Smith even more so, not that there's anything wrong with that.
Vassar is near Hunter, What about Colby and Bates.
and 4.1 ??
I went to UVM and it has improved since I was there - not because I am not there though. Still a big party school what I have been hearing.
I also went to UVM and it HAS improved significantly because I left. Problem is, the out of state tuition is now $29,500...that's just tuition. My son wanted to go, but since we live in NY now...

French... Magill in Montreal... the Harvard of Canada... affordable. It's a great place to study language and a top notch U. It's in Canada though.
Ding, ding, ding! McGill is spectacular. All 3 of my daughters looked at it but opted for other choices. It's very inexpensive. In fact, a few years ago, French majors didn't pay tuiition...not sure if that's still the case. A clean, cosmopolitan, safe, spectacular city that has all of the culture of living in Europe but a 45 minute car ride from Vermont or NY. Oh, and you can transit most of the main part of town underground in the winter including most of the campus, so the bitter cold is mitigated somewhat. Admissions office can help with the student visa thing...it's pretty easy.
I can understand their position. Canada is another country and the college scene there is quite different from here. We have a much stronger bond among students, faculty, and alumni in the US. Academically Canadian schools are strong, but you just don't get the full experience of college that Americans are accustomed to.
