<p>I was accepted to these 5 schools and I was wondering if any one has anything to tell me comparing and contrasting any or all of them.</p>
<p>I have yet to visit Antioch, but I will soon. I am very intrigued by the fact that I just re-opened after being closed for 4 years and that they are giving free tuition to the first 4 graduating classes (I would be in the second class). I was very excited when I found out that I was one of the 75 out of 3,200 who were accepted. I like their co-op program, their focus on world issues including sustainability in food and energy, and the very small size (less than 200!).
However, I am worried about the fact that it's kind of a gamble since they can not be accredited until they have a graduating class. Which means that my degree would retroactively valid only if they do become accredited. Also, since it's so new it's kind of hard to really tell what the rigor and selectivity of it is, which is not really the most important deciding factor, but it does allow me to get a better grasp on what the atmosphere is like.</p>

<p>I'm a Senior at a boarding college-prep high school with 160 students.
Interested in humanities such as ethics, philosophy, and English, as well as fashion/costume design (which I have a lot of experience in and would like to integrate into my college experience somehow even if I don't actually major in it).
I want a liberal, small school which will have a good balance of academics and arts.
I want a school with geographical, racial, religious, and socio-economical diversity.
Non-academic interest include theater, listening to music, farming and sustainable practices, and swing dancing.</p>
<p>Please give me some input into which school you think may suit me best or any comments you have the schools that are not specific to me.</p>
