On applying: There are so many articles out there. Read them all. Don't write a resume-recap-essay. Do be unique. Yada yada yada... On deciding: Amherst is the best college ever. Public schools will be like your HS all over again and Amherst is actually cheaper for me since I got great financial aid. Private universities, even the elite ones, are more diverse, but there are still tons of HUGE intro classes taught by grad school students. Liberal arts colleges have the diversity of elite private schools but have small class sizes. Within the liberal arts colleges, most are in the middle of nowhere (Williams, Middlebury), and then a 1200 student body might get too restricting. Amherst is in the Five College Consortium, so there are four other colleges nearby and always new people to meet. So basically, we rock. :) If you come here (which you will): Go to everything during orientation. Avoid forming cliques early. read full review

The teachers take a great investment in your education. I am able to meet with them whenever I need extra help. They make time for students and have set office hours. Where the teachers, not the TAs assist you. The small college feel fosters an environment where students strive to excel, yet are not highly competitive against each other. Most students about worry their own grades as opposed to others. read full review
