Davidson is a pretty difficult school; there is a huge workload and in order succeed it takes long hours and dedication to studies in place of other priorities. Unfortunately I would not go to Davidson again because it's as difficult as other better-known schools, yet a degree from other better-known schools is far more valuable on the job market. I went to a top-5 Ivy League graduate school after Davidson; in graduate school the students were generally smarter than at Davidson so it was harder to stand out as a superstar in graduate school (i.e., getting As was far harder and my grades weren't as good in graduate school), but I studied far less and have had a much easier time landing jobs with well-known companies thanks to my Ivy League graduate school. If you have the choice between a good nationally-known university or Davidson, I'd definitely pick the nationally-known university. Why work yourself to death at Davidson when there's no payoff with a Davidson diploma?
 
Responses
responseSo you studied far less in graduate school than you studied in Davidson, but yet you claim that it was harder to stand out in grad school. The only real negative here is that the school seemingly didn't teach logic.
