<p>Hi guys,</p>

<p>can you guys help me answer some questions about this college..</p>

<li><p>How good is middlebury in econs? I seem to have the impression that their econs department is not that great as their website mainly talks about how strong their language and writing departments are. And i'm considering econs as my major</p></li>
<li><p>Within the aid package from middlebury, is loan a large portion of it? I heard from one of my friends that Middlebury mainly gives loan gather than grants. Is that true? i really don't wanna end up with a huge loan after i graduate as I'm thinking of applying ED there and the thing is binding:) an international student (if that makes any difference)</p></li>

<p>thx for your help and i'm looking forward to all your answers:D</p>

<p>I've heard tell and seen it advertised that Middlebury has a really great econs department. In fact, some refer to it as one of Middlebury's strongest departments. I know a lot of econ majors, if that tells you anything.</p>

<p>As for the aid package, I am really happy with what I got this year. It's really on a case by case basis, but I got about @27,000 in grants and less than $8,000 in loans. However, last year I definitely got more loans than grants. I think I got such a huge grant this year because I have a brother at Tulane and 4 siblings in private school. It really all depends on what your financial situation for that year is, I suppose...</p>

<p>haha, thx alot..Btw, does Middlebury place alot of emphasis on academic result? As in the GPA and stuffs..How is it ranked compared to extra curricular and standardized test and recommendation?</p>
