LeftofPisa- New College is definitely on my list! My favorite teacher keeps telling me it would be a great fit for me. The only thing I worry about is size. I don’t want a big school but I believe New College is about 200 kids per grade. I will definitely keep it on my list though! I’ve heard that Mt. Holyoke is awesome. Good for your daughter! If it were more affordable it would be on my list for sure.
tk21769- Definitely applying to New College. You’re right- unfortunately, none of the UC schools are affordable for me. I am thinking about applying to UCSC because they offer a few more scholarships and (not including price) it would be one of my top choices. Even with the scholarships, I don’t think it will be affordable.
woogzmama- New College would definitely be affordable for me. The UC’s, not so much. I looked into the Consortium. My favorites are Pitzer and Pomona and they are the only ones that don’t give merit aid! I may look into Claremont McKenna again. I just heard it is very preppy and not as liberal as the other ones.
