I definitely can't choose between these two schools. I'm an international student and Williams is offering me financial aid but not Northwestern. Yet NU isn't isolated like Williams. I would like to do something with international relations/intl econs/journalism or chemistry. Any constructive comments would be greatly appreciated.

William by a mile.
William is farther superior to Northwestern. Let me congratulate to your acceptance to both schools. Finally, William offers you financial aid while Northwestern leaves you out to dry. It's a pretty obvious choice here.

"William is farther superior to Northwestern"
Name one piece of supporting evidence.

Where in the world did you get this information?

Traditionally NU doesn't offer financial aid to international students. but I haven't received Williams's financial aid packet yet. For all I know, they're going to give me $100 in grant and $29 900 in loans.

No offense, but can you read? Read the first post and get back to me. Thanks.

Tri, if you were accepted off NU's waitlist, would you attend?

Yes, I can read. Where did you learn to write, the back of a cereal box? I speak English, you should try to do the same....

Maybe you should try reading this sentence, "I'm an international student and Williams is offering me financial aid but not Northwestern."

Northwestern has the best journalism school in the country, so, if you're strongly considering it, NU without looking back. Otherwise... choose the one you feel will give you a better overall experience--they're very similar academically speaking, so...

I know a guy who went to Williams, he's a teacher at my school. We thought he was a really nice guy, but we figured out about a month or two into having him that he went through mood swings. Very angry one second, calm and joking the next. He's kind of a young teacher, so maybe he was a bit paranoid that we weren't respecting him. We'd joke that he must be bipolar, with the mood swings he was having.
The moral of the story is, go to Northwestern, or you'll go crazy.
The biggest decision should probobly deal with big school/small school. If the aid is an important thing, Williams probobly makes more sense, but if you can afford Northwestern, you should give it a real serious look. I'm biased cause I'm headed to NU, but from what I've seen, its flaws are limited. It's a school that's good at everything, and that's one of the things that really drew me there. Good luck with the whole process, and in the end, don't stress too much. There isn't really a bad choice on the board.

Those two schools are about as different as two institutions could possibly be. NU is a major midwestern research university. Williams is a small eastern liberal arts college. Somebody who would be happy at Williams probably wouldn't be happy at NU, and vice versa (well, that's not the best generalization, but I think the two schools really do attract very divergent crowds). I think that Williams will provide more of a traditional, east-coast collegiate atmosphere, while NU is a bit more laid-back. From what I hear, people have a lot of fun at Williams. I've had an amazing experience at NU, but I happen to like the city and the size of the university. Somebody who wants an outdoorsy, quaint school would choose Williams over NU. Somebody who wants an urban/suburban research university would choose NU. I don't see one as offering a better education than the other.
