Shelby's College Rating:
Campus: Decent, small campus in a nice city, but nothing exciting. It was short on old, pretty buildings, and there was lots of construction. My parents noticed immediately that this was the dirtiest of the campuses we'd been to, a trait which I hadn't picked up on. Score: 2.5 out of 5
Academics: Very flexible, but so much so that it has a reputation for being lazy. I need rigor. Other than that, a new Institute for Ancient Studies opens next year, which is interesting, and apparently lots of opportunities for research and study. Score: 4 out of 5.
Financial: Like all the Ivy's, it's expensive but has lots of aid available. We didn't get much info other than that. Score: 4 out of 5.
Other: Seems like a friendly student community, but really, there wasn't anything exciting here. Score: 2 out of 5.
Average Score: 3.125 / 5
