expected much much more from mac and im kinda dispted by the 2 yrs ive spent here. econ is supposed to be one of the most competitive programs but turns out the professors are helpful overall, but the quality of the classes is just so-so. students at mac are smart generally, but not too intelligent in the sense that many fool around and tend to drag the whole school down… diversity is nice here, but obviously isnt everything. im not considering transferring becuz it isnt THAT bad and i think its not worth the time and the fuss, but if you get into a decent top LAC somewhere in the northeast area, by all means GO THERE. the quality of mac, as far as i know, cant really be compared with many of the schools up the NY, CT, MN areas
commentDo you mean ME? because MN is still Minnesota.
NJ and MA has better LAC schools than NY and CT as far as I have heard.. Nothing compares to Bowdoin though.
