My D got accepted yesterday with a scholarship. I know nothing about this school except for some reviews from Niche and Student Reviews. I have another thread that discussed the differences between Michigan State and CU Boulder. Can anyone give me any thoughts on Amherst, and possibly comparing them to these other two schools? She has not visited, which may be one reason she is not overly excited, but I wonder if it's worth the $$ to visit. With the scholarship, it does make a solid difference in money, but money aside for the moment - what is this school like in your opinions? I hear it's a big party school, but so are the others.
