well, what's your opinion?

Hamilton really stinks, the class size is really small, it`s located in the middle of nowhere, and it`s really kinda deserted. Also, ya cant get into any good graduate schools if you attend hamilton. They all end up at the University of Vermont medical and law schools

I liked Dickinson alot. My family knows two graduates from Dickinson know are both doing very well now. One is a patton attorney who went to Yale Law School and one went to Georgetown for business school and is now editor of the Georgetown review.

That tells me a little bit about Dickinson....
plus I liked Dickinson alot...it's a hot school.

i've heard good things about colgate, but i'm not sure which departments would be best suited to your needs.

A couple of my friends go to Colgate and like it alot. It is sort of in the middle of nowhere, but I have a good feeling that an envirnment were not TOO much is going on. Studying is easier to get to.

I want to major in International Business & Management

I graduated two years ago from Bucknell and have nothing but great things to say about it. Even though the town is very very small the social life on campus is great. Also, now that I have gone through the whole job interviewing process (actually I'm on my second job), coming out of Bucknell you have a great networking opportunities in places like Boston, Philly, and especially NYC. If there is anything specific you want to know I am glad to offer my opinion. I know most of the schools you mentioned. I applied to most in fact so I have a pretty good idea of the differences between each of them.
