Currently thinking about EE/ECE for my major, so both colleges are awesome in terms of education. The cost is basically the same too for me.
Olin’s community and prospects for like grad studies/work seem awesome especially since I know I want to get a masters. But it’s such a small school (70 per class) and not too well known. It’s like an hr from home which is a huge plus for me since I did kind of want to stay close to home. But I’m also kinda reluctant on the school in general cuz the diversity seems limited in terms of like clubs, opportunities, and just being able to explore and grow.
I’m super excited about legit everything at this school (education, research, social, location, like u name it), but it’s pretty far from home (10 hrs) which I’m not sure I’m ready to do. Also, the academics seem insanely hard, which is fine by itself, but I’ve heard rumors about people being super competitive with one another and constantly fighting for opportunities, which is a pretty big con.
I know I would probably do well at either school, but I’m so conflicted.
