ND, Duke, Fordham, Catholic U. - WL @ Boston College

<p>I'm in at Notre Dame, Fordham, Duke, and Catholic University of America. Waitlisted at Boston College (seriously - they're really something) Which should I choose?</p>

<p>ND or Duke. Fordham and Catholic U are on different levels. Personally I'd choose ND, that's just me.</p>

<p>I'm waiting from ND right now, just also got waitlisted at BC. (Yeah, I'm just as ****ed and baffled as you are)</p>

<p>Notre Dame is my #1 choice right now. Duke is 2nd. Boston College needs to clean house in their admissions office. It's like a bad junior achievement project.</p>

<p>Couldn't have said it better myself. From experience (my sis attends ND and thus I am quite familiar with the university, campus, ect), I can safely say you won't be disappointed at ND. What do you want to study?</p>

<p>How important is Catholicism to you? That will basically give you your answer.</p>

<p>Catholicism is important to me. Yeah...i'm thinking about either pre-med, physics, french language, or international relations. i kno...i need to narrow it down. any suggestions?</p>

<p>I like the phys and international relations :) . </p>

<p>Very diverse group of fields of study you have there. You could be a French-speaking physicist/doctor employed by the State department haha.</p>

<p>thanks! :D i was thinking about that! i really like speaking french and science comes easy for me. hbu? what r u thinking about studying?</p>

<p>Notre Dame and Fordham are both excellent choices. Fordham is unique because of its location in NYC , ideal for international relations. Fordham has excellent internship possibilities. Fordham also had a larger number of Fulbright Scholars than ND in the past few years , so keep that in mind .</p>

<p>How did you find out about Duke already? And that's strange about BC. I wonder what they were doing over there this year...</p>

<p>What are you looking for in a school?</p>

<p>Duke's French department is one of the best, has great support for IR students (DIRA</a> - Duke International Relations Association), and is the pretty much the better choice hands down for pre-medical students (<a href="http://wsjclassroom.com/pdfs/wsj_college_092503.pdf%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://wsjclassroom.com/pdfs/wsj_college_092503.pdf&lt;/a&gt;).&lt;/p>

<p>Duke = #6
ND = #35


<p>Duke has better networking, more prestige, & more academic breadth/strength. </p>

<p>Keep in mind that the Duke chapel is non-denominational and serves Catholic students as well. While Duke not religiously affiliated, you can still keep religion as a big part of your life by going to mass, joining interest groups, etc. Many of my friends do.</p>
