Would it be dumb to turn down Princeton for Dartmouth?
I got into Princeton in the early round, and I'm starting to have second thoughts. The only reason I didn't apply to Dartmouth early is because I wanted to keep my options open, and not make a firm commitment to the school.
I visited Dartmouth last year, and felt like I'd fit in really well. I liked the fraternities, the close-knit community, the laid-back environment, the outdoorsy interests, etc. I liked pretty much everyone I met too. I come from a pretty competitive high school, and it'd be nice to be in a place where kids aren't so cutthroat, which Princeton, with its grade deflation and mandatory senior theses, might be..
Would I be foregoing any opportunities in the business world by going to Dartmouth over Princeton? Does Princeton really have better recruiting?
Also, I know that getting in to Princeton does not necessarily guarantee getting in to Dartmouth.. I'm just really hoping I do.
