Real scoop on Middlebury

<p>Any words from an existing student? What is it like there? Are there public school/middle class kids? Does ED give you an edge?</p>

<p>Middlebury is an outstanding school with perhaps the most beautiful campus in the country. What sets Midd apart from it's peers? A strong international focus/presence, strong programs in literature, writing, languages, environmental studies, international relations, and science. Top-notch facilities (many of which were completed in the past 5 years). A smart, outgoing, outdoorsy student body that works hard and plays hard. </p>

<p>More than half the students at Middlebury went to public schools, and approximately 40% receive financial aid (with the average award being $29,262/year). </p>

<p>ED gives a slight edge, but not as much of a boost as at peer schools. </p>
