So what do you choose when you see the showcase of lovely prizes:

Amherst
Brown
Dartmouth

No explanation needed. Please vote! Thank you.

Interestingly, at the Dartmouth info session, the Admission Officer rather bluntly said that the alums take care of the grads in terms of jobs and careers. In other words, I think he meant that if you go to Dartmouth, you will have a good shot at a high-paying career. If the comfy life post-grad is important to you, I would go to Dartmouth. If a great college life is important to you and you are female or a metrosexual guy, I might go to Brown. I have mixed feelings about Amherst because the Admission Officer went on and on about their desire for racial and socio-economic diversity when the entire room of prospective students was white. My impression was that only rich white legacies would be accepted.

I personally would choose Brown, but it depends completely on your personality. They're very different schools personality-wise.

Jadore, these 3 colleges are all excellent. Personally, I just like Dartmouth most because I feel the academic environment here is very stimulating!

By Carolyn (Carolyn) on Sunday, March 14, 2004 - 11:50 am: Edit

I'd have to agree with Jamimom and Voigtrob - Amherst would be my personal choice.
