I could not figure out how to edit a previous topic title - my daughter has made the cut to the final two schools. So starting a new thread. Anyone have experience with either C of C (daughter in Honors and a named Intl. Scholar - a cohort of 10 or so)…or U of South Carolina Honors.
Cost is out of the equation (U of SC is $6K less but we are good there).
Daughter wants school spirit - not necessarily football but school spirit. So she’s concerned about C of C there.
Concerned a bit about Jewish life at U of SC…but like all kids, loves that U of SC (to her) has higher pedigree as they are the #1 Honors College (while there’s not a true ranking, they have this on banners all over campus).
Major - Intl Studies and if at Charleston, a 2nd (either Public Health or Urban Studies) as C of C requires it. I imagine she could do similar at U of SC.
I think she’d choose Charleston but their avg ACTs are 3 points or so lower than U of SC and so that concerns her. Yet, I’ve read nothing but great things about Charleston and I do think the smaller program will benefit her. But she’s concerned, based on rank and student academic profile, it’s not as good a school.
Any experiences you’ve had with either??? Thanks
