I’m an independent, married student of traditional age and I have been admitted to Kalamazoo, Knox, Goucher, College of Wooster, and Allegheny (and couple others) as a philosophy major. I wasn’t admitted to my state’s flagship.
I would like to try the premed path, and I realize it’s very very hard so if I didn’t continue on that path, I would like to go into journalism or something politically related.
All schools are affordable, Kalamazoo and Allegheny are by far the cheapest.
I feel like Allegheny and Wooster are the most isolated, and I like that Kalamazoo, Knox and Goucher are urban or near big cities.
I would also be living off campus!
I’m looking for a healthy environment, not cutthroat, and still a little intellectually challenging which I know these colleges are - but do they differ in that area?
Being politically involved is important to me (violence against women, cyberethics, political campaigns) and I’d prefer a liberal vibe.
I unfortunately can’t afford to visit the campuses.
Do you have any feedback on those schools and how they compare to each other or the areas they’re in ?
