Mac has been a lot of ups and downs for me. I've had one great class, three pretty good ones. The rest were mediocre at best, sometimes frustrating. (That's out of eight classes this year). All of my profs have been friendly, helpful, and accessible. My courses, however, have been nowhere near the level of difficulty I hoped for coming to school here. Be aware of the very vocal extreme liberals. I consider myself a liberal, more so than most mainstream Democrats, but I often feel like a conservative on campus. The campus is general is very political -if that's your thing, you'll love Mac- but I find that political worries are more important than intellectual life. If it weren't for my few close friends, I'd transfer without hesitation. However, this has as much to do with me and what I want from a school as it does with Macalester itself.
