Difficulty deciding on a college
I am now at a T10 LAC. I applied to transfer and have offers from UChicago, Columbia, NYU, Penn, Brown, and Boston College. I'm in a sort of decision freeze and have been unable to decide if I should transfer or not. Reason for leaving is mainly improved department for my major. Reason to stay is the community at my LAC, good people, and times. Do I factor intangible prestige in at all? How do I compare incomparables: community vs academics?11 replies
