    Thanks so much.

    It's not about that, I don't care how many Christians are at the college I go to, I just don't want to go to a college that is religious, even though it's not a religious college (does that make sense? lol).

    Putting an emphasis on Christian values means Christian to me, even though it's not a religious college. It was founded by some old religious lady so maybe i'm overreacting and they are just saying that for history or to appease donators or something.. I dunno. I don't want to pay for "moral and spiritual growth". I want to pay for an education. Or rather my parents lol.

    i really had no idea Berry was like that. I just assumed it was just an ordinary private college.

    Graduate or higher degree programs at 'religious' schools tend to be a lot more secular than their undergraduate programs.

    I seriously considered Emory for graduate school even though I have some of the same reservations as you.

    My best friend went to Loyola Law School and had no complaints about their religious affiliations.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I don't care how religious a school is, it's still full of college students that wants to party.

    Yeah and there's a big 4 year portion of my life, too.

    Ozzy, that's just it. I want to go to a college where the kids aren't worried about going to hell for their sinful actions. OF COURSE college is about education but I don't want to be around a bunch of bible-beaters who only drink at communion.

    Sigh... well Vanderbilt is looking pretty good right about now. I guess it's second to Emory. Here is their mission statement:

    "Vanderbilt University is a center for scholarly research, informed and creative teaching, and service to the community and society at large. Vanderbilt will uphold the highest standards and be a leader in the

    * quest for new knowledge through scholarship,
    * dissemination of knowledge through teaching and outreach,
    * creative experimentation of ideas and concepts.

    In pursuit of these goals, Vanderbilt values most highly

    * intellectual freedom that supports open inquiry,
    * equality, compassion, and excellence in all endeavors.

    "

    Christian values and principals vs. intellectual freedom, equality and compassion...

    I think vanderbilt has a 4 year college and then a medical school. Lol, I don't know what to call a regular 4 year college lol. I'm so new to all of this crap.

    Lol, i'm saying all of this on the assumption that I can get in.
