small liberal arts college? or not?

<p>I am a senior and I am currently taking AP physics, AP statistics, AP calculous AB, economics, english, and spanish. Because I found learning myself just for the sake of learning, (it is fun for me) and because I don't know what I will major, I had decided to go to a small liberal arts college. However, as I was looking at the colleges, I was under an impression that most liberal arts colleges are more of literature, humanities, social studies and the likes, as opposed to math and sciences. I am better at math and science than at english, foreign language and social studies, but I enjoy them equally and I was actually really looking forward to taking psychology and philasophy as a freshman in college. I doubt I will be exceptionally good at them and major them but it really sounds fun to me.</p>

<p>Please list some schools with basic/good liberal art, and strong in majors of business, economics or majors that would require strong skills of math and science (for that's all I can do now).</p>

<p>My SAT verbal is 590 and math is 800
SAtII chemistry 740
expecting to get 700-800 on IIC and 650-700 on writing SATII
Expecting to get 650-700 on SAT Verbal and 750-800 on Math as I will take them again in December.</p>

gpa 10th: 2.5
gpa 11th: 3.5
gpa 12th: likely to get 4.1</p>

<p>expecting good rec.
little extracurricular activities
decent amount of volunteer work</p>

<p>It is a very common misconception that LACs are weak in math and science - it's just not true. Many LACs have strong math/science programs; they send quite a few students to medical school. And there are LACs with good business programs. Check out "Colleges That Change Lives" by Loren Pope - it describes several LACs and their programs which would fit with your profile. There is also a website - <a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>For a LAC with engineering, I seem to recall Swarthmore having a good program.</p>

<p>There are many LAC's with strong science programs. Liberal Arts colleges are "at the head of the class in producing science PhD's" (mention of Oberlin, Reed, Swarthmore, Williams, Wellesley.)
<a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p>

<p>From the Claremont Colleges website "Selective liberal arts colleges, with their emphasis on critical thinking and a deep commitment to high quality undergraduate education, produce a disproportionately large share of the distinguished scientists in the nation"</p>

<p>I think Harvey Mudd, which is a Claremont College is a LAC, but has a highly ranked engineering program. It also offers a biology major:

<p>I know someone who went to Colby college and was able to do science research and got into medical school, is now a neonatologist.</p>

<p>Some LAC;s have spent huge amounts of money on Science facilities in the last decade. You should be able to find dozens using a reputable college guide book. I think the University of Puget Sound is one.</p>

<p>I don't think too many LAC's have business departments. Muhlenberg is one I've heard of. All of them, of course, do have econ depts.</p>
