<p>Anyone have experience with Mount Allison? How does it compare to U.S. LACs? How selective is it? How is the town and surrounding area? Thanks!</p>
<p>One more try....</p>
<p>You would be more likely to get responses if you posted this under the "Canada" thread on CC.</p>
<p>I tried that. But thanks.</p>
<p>I'm a student in Canada.
I had never even heard of Mount Allison until a few months ago.</p>
<p>Not sure if that helps at all?
I would say, however, based on very limited knowledge of it, that it isn't a great school (based on name recognition).</p>
<p>Thanks. On the positive side, I've read that Mount Allison has been rated by a magazine in Canada as the number one university that focuses on undergraduate education - which I take to mean schools similar to small liberal arts colleges in the U.S. In the U.S., there are many great LACs that really don't have much name recognition. Maybe something similar is going on in Canada - or maybe not. Anyway, thanks again.</p>
