Colleges similar to Wake Forest?

I'm currently looking at colleges and I love everything about WF. Only problem is I live I live in CT and I want to stay in driving distance. What other schools are similar in academics as well as size and school spirit but a little closer to my home?

    I live in CT as well, but I applied anyways because I love it so much. As far as academics go, Wake Forest, I believe, is comparable to University of Richmond, Lehigh University, or Villanova. I think it is maybe just a little bit more academically challenging than Boston University too, but definitely very similar.

    I agree with University of Richmond, Lehigh University, and Villanova. I would also recommend looking at Trinity College, which is in Hartford. Also, Union College, Boston College, College of the Holy Cross, and Bucknell University are pretty similar to Wake Forest.
