I vote Midd because of :smaller class size, more engaged faculty, more opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration-any small LAC is going to be better at this than any large institution,
<p>What makes you believe W&M, Yale, Harvard, etcetera, have less engaged faculty or less opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration than Midd? My sister-in-law is a tenured med school professor at one the top three Ivy's ( she teaches undergrad as well) and, frankly, would be insulted your remarks. On the other hand, if what you say is true, I suppose your son was fortunate he was rejected by the Ivies. For that matter, why did he even apply to Harvard or Princeton?
I can guarantee my professor friends at Midd would take exception to your remarks, as well</p>
Crew Dad may disagree, but many of his points stray from the original question.
<p>Because your assertions anent selectivity and high school achievement between the colleges were false. The OP deserves nothing less than honesty when attempting to make such a difficult decision.</p>
<p>Tell ya what Doc, I'll soon be playing in the Finger Lakes region. I'll treat you to some fine NY wine-if there is such a thing- and we can contiunue this discussion with a bit of a buzz. We might find agreement easier. :)</p>
