St Andrew’s (Scotland), Claremont McKenna, or Wisconsin for New York IB

Currently choosing between the three. Please let me know your thoughts. Additionally if anyone knows anything about transfer admissions which would be best?


No career center, little US knowledge of school besides the golf course (this is slowly changing), no alumni network, certain subjects have terrible curriculums and teaching.


Don’t know much about St. Andrews but the Claremont colleges are pretty reputable and have significantly better resources than Wisconsin. I’d go with Claremont McKenna here. Focus on your GPA, network with appropriate professionals, and ideally obtain freshman and sophomore summer internships—you should be all set.


Claremont easily. Not a household name necessarily but a very strong school that you could place very well out of if you prep and network well.
