<p>Okay so my dad went to Lawrence and he LOVED it, and now he has a masters, etc, unimportant.
Anyway, he said I should pick Lawrence as a "safe school" just in case something goes wrong and I don't have any other colleges. But the more and more I look at it, it may be becoming my first choice.
His mother (my grandmother) and him are both huge advocates of the school. But what my dad said was "Lawrence is an amazing school-- but after you finish your 4 years, and want to apply for graduate school in some prestigious college, they won't even know who lawrence is."</p>
<p>Then, my grandmother said "If you go to Lawrence, you will get a phenomenal education, and on top of that every graduate school in the country will recognize you." </p>
<p>So who is right?</p>
