Very overpriced for what you get. Many classes are good but several are simply agenda mongering liberals trying to publish a book. Town is great. Food is ok as are the dorms. Overrated school (as is Williams).

They're just names. Let's face it, these schools are known for their Liberal Arts education. We all know that a Communications major will have a tough time finding jobs no matter where he went to school.

For technical majors: Engineering, Science, and Math, etc. There are bigger names than the Ivies. MIT, CalTech, Georgia Tech, University Of Illinois-Urbana Champaign, Carnegie Mellon, and many more that produce good technical students for the industry, research, or academia.

If you're going to major in Psychology, History, Sociology, etc.. save the hundreds of thousands of dollars and go to a state university (U Mass), you'll just waste a lot of money that you probably will not be able to pay back because you can't find employment.

Arrogance, radical liberalism and a palpable fakeness in most people, students and faculty alike, is overwhelming. Intellect is being replaced with athleticism, i.e., jocks. A bastion for spoiled, snooty brats defines this place. I wish I didn't choose to attend. Don't fall for their sales pitch, it's all smoke and mirrors.

Thank you, Amherst! Post Scriptus, will not omit to mention most exemplary scholar at Amherst, F. Griffiths, Classics Deparment, who when I muddied a certain assignment, attributed it to naivete, allowed me to save face. And notwithstanding generous of spirit, I fled on a broom.
