help me find some safeties?

<p>Colleges I really want to go to:

<p>I'm applying to a few others, but those are the ones I really like. So if you could suggest some less selective schools that are similar, it would be highly appreciated!</p>

<p>characteristics I would like in a school: liberal arts (with that comes small size, although that's not a factor), proximity to a major city, somewhat diverse (I don't really put weight on this factory because it's usually to difficult to fit with the others)</p>

<p>oops, typo sorry
*factors, not factory</p>

<p>I think Occidental College could be a safety.</p>

<p>Bard, Wheaton, Emerson, Drew, Bryn Mawr, and on the west coast Occidental.</p>

<p>conn college, skidmore, goucher</p>

<p>thanks these are very helpful! of the ones listed thus far, I'm drawn to connecticut college, skidmore (already on my list), and drew</p>

<p>I live on the east coast, so I'm not looking at west coast schools, mostly because of the price of plane tickets.</p>

<p>anymore college suggestions would be really helpful!</p>

<p>The College Of New Jersey and UNC-Asheville</p>

<p>"less selective schools that are similar":</p>

<p>How about the Universidad de Havana?</p>

<p>Clark U., Worcester, MA.</p>

<p>Trinity and Holy Cross</p>

<p>Macalester College in St. Paul/Minneapolis, Minnesota.</p>

<p>New College in Florida.</p>

<p>Your list was very much like mine (Wes was my top choice), and my safties were Skidmore and Occidental (though I understand why one wouldn't want to have to pay the plane ticket price for Oxy).</p>

<p>I second Goucher, esp. if you're on the lookoiut for a "safer" saftey than Skidmore (depends on your stats whether or not you'd need one). Very pretty campus.</p>

<p>Maybe Dickenson.</p>

<p>Dickinson & Goucher are great suggestions.</p>

<p>Dude, macalaster is not a safety, it may be at the most a high match</p>

<p>thanks for all the suggestions!
I've decided upon skidmore, clark, and loyola chicago for my safeties.</p>

<p>I like goucher a lot. but it's in baltimore and I have A LOT of family in baltimore. it's not that I don't like my family; I just dont want to be coddled for 4+ years.</p>

<p>but again, thank you for the suggestions!</p>
