Bowdoin v. CMC

<p>Hey people.</p>

<p>I'm having a really difficult time deciding between applying EDII to either Bowdoin or Claremont McKenna. CMC is probably my first choice, but I don't know how good my chances are under EDII. I'm pretty sure I can get into Bowdoin EDII, because I went to the Explore Bowdoin program, but I live in Maine, and I'd really like to get out of the state. Some advice about this would be greatly appreciated.</p>

<p>Tomatopuree16,</p>

<p>Bowdoin and CMC are very different schools, with Bowdoin the quintessential liberal arts college and CMC much more pre-professional, especially for an LAC. If you want a true liberal arts experience in the Claremont consortium, maybe try Pomona or Pitzer. Have you visited the Claremont campuses -- probably the most beautiful I have ever seen (and much warmer and sunnier than Maine). Good Luck!</p>

<p>ED is binding. If you don't know you'd want to go to Bowdoin, save it for RD.</p>
