School with best cameradie amongst students?

<p>I am wondering which school, in your opinion, has the best cameraderie amongst students?</p>

<p>It is important to note that cameraderie does not mean school spirit.</p>

<p>You should join ROTC if you want cameraderie (I'm serious), Go Army, Go Navy, Go Airforce...</p>

<p>From what I have heard, Harvey Mudd students for sure.</p>

<p>What makes you say that about Harvery Mudd?</p>

<p>And the ROTC suggestion is very interesting...</p>

<p>A ridiculous workload + no grade inflation + small school= kids bonded together from struggling together and working together a lot on assignments.</p>

<p>Or, become a cadet like me and go through some pretty exhausting and grueling hours of training at 6:00am in the morning every other day and live in the forest for a weekend with pretty cheap camping gear, doing land navigation, and other fun stuff we do in the "army" ROTC. It builds character in yourself, you learn to fight and die for your country, and for your fellow men and soldiers. (not so much that glorified than it is the truth) Its actually pretty fun, you should try it...:)</p>

<p>JHU's ROTC program is among the top 3 in the country.... check it out.</p>

<p>I honestly don't know if I could get into JHU, I am maybe top 25-30% of my class and will probably have an ACT score of 29 or 30.</p>

<p>Where would I find the stats for best ROTC programs in the country?</p>

<p>Try OHIO state or Texas A&M...thats based off what I've heard, Ohio state has the largest rotc student enrollment out of all the schools in the nation, with each of the three services branches represented on campus. Texas A&M, monster house of a program, they employ chinook helicopters oncampus or through a near by airforce/army base for their basic training exercises.</p>

<p>This is partly based what I've read on articles and on youtube videos btw. There is no official list of best ROTC programs in the nation, they stopped doing them after a while, there are 256 programs on the blocks, just gotta go by what ppl say and hearsay. lol.</p>

<p>ROTC</a> Programs: Texas A&M University Corps of Cadets</p>

<p>I'm from MA as well, about 30 miles west of Boston in one of the rich suburbs.</p>

<p>And Ohio State and Texas A&M would be safeties.</p>

<p>Also, which service would allow me to major in Business, Economics, Premed, or Biology to prepare for a career in pharmaceuticals?</p>

<p>Newton, lol. Or... I don't know any other rich suburbs outside of Boston. Try Tufts, they have a program with the MIT Paul Revere Battalion that they host on the MIT campus.</p>

<p>Well, you can apply for a ROTC scholarship, after you get comissioned as a 2nd Lt. officer, you can get an educational delay to go to medical school (get an MD, then serve your obligation yrs as a doctor in the army) or law school (get a JD and join the JAG) or go to chaplain school (and become a chaplain) or go to pharmacy school (they have a program where they can repay and lower down your school loans for pharmacy school) and become a pharmacy officier.</p>

<p>I believe all branches are in demand of pharmacy officers. </p>

Several students also received an educational delay to attend medical or pharmacy schools before their years of service.</p>

<p>"The cadet who received a pharmacy school delay [Sumesh Sagar of University of Maryland Baltimore County] is a biology major who had over 600 hours experience in pharmacy work," said Roller.ROTC</a> graduates notified of branch duty assignments - Features


<p>ROTC/service doesn't have any major requirements for your undergrad yrs. You can major in anything.</p>

A ridiculous workload + no grade inflation + small school= kids bonded together from struggling together and working together a lot on assignments.


<p>I agree. Small schools with tough workloads probably have students with the best camaraderie.</p>

<p>^ What does the word "camaraderie" mean to you?</p>

<p>Dictionary: camaraderie (k</p>

<p>I can't speak for all schools, but for mine, most people were collaborative. With a tough workload, you're at a disadvantage when you work alone as opposed to in a group. It's only logical.</p>

<p>I agree size isn't correlated with collaboration, but I think it is correlated with cohesiveness. It's much easier to make friends and know everybody in a school with 1,000 students as opposed to 20,000 students. You're taking classes with the same people year after year, so relationships are more developed. In a large school, there isn't that continuity.</p>

<p>Thanks for the responses. How hard is it to get an educational delay (medical school)?</p>
