Date: Mar 31 2005 Major: Economics (This Major's Salary over time) Overall, Claremont McKenna's facutly provide a first-rate education. The classes and campus are small enough that professors and other students take an interest in knowing you personally. If you thrive within a community, then CMC certainly provides one, for better or for worse. The economics courses are excellent and provided a strong foundation for me to begin a career in the economic consulting field. The workload is rigorous after the freshman year, and there's a large differential between the amount of work required to receive an A and the amount of work required to get a B. In fact, lots of professors seem happy giving Bs and B-'s out to the majority of their students, while reserving the A's for only a couple of the top students in the class. While you'd have to do pretty much NOTHING to receive a grade lower than a C (with some exceptions), it's not easy to get those A's either. Overall, I learned a lot from my coursework at CMC and the Southern California sun doesn't hurt either.
