Son likes and is so happy to be accepted into these three schools with significant academic merit scholarship as well as an acting scholarship at Wooster and Ursinus.
He loves acting and has always planned on participation in college at least as an EC. He is undecided about his major, and tosses around the ideas of a being a Theater Arts major, as part of a double major, or as a minor . He is not certain. He has interests in Poli Sci, philosophy, areas of biology and more too. A true undecided. Intellectually curious.
He acts, is active in student gov, newpaper, intramurals, choir, improv, with friends in all HS cliques. He will shortly be an Eagle Scout and loves backpacking, camping, canoeing, and all sorts of outdoor adventures too.
I am curious as to the opinions on these colleges for this type of student from the CC community.
We are also waiting to hear from Muhlenberg, AU and CT college. Not expecting news until mid to late March though.
He was also accepted to Clark, but son prefers a less urban campus.
He was accepted to U Scranton, but nixed it, prefering the academic major flexibility of LACs. Temple is close by, and he liked many aspects and is accepted, but he has nixed due to preference for small LAC and suburban to rural environment.
He has visited Ursinus several times and is always positive about it, and he is very flattered and grateful for their large acting scholarship. He just attended the accepted students overnight in Wooster, OH and loved it as well. He said he would rank Wooster over Ursinus if it was closer. ( It is a 7 hour drive) Due to the added distance, he considers them currently at the top of his list, as equals. Financial investment for us is the same for both, as Wooster stacked their acting scholarship onto the merit scholarship. He is staying overnight at Juniata in a couple of weeks, and we will see about the remaining 3 schools in March.
I was curious to see the thoughts of others on the comparitive advantages and disadvantates of these three schools. Thank you!
