<p>Sure, she was the best first lady of one of the best presidents ever, but what can you tell me about her college?</p>

<p>It's pretty, lots and lots of glass.</p>

<p>I really like ERC's living arrangements. It's arguably the most beautiful area of campus, has easier access to the ocean, and has one of the best dining halls on campus. You're next to International House so be prepared to hear a lot of foreign-language speaking people all the time. One could complain that it is further away from the rest of campus, but in another sense, it's nice because it's a good place to go back to at the end of a long day. Our common lounges are amongst the biggest of any other college. I also think the hottest people are in ERC, but maybe I'm just comparing them to the people in my chem class.</p>

<p>As for the GE's, I'll admit they aren't the most pleasing if you don't like humanities-related subjects. However, if your AP's got you out of your science, math, foreign language, and art requirements (as was with me) then the requirements aren't bad at all because then all you have left are MMW and regional specialty. Maybe you should ask somebody else's opinions on the GE's since I'm not the best person to talk to, considering how I got past most of them.</p>

<p>On top of all this, one extra good point about ERC are the study abroad options. They recently allowed students to take some MMW courses in other countries, and the application process was ridiculously easy; I spent at most two hours on my app and got accepted into an MMW in Paris program. In addition, it seems as if every student in ERC has studied abroad, so you can always get their input. There's even a scholarship for ERC students only studying abroad. If you're into that kind of stuff then I'd check it out.</p>

<p>Negative things about ERC? The counselors suck. No questions asked. They are irritable, have been known to misguide people, and refused to discuss my four year plan with me last quarter. Luckily there's the school's career counselor so I go to her for all my questions.</p>

<p>what do you think about the triples arrangements at erc? me and two friends are thinking about doing this because we all got in there. Are there any really, really bad things attached to doing this?</p>

<p>wow...ERC sound great! Can't wait to see it.</p>

<p>hi..my D was just accepted to ERC..we're from OOS and she's a theatre major..weak in math..but excellent writer (800 Writing SAT 1) Do you think ERC will be an OK fit? thanks for any information or help you can give..we hope to visit in April..thanks, again...</p>

<p>Yeah, it sounds fine. The math requirement should not be a huge issue, considering how ERC allows people to take classes like philosophy/logic to fulfill the math requirement. If she doesn't have any qualms about writing argumentative/research papers then being in ERC shouldn't be an issue.</p>

<p>wow, this sounds perfect for me!</p>

<p>I finished off my app late at night and ranked the colleges using only the UCSD as a guideline. I should have talked to people, but I guess I made the best choice after all :)</p>
