University-LAC Pairings

<p>If the elite universities had to be paried with an LAC, how would they match up? Some ideas:</p>

<p>Harvard : Amherst
Brown : Oberlin
Dartmouth : Middlebury
Columbia : Barnard (duh)
Yale : Swarthmore? Wesleyan?
Stanford : Pomona
Chicago : Reed
Duke : Davidson
UVA : Washington and Lee</p>

<p>this is stupid, there's a reason universities and LAC's are in different categories</p>

<p>Notre Dame-Holy Cross</p>

<p>Princeton - Rhodes, due to a common architect (Charles Klauder)</p>

<p>the worst a comparison thread can get</p>

<p>@OP, are you just doing it by location or is it more than that?</p>

<p>Uh I'll do it for fun I guess. I'm just basing this off attitude and campus vibe.</p>

<p>Harvard - Amherst
Yale - Williams
Princeton - Bowdoin
Dartmouth - Davidson
Penn - I don't think there is one that matches up lol
Cornell - Colgate
Brown - Vassar
Columbia - Wesleyan
U of Chicago - Swarthmore
Stanford - Claremont McKenna
MIT - Harvey Mudd</p>

<p>Disagree w/ Yale and Princeton there, think it should be as follows. The rest I found to be disturbingly accurate.</p>

<p>Harvard - Amherst
Yale - Swarthmore
Princeton - Yale
Dartmouth - Davidson
Penn - I don't think there is one that matches up lol
Cornell - Colgate
Brown - Vassar
Columbia - Wesleyan
U of Chicago - Swarthmore
Stanford - Claremont McKenna
MIT - Harvey Mudd</p>

<p>Columbia is definitely closer to other LACs than it is to Barnard, even though they are across the street.</p>

<p>Columbia is probably somewhere in between middlebury, wesleyan and swarthmore, however there is a pre-professional vibe stemming from NYC which can't really be replicated. Penn has a stronger pre-professional vibe, which is why no LAC really matches.</p>

<p>Not sure Harvard and Amherst are that much alike apart from both being in MA and selective. Dartmouth is more like Williams and Brown is supposedly more like Amherst</p>

<p>UChicago-Swarthmore
Carnegie Mellon - Harvey Mudd</p>

<p>Interestingly, I've heard of more cross admits between Columbia and Pomona than between Pomona and any other large University (myself included). But I don't consider them that alike...</p>

<p>UPenn-Claremont McKenna?</p>

<p>Duke- Wiliams because of all the athletic emphasis? But I could also see Princeton with Williams.
Brown- Pitzer</p>

<p>Brown and Wesleyan were the only two colleges mentioned so far to make this list:
