I think I want to do economics in college, but I am having a hard time deciding which college would be best for me.
Here are my ideas:
Columbia- it helps a lot to apply early decision, good school
University of Chicago- lots of nobel prizes, not so great location
Princeton/MIT- big stretches for me
What do you think is a great school for economics?

Wharton is not the best school for ECONOMICS in the country. U of Chicago and Columbia generally take that title. But Princeton and MIT would be close behind.

So you know all 4 of those schools have good economics programs - go visit and see which one feels like the best fit for you in other ways. Just make sure you also line up a few safeties even with your wonderful stats (safeties for you would probably be reaches or matches for many other people, giving you lots of fine schools to choose from)

Also, is anyone aware of any special double majors that could be interesting?
