I chose Williams College over _____ ?
Saw this post in the past for a few other schools and so I just want to see what did you guys choose Williams over? This will also helps people to see that unis are not necessarily better than LACs or vice versa.
Personally, I chose Williams over Dartmouth, Swarthmore, Middlebury, Colby, Hamilton, and UF even though it tied with Dartmouth as the second most expensive option(Swarthmore was the most expensive).
I chose Williams over Dartmouth because Dartmouth put way too much emphasis on frat and drinking. Dartmouth's diversity is also lacking a social-economic balance(I am not rich) and so I feel like like I would not be as welcomed as at Williams.
I chose Williams over Swarthmore because Swarthmore is $6k more expensive /year and it also places too much emphasis on going to grad school.
I chose Williams over Middlebury, Colby, and Hamilton because they are all similar to Williams yet weaker in prestige as well as in my field(economics.) Harder to get into wallstreet from those places than from Williams
