First off, I know both are Tier 4 schools before you say anything...BUT, between these two, what have you all heard about which one would you go to? They are extremely different, but I wanted to see if either had advantages that I was not aware of.A little background....I did not get scholarships at either, so that evens the playing field a bit. Also, I was accepted at Hamline in Minneapolis/St. Paul as well with $$$.Thank you in advance for any insights you have.
Hey all! Thank you so much for the great thoughts The two schools both have great qualities, but are so different. I plan on attending WMs Admitted Students day in March which I think will help. Any of you going?From what I understand from people in the area, WM is more highly regarded, but St. Thomas is definitely on the way up the rankings. The real question for me is will it gain enough momentum by the time I graduate? I was looking at the Martindale Website and saw that 26 employers recruit at WM whereas only one recruited at St. Thomas last year. Hmmmmmm. Tough choices!The religous side of S.T. doesn't bother me that much. I went to their open house in November and even the current students (when asked) were not Catholic and said that it hadn't affected them. Lots to think about!To the question on Hamline v WM...I found that the two were pretty even as far as stats, flexibility of programs, etc., but that WM definitely had the lead in reputation. Any thoughts from the rest of you on that?Thanks again for the input
