<p>"It's extremely boring there, so you don't have much to do.
Also, it is not a competitive college.
I would suggest your friend to avoid it."</p>
<p>Not at all the impression I got from my daughter's interview and tour with 'Rich'. </p>
<p>While it is not of a size comparable to UW-Madison, there are many who are seeking an undergrad education experience at a 'college' -- rather than a 'university' with enough students to comprise a small city unto itself. I did my undergrad at a university with more than 14,000. I have done my best to make sure my D's are aware of the difference in environment and educational opportunities.</p>
<p>Albright would appear to be one of many US N&R 3rd tier-like small LAC's in the mid-Atlantic. It is located in a small city, Reading, and Philly seems easily accessible. I certainly would not consider it isolated. </p>
<p>If your friend cannot visit, I would suggest visiting the website and contacting one of the 'tour guides' directly. </p>
<p>As for competitiveness, it depends -- in relation to what? As always, you get out of your educational experience what you put in. Each individual may perform better and attain more in differing circumstances. If you're not getting answers here, check out other review sources on-line (or at Border's or Barnes & Noble's), visit the school's website and find sources and student contacts with first hand knowledge and experience you can talk with directly.</p>
<p>Good luck to your friend.</p>
