i seriously have no idea where i want to go. can some people tell me the pros and cons of gtown as compared to a small but well ranked (10) LAC like haverford? i'm thinking about majoring in english and filling up my premed requirements.
from what i've come to gather, the one main thing that is different about them is the size (obviously). haverford seems to have a huge focus on community; is everyone kind of like on their own in gtown, lost in d.c. and all? haverford has penn and swarthmore, but gtown has d.c. and opportunities, and of course, a huge research university -- and the name. it's not an h-bomb, but it's definitely like a g-missle, and not many people have ever heard of haverford (i'm talking about the common man).
the social scene means just as much to me as the academic. at haverford, i have this feeling i'll get to know people a lot better since there will be so few -- it'll be like high school all over again in a way. at georgetown, there'd be a lot more people to get to know, etc.
whatever and thanks in advance. tell me your mood. hit me with some thoughts.
