Grinnell - only requirement is 1st-year seminar. Your major may require that you have language or math or whatever - so it may not make that much difference anyway.

Open curriculum does not necessarily mean you are free to choose everything. Even during our visit to Brown, when my son met w/ the department he was interested in majoring, they explained that while the university has an open policy, each department in reality has their own list of specific requirements. The department may, for example require a English composition class even though the university does not.

I believe there is a scholarship @ UVA that offers a kind of 'open curriculum'. "Echols", I think it is.
In any case, most schools allow students to propose their own curriculums if they so choose, which is probably a lot safer + more beneficial to the student if a bit more work.
