I just graduated from DC this year and while I had fun socializing during my four years, am now discovering how inadequate my education really was. I have not been able to get into any grad schools because of my GPA. in comparison to other schools, is very low. Getting a job is even worse because no one has ever heard of the school! I'm not considered competitive because the breadth of coursework on my transcript is not considered challenging enough or expansive enough. I should have known something was up when I consistently had trouble getting quality internships during the summer of my freshman, sophomore, and junior years…no one would take me. I finally got something last summer but it was not if the caliber I was aiming for.
I hear our pain. Same with Furman.. no one outside the Southeast has heard of it. Pretty dumb actually since Davidson ranks near the top of college rating lists. Bottom line: stay in the Carolinas after school.
