Carleton vs Smith
Hi, I previously made a thread on Smith vs Hamilton and thank you for all the responses. But, now I just got the news that I've been accepted to Carleton. Does anyone have any thoughts on Carleton vs Smith. For bkgd, I'm an econ major who is interested in going to grad school. I'm concerned about Carleton's trimester system bc I've never had experience with that. How's the academic rigor at Carleton? Based an Induck it seems like a lot of hard work.10 replies
