Hello fellow CC users. I am a rising senior. All you need to know about me is that I would consider myself competitive for some selective colleges eg Vanderbilt and perhaps some Ivy league schools (who knows though
). Anyways, I am looking at Pitt in hopes that I might get a large merit scholarship. I was unable to take a tour of Pitt when I passed through Pennsylvania a few months ago and only recently found out about it.
My questions are:
1) What is the campus vibe? Is it more of a big-city feel than traditional liberal arts?
(If you could compare it to another similar college campus that would be great.)
2) Is the honors program strong? How does it compare to other honors programs/other colleges in general?
