Sarah Lawrence College
"Sarah Lawrence College is a small, "atypical," and "intense" school that is "highly conducive to independent thought," and which boasts a student-to-faculty ratio of 9-to-1. Picked as the Best College for You liberal arts 'College of the Year' in 2000, the education comes at a price: it is currently the most expensive college in the US. There are "no general education courses, and no tests" here, and the "creative, curious, open-minded, bizarre, egocentric," and "melodramatic" students here usually take "only three intensive courses per semester." Barbara Walters and Brian DePalma are notable alumni."
