Best College
 
In your opinion, what is the best college/university in America?

JJJ888 04-12-2005 08:51 PM

I really had to narrow my list down a lot because I couldn't make a poll with as many options as I wanted. Here's the full list:

Harvard
Princeton
Yale
Columbia
Brown
Penn
Cornell
Dartmouth

MIT

Williams
Amherst
Middlebury
Bowdoin

Stanford
Cal-Berkeley

Duke

Washington University St. Louis

Chicago

went with harvard thats one prestigious law school i wonder what the average needed to get in

JJJ888 04-12-2005 09:57 PM

All their schools are prestigious, except maybe the football school.

I personally went with Stanford because of the combination of athletics, academics and arts.

With that thought, I also would have to go to Stanford.

JJJ888 04-12-2005 10:01 PM

This is also beneficial to me, since this basically is the group of colleges I'm hoping to go to.

I've always wanted to go to Stanford, but now my list goes as follows (in order)

Stanford
Harvard
Dartmouth
Middlebury
Brown

What have other people heard about Brown? I've heard that you either love it or hate it.

Southern Illinois University!! That's where I'm going to college. So they get my vote. :D

JJJ888 04-12-2005 10:05 PM

Thank you Sweetness.

Your welcome JJ, just figured I'd give you another option. But off of your list I'd choose Princeton or Harvard.

JJJ888 04-12-2005 10:09 PM

That's JJJ to you.

Pitt.

University of Maryland is the best college there is, syke its probably Loyola College (Maryland Campus) its filled with smart kids especially girls that like to party and how can you fault that i cant.

JJJ888 04-13-2005 11:36 AM

Not quite as athletic as Stanford, and they don't have Cali girls.

Princeton is the hardest to get into. Where i used to go to HS, Highland Park is ranked #15 HS in the nation, and the #1 guy got rejected.

JJJ888 04-13-2005 11:58 AM

HS I went to last year had a girl with 1600 boards get rejected at Harvard...

Guys, I know you all have loyalties to "your" school, but what I'm looking for is the university with the biggest "wow" factor. That is, when you say you graduated from/ are going to that you university people are really impressed.

wingboy2999 04-13-2005 02:54 PM

MIT for Engineering, no question.

Harvard for everything else.

Wow, you must be pretty smart. I'm hoping to get into Dartmouth. Did you already get into all of those schools? Or are you trying to come up with a single "reach" school to apply to next fall?

I'd go to Dartmouth. Just based on what I hear, it would be the least uptight of all the schools you mentioned.

wingboy2999 04-13-2005 02:57 PM

I've actually never even heard of Middlebury to be honest.

It's kind of an artsy Ivy League in Vermont.

Xiomera 04-13-2005 03:24 PM

The University of Michigan

DaFan 04-13-2005 03:24 PM

West Point

It's not really that artsy, and it's in NESCAC not the Ivy League.

I am probably going to look at all those schools. I do have pretty good grades and I go to an elite boarding school, I also have gotten really good test scores and am going to end up with about 10 APs...my rents went to Dartmouth. I like the school, but have never been especially attracted to it. When I visited Stanford and Harvard I got a feeling like I was visiting a special place...I'll apply to those schools in two years as I repeated my sophmore year.
