DS and I just returned from a whirlwind tour this weekend at Rice, Wash U, Northwestern and Michigan and he's now NW, Duke and Rice are his top three choices for ED.
He was able to have an unofficial tour/conversation with former classmates at all but Duke and has a list of pros and cons in his head (which I'm trying to get him to write down).
I was hoping some of you have kids at these schools and could tell me about their experiences. DS isn't artsy, not super jock-y (he's a runner and plays ultimate frisbee), not "quirky" (whatever that means)... thinks the idea of greek life is unappealing due to the stereotypes but I could see him joining a frat if it had the right fit.
DS has many interests and is considering econ, physics, math, classics, and engineering as possible majors. Consulting, law or business school could be future plans for him.
We're from the Boston area where most of his classmates stay in New England/Mid-Atlantic so we only know a couple kids at each of these schools so don't have a full picture of the culture there.
Thanks for any advice on this big decision that needs to be made very soon!
