Hey! I’m just starting my college search. Where can i see the best undergrad schools for my major?
US News (https://www.usnews.com/education/best-global-universities/neuroscience-behavior) seems to be based only off of grad programs, not undergrad.
Niche (2021 Best Colleges with Neuroscience and Neurobiology Degrees - Niche) shows the best colleges that have a neuroscience major…not necessarily the colleges with the strongest neuroscience department.
like how do i know which colleges have the best undergrad programs for my major? is there a list? how come I cant find it.
My intended major(s) are neuroscience/biopsych/psych-related. and possibly a minor/major in early childhood education. (related note–if i intend to double major do i just look at 2 diff sites and choose the colleges that have high rankings for both the majors?)
- other notes: UW GPA 3.95, SAT 1520.
- my mom: If I am to apply to LACs, I should only apply to California LACs
- If I apply to schools out-of-state, they should only be private, because she said the UCs are good public schools and why spend more money on out-of-state publics.
- I should stick to the top 30 national universities (after considering major ranking) when applying out-of-state, because she and I know I will likely change/add majors, and she says I might as well go to a school that has excellent majors across the board.
Thanks so much!!
