(I knew there was a reason I liked you, Spaulding )
EDIT: Aside from all the other reasons, of course.
So when I visited it I hated it and ended up not applying but I have since realized it might easily be the best school in the country. My best friend went there and based on the people I know who have come through Swarthmore, I can't think of another American school that has so consistantly produced excellent scholars.
And nerdphanie, if you do stick around you'll get over your grudge and realize I'm mostly harmless. You'll catch yourself reigning in some highflying n00b someday before you know it.
My bias aside, I can't think of schools that could be better (though I have little doubt there can be or are schools that are just as good). Sucks you didn't like it when you visited. Admittedly, it wasn't my first choice school, but I'm definitely glad I came here over all others.
Stanford > Swarthmore.
Nerdphanie, are you trying to antagonize me, or do you just have a fetish for being wrong?
