My son got admitted to both Emory and Rice. At this time, he wants to major in Biochemistry with possible pre-med (not 100% sure at this time). We visited both colleges in the last 2 weeks and not able to decide between them. He looked at different factors like, look of campus, classroom setting, dorms, weather, food, student social life and came to a conclusion that any one will fit for him. From financials point of view there is not much difference in family contribution amount, so it is not a deciding factor. We drove around a bit both in Huston and Atlanta during our visit. Again it is a tie. So, it came down to how good Biochemstry dept is at these schools and pre-professional advising/support available at these schools. Provide your opinion from these 2 points of view and any other information that will help us decide.
