My Aunt is an Art teacher there, and my dead friends' younger sister is currently there. NC is a fantastic state, the school is great if you wish to pursue an artistic dream...that said, you'll be broke as shit and liberal arts degrees don't do much for most of those of us in the college-age-range looking for work by and large, but the school is fantastic, from anecdotal evidence. And located near Montreat, Black Mountain, Asheville...good stuff, my home-state and beautiful. Though if you are going to college for scenery or a social motive you just fucked up.:facepalm:

But for grad school you want a competitive school.





That depends on whether you are learning to learn, or for the social/economic aspect primarily. The biggest and 'brightest' schools are NOT often the best, from what I've heard from those privileged enough. The top percentage is small, they don't recruit unless you are family or politically salient, and THAT won't change for probably another generation. I bet a Yale on it.

Different careers/occupations are affected differently by "school names".

If you plan to do something science-based, the name of the undergrad school is all but worthless.  Any "√§verage" school will get you where you need to be.

Things like med school, business, law, and other majors may (or may not) be more reliant on "school names".  As an undergrad, I'd suggest finding a place you're comfortable with...


--------------------
...the whole experience is (and is as) a profound piece of knowledge.  It is an indellible experience; it is forever known.  I have known myself in a way I doubt I would have ever occurred except as it did.

Smith, P.  Bull. Menninger Clinic (1959) 23:20-27; p. 27.

...most subjects find the experience valuable, some find it frightening, and many say that is it uniquely lovely.

Osmond, H.  Annals, NY Acad Science (1957) 66:418-434; p.436
