Why did you choose Goucher?

<p>My dd has narrowed down her choices to just a couple schools and Goucher is one of them.</p>

<p>I'd love it if former/ current parents or students would chime in and tell me why they chose Goucher.</p>

<p>DS has just chosen Goucher based largely on ineffable “fit” -meaning, I think, he had a good rapport with his overnight host. </p>

<p>He got into Wooster after a deferral, and I was all in favor of that (better depts in his interests, closer, student body has somewhat better academic qualifications), but he wasn’t having it; he liked Goucher best.</p>

<p>He always said he wanted a small LAC but in a big city, so in that sense he hit his nail on the head.</p>

<p>Best of luck!</p>

<p>One of the big things that did it for me was my visit to the school. Everybody was so nice and friendly and enthusiastic I felt right at home and knew the school would be a good fit for me. </p>

<p>Also, despite it’s not actually being in Baltimore (as the school’s website might lead one to believe) Towson seemed like a pretty nice town Baltimore is only 15-20 minutes away so the location was definitely a plus. </p>

<p>Also worth mentioning is the class sizes, the beautiful campus, and the renowned Study Abroad program offered by the school. </p>

<p>Though I was offered spots at a lot of similar schools like Wheaton, Muhelenberg, Hampshire, Goucher just seemed like the best fit.</p>
