isn't preppy. She is a bright girl, interested in German as a possible major, is artsy (plays three instruments, tap dances, performs in musicals, paints watercolor), and has the same good credentials that literally thousands of others have (top 10%, SAT and subject tests ranging from 700 - 760, several clubs and leadership positions, summer job). I think she needs to look at some large(r) schools, but she insists she doesn't want "big." She also wants a small, cute town alongside her dream college, so cities are out. I feel some of the women's colleges would be a great fit for her, but she won't even look. She is a senior, just now starting classes, and I don't think she's close to knowing truly where she wants to apply or what is a good fit. Thank you for your help!12 replies
