edited April 2006 in Dartmouth College
i'm in the lucky position of having to choose between two small yet excellent schools, one being dartmouth and the other being swarthmore... i want to earn a bachelor's degree in engineering (none specifically) but also want to gain some experience in international relations. which school would be good for me to fit both aspects, dartmouth or swarthmore and why?

    I see you are from Philly, if you want to stay close to home, go to swarthmore, if you need to grow up and escape from ur parents, dartmouth

    I'd choose Dartmouth for no other reason than that Swarthmore is practically in your back yard... college, in my opinion, is a time to experience new things and become independent, and that's much harder when you're very close to home.
