I am looking at a couple of colleges that offer an undergrad Chinese major, and I was wondering how I will be able to determine which schools would offer the best Chinese program. Is it safe to say that a good school will offer a thorough program, or are there other factors I should look at? Also, I noticed that many schools offer only offer a minor or concentration in Chinese, or have East Asian Studies in lieu of Chinese altogether, and I am wondering if this makes any difference.

I was a Chinese major. I think it would be more prudent to go to a good school (in general) with a good reputation, than to choose a school based mostly on the features of its Chinese program, which will be hard to evaluate in any event. To learn the language well, you will have to study abroad anyhow, and you can find study abroad programs separate from your undergraduate program.
