a question about the school's REPUTATION

<p>hi guys,</p>

<p>can you guys give me an idea about the order of these school's academic reputation and prestige?</p>

<p>NYU CAS</p>

<p>Carnegie Mellon</p>

<p>Boston College</p>

<p>Wesleyan</p>

<p>thanks so much</p>

<p>NYU and BC == way, way overrated. Wesleyan's a good school though.</p>

<p>Wesleyan University
Carnagie Mellon
Boston College
NYU</p>

<p>i cant believe nyu is really so low</p>

<p>I think it also depends on your area of interest. For CS Carnagie Mellon is by far the best on your list. For humanities the ranking would be different.</p>

<p>interested in economics/business</p>

<p>IF economics:</p>

<p>Carnagie Mellon
Wesleyan U
NYU
Boston C</p>

<p>IF business:</p>

<p>NYU
Carnagie Mellon
Boston College
Wesleyan U</p>

<p>IF almost anything else:</p>

<p>Wesleyan U
Carnagie Mellon
Boston C
NYU</p>

<p>According to my prep school friends, they would rank Boston C & NYU as safeties, ranking them lower than Wesleyan U. & Carnagie Mellon U. Anyhow, just my 2 cents. It is more about fit, than rank anyway.</p>
