    Overall, Hamilton is an institution where your get 10000x more than what you could ever imagine! I can tell you with absolute certainty that the experiences and opportunities I've been fortunate to partake in at Hamilton would have NEVER, EVER occurred at any other school on the face of the planet! Hamilton has something special that can't be replicated, can't truly be explained, but once you step foot on this campus, you feel it!
