I am an admitted student, and Colorado College is very high on my list. Top 2. However, I am not sold on the block plan. In fact, it is probably the only thing stopping me from committing. I have two concerns:
1. How do grad schools view it? Might they view it as lacking academic rigor?
2. It seems that a student at Colorado College would have a harder time double-majoring or adding a minor. For example, I am very interested in the International Political Economy major. It is 16 blocks. Since one block is 4 hours, that major comes out to be 64 hours. At most colleges, majors are around 30 hours. I'm not sure what I want to do, so I had always planned on adding many different majors or minors.
Anyway, I would love another perspective from CC parents or students. It seems like an excellent school, and the Block Plan is really the only thing holding me back.
