Hi everyone, as an incoming junior in High School I am now beginning to look at a wide variety of universities. As I reside in the state of Oregon, I have been looking at two great colleges within the state, (Reed and the University of Oregon). Reed seems to be substantially better for academics, but the lifestyle at the University of Oregon keeps drawing my interest. Last year my High School counselor told me that the University of Oregon has an honors college that I would be a great candidate for. As I have been able to read great deals of information about it, I can't get an idea about how prestigious it is, or how the program compares to other top universities nationwide. By itself, where would you guys rank the college as if it were a true university? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
