Early College for Current Junior

RoundGeniusRoundGenius Registered User Posts: 410 Member
Hello Everyone,

I am a current junior tired of his unchallenging classes and curious about the concept of early college. From the little research I have done, the Simon's Rock branch of Bard seems like a good match for what I am looking for. Very small class sizes, a liberal arts college, it's on a coast (I want to go to college on either the east or west coast). However, there are a few questions I have about it. First off, I know you can either get an AA from there in Liberal Arts, or get an actual Bachelor's degree in one of their 40 majors. For someone who is interested in political science and writing, is their political studies program any good? I am planning on at least getting a Master's and would like to do so at an elite institution. Will Simon's Rock adequately prepare me? Is it as high a quality program as it is made out to be? Also, what is the financial aid like? Merit scholarships? You will be able to see info about me in my other threads. Thanks.
