Is this list of colleges good for the kind of guy I am?

<p>I really want to go to a Liberal Arts College. I want smaller-sized classes (I'd say 30 kids being the max, but anything 20 kids or less would be wonderfully welcomed), and a more personal connection/time to spend with the professors. Another draw to liberal arts colleges for me was the interesting seminars/classes that you have to take, they sound very interesting and seem like it can broaden your knowledge and views of things!</p>

<p>I also want to go into business once I receive my MBA. So, my goal is LAC and business, and I want to go to a great business school. So, professional-school placement is important.</p>

<p>If my undergrad school does affect where I could be hired from/scouted, then business recruitment means alot.</p>

<p>I want to go into business, but I'm not really tinkering toward a business major. Rather I'm looking at Economics, Sociology, Japanese, some types of business-engineering (industrial/financial), and maybe some more, but as I learn about more types of majors I'm willing to look into more. </p>

<p>A college which has strong alumni connections in order to have more internship/job opportunities would be well appreciated.</p>

<p>I do need quite a bit of financial aid, preferably the school should be need blind/loan free, or at least have loan limits.</p>

<p><a href=""&gt;;/a> My stats if you need to see what I can do, so you could make recommendations.</p>

<p>With this in mind, I've compiled this list. </p>

CMC (Maybe do the 4 + 1 program with the Claremont Graduate School).

Washington and Lee</p>

<p>I've been told to look at Princeton, but I've heard it has large classes and lectures. I'm not really sure what to make of it. I've also been told to look at Brown, but I don't know what to make of that.</p>

<p>Any and all help is appreciated! Thank you all!</p>

<p>Were you trying to say middlebury is a safety?</p>

<p>Dartmouth has a LAC feel to it, but it also has a really great graduate bussiness program, which could be useful.</p>

<p>Judging on your chance board it sounds like you go to Inglemoor High School, haha.</p>

<p>You have more than a decent change at all your choices :)</p>

<p>@Skateboarder. By no means at all. I'm considering Middlebury, not incredibly as interested in it, because they aren't completely loan free, only loan limits.</p>

<p>@Hillary: Can undergrads take classes there?</p>

<p>@Danielle: haha! I do actually! Going to be a senior, fun stuff :p What year are you?</p>

<p>I couldn't say for sure, but I would guess not.</p>

<p>Looking over the course listings, Princeton does seem to have fairly large econ courses, but it's not too bad considering it's such a popular major.</p>

<p>You may also want to check out Duke, which is larger than Princeton but seems to have somewhat smaller econ courses.</p>

<p>Yes, undergrads can take business courses at Dartmouth.</p>

<p></a> | Tuck to offer undergrad courses</p>


<p>There's your answer. Yes, you can. But do read the article. Note that "the new Tuck classes...will count towards the undergraduate degree...although students cannot receive major or minor credit for the courses." (Dartmouth does not have a business major for undergrads). Also note that "priority will be given to seniors."</p>

<p>Nonetheless, an amazing opportunity I'm sure.</p>

<p>If you like Dartmouth, Williams, Middlebury, W&L, you should look at Colgate and Bucknell too.</p>


<p>I'll be a senior as well, but I don't go to Inglemoor. I just knew it was the only IB school in the area with Japanese :)</p>

<p>Look at William & Mary as well. Could be a very good fit.</p>

<p>I'm surprised you're not considering Chicago. It fits your criteria amazingly well.</p>

Economics, Sociology, Japanese


<p>At Chicago, all of these are nationally top 5 departments.</p>

<p>Also look at Harvard, Bates, Haverford, Connecticut College. </p>

<p>Note: liberal arts schools, do not offer business classes and most do give credit for any business courses taken at other places (ie when you study abroad or over the summer) You do not need to take any business courses to get your MBA, but if you are considering a BBA then you will need to go to a larger University like UPenn, Michigan, UVA, Notre Dame, NYU, etc.</p>
