I want to share with everyone an article from the NY Times college admissions blog, The Choice.
I think it is very relevant to my personal preference for Williams. I live in an area where many top students aim only for the Ivy League, neglecting small liberal arts colleges like Williams. Barely any students from my school apply to Williams each year. I’ve had to do a lot of explaining as to why I like Williams over the Ivy League, and I think I’ve successfully persuaded my family and friends.

I want to hear what other Eph bloggers think about the American fixation on brand name universities. Have any of you had similar experiences where you’ve had to convince people of the merits of Williams over the Ivies?
