I've had the chance to sit in on an econ class, and from that one class it is clear that the professors are top-notch. The academic quality of the school makes it worth the hefty price tag.

    Washington & Lee University challenges its students at a high academic and moral level. The student-run Honor System is truly a very unique way of maintaining honesty and integrity on campus. The social scene on campus is lively and widely varied, with something for every kind of student and person!

    This university is a really great place to be for people, who are big fans of outdoor activities. The rural setting and natural sceneries in Lexington are truly mesmerizing, and the people here are very friendly. The academic life is challenging but it's worth it. Greek system is quite dominant.

    Rigorous academics with very friendly people. Professors all love their subject and will work to help you. Social life revolves heavily around the party scene.

    A very close knit school with countless intern and job opportunities. The professors are grand, knowledgeable, and some of the most fascinating people in the world. However, it does have a VERY large party scene, be that for better or worse.

    Amazing academics, engaging professors, wonderful course selection, and a beautiful campus. Downsides: HUGE amount of Greek life and the entire school follows the work hard, play hard ideology. Huge emphasis on drinking.
