(24%/8%) Johns Hopkins University (#14), transfer rate 8.%

Kenyon College, 85% out of state, 29% admitted, 1,600 students, most GPAs higher, my scores above or in range, pros:, great academics, close relationships w/ profs -- "first name basis", honor-code-run meal plan (take only what you can eat), cons:, isolated location -> "hardcore partying," drugs/alcohol, ohio weather is crazy, seems like it might be populated with 'apathetic dems who drink, smoke, and write poetry' -- icky artistic types, maybe a little clique-ey, maybe too isolated...

(50%/34%) Grinnell College, 1600 students, 88% out of state, 50% applicants admitted!!!!!! (34% transfers), GPA not reported, SAT and ACT spot-on, Pros, great academic rep, great dorms, easy in for research, intellectualism!, NOT isolated, even though it's in the middle of Iowa -- lots of guest speakers, events, etc.\, pretty campus?, tight-knit community, "I can literally go weeks without taking cash from an ATM", nonalcoholic/substance free events hosted, good study abroad, Cons, cabin fever in the winter!?, big rumor mill?

(30%/13%) Carleton College, 13% transfers admitted

(37%/32%) Oberlin College (OH), intellectually engaging coursework, quirky academic-type students, engenders strong sense of justice, promotes proactive behaviour in the community, you would probably just die of happiness on the spot if you got in

Muhlenberg (PA), Seems like a good, solid safety, Relationships with professors are very close, Kinda isolated, but there's a shuttle system, Allentown, PA, rigorous-ish coursework?

Letters of Rec


notes, get out of california, ucsb a vital, important step in my personal development and academic career... but one which has now fulfilled its purpose, A happier student is more productive, more willing to challenge his own beliefs, etc, Want classes taught by professors, not GSIs... better profs, too., Something missing from my education here... a need that UCSB is not fulfilling.
