    A well- known school that gives a great education. A little pricey tuition-wise but great life- long connections and pretty generous financial aid for a private, old institution.

    Mount Holyoke is the nation's top producer of Fulbright scholars. Professors are world renowned, and some often take leave to speak at international events. Class sizes are small and focused. Mount Holyoke has consistently been rated by Princeton Review as one of the most beautiful campuses, best VALUE college, and the best classroom experience.

    This is by no means a cheap college, but the cost of a Mount Holyoke education is entirely worth it. There is plenty of opportunity for financial aid, and the college is pretty generous. You have access to not only Mount Holyoke, but also to the resources of the other four colleges, and the Career Development Center will work with you to make sure that you have a job or a graduate school after graduation.

    Mount Holyoke is academically challenging and has a great job placement percentage. The Career Development Center (CDC) is always available to help students find amazing internships and post-grad jobs. There is a network between all of the Mount Holyoke alums, LyonNet, which allows current students to contact alums to ask questions, help obtain jobs/internships, and even sometimes housing when studying abroad. 75% of students study abroad their junior year and come back, having had their lives changed.

    It is really expensive- one reason why I did not go even though I was accepted (with a scholarship that would pay around half but the local public university was still cheaper). On the upside , it seems like you do make good connections and have good teachers
