Tulane vs Richmond vs Colby

<p>Hey everyone,</p>

<p>I am currently making my final college list and had a question for you all. My school limits students to 12 colleges, so we really have to make a well balanced list. I recently got into Tulane, a school I consider a safety, early action. So that crossed off a lot of other safety schools, except for Richmond and Colby. What's everyone's thoughts on the three schools? Is it worth applying to the other two since I already got into Tulane? The other schools on my list are mostly Ivies and top liberal arts colleges. I am looking to study econ/government/history/math. I am also looking to get a strong foundation in the liberal arts. How do the three schools differ in terms of the kind and quality of education I would receive? Also, how do the three schools differ in terms of reputation in the job market? Where would I receive the best education for my fields of study and the humanities? Also please feel free to add anything else that would help me in making a decision. Thank you so much!</p>

<p>Might also look at Colgate and Holy Cross both very good LAC’s with tremendous alumni networks.</p>

<p>also, by safety school, I meant that I am over the average GPA and test score for accepted students from my school the past few years. I did not in any way mean to demean the three schools.</p>

<p>It really depends on the environment you want to spend the next four years in. If you prefer a LAC Richmond and Colby are two fine ones. </p>

<p>Did I accidentally delete my post?</p>

<p>Anyway, they are pretty equal academically.</p>

<p>Richmond and Nawlins are in pretty cities with a lot going on.</p>

<p>Colby is in the middle of nowhere in Maine, but it’s tops if you are into outdoor activities and natural beauty.</p>

<p>@par72 OP needs to cut out schools from OP’s list, not add more.</p>
