Northeastern University

This is the chillest school. As a private school, they can let you do anything. So your electives don't count. "oh well we can see if we can make them count so you could go ahead and do the plus program" Private school means anything is possible. At Northeastern, anything is possible. Very nice and friendly, too.

Wheaton College

What you learn there is valuable if you plan to stay within the cultural bubble of evangelicalism. If you want connections to the broader world that will benefit you in your career and life, look elsewhere or plan to go to graduate school.

University of Dallas

Great academic programs, ability to go to Rome campus for a semester is the best part of attending UD. Rigorous but excellent classes.
