We are looking for a school in the east with less than 5-6K enrollment and a good poli sci dept. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Tufts has a fabulous poli sci department and enrolls around 5000 students.

Those NRC rankings are based on graduate programs, I believe.
Here are some schools with good political science programs that might also fit your daughter's needs - because you didn't specify her stats, the list includes both very competitive and less competitive schools.
Centre College (KY)
Washington & Lee
U of Richmond
Denison (Ohio)Kenyon (Ohio)
Washington & Jeffferson
Hobart & William Smith
Franklin & Marshall
U of Rochester
Drew University (NJ)
Randolph-Macon College (VA)
Trinity College (CT)

Chemy: Are those NRC rankings for grad programs or undergrads?
|By Barrons (Barrons) on Wednesday, April 28, 2004 - 01:54 pm: Edit|
They are grad however, it is a good source for comparing any schools that have a grad component as the faculty is the same and many upper level classes have both undergrads and grad students in them.

Hey, what about Macalester College? I thought their pol sci department was good, as well.

NRC are for graduate programs only.
