Of your list above and local to me, I would say that Lewis and Clark might be a better fit than Willamette, but Willamette is much more likely to offer better aid, both merit and financial. Lots of students who don't get the aid needed for Lewis and Clark end up at Willamette. Both are easy to get to from the Portland airport. Portland is about as hipster and liberal as you can get, so I'm sure she'd love it. Salem is smaller and more conservative, but it's easy to get to Portland via public transportation. Both would probably have lots of her tribe with Willamette also having maybe more sporty, pre-professional types and Lewis and Clark having more wealthy CA transplants. Both have plenty of environmentally focused students. Academics would be quite similar.
Thank you for this. It is exactly what I need to know. Lewis and Clark isn't even on the list, knowing she is in bottom of stats and wouldn't get merit.
Re: Willamette - does it have something so uniquely perfect for her that it is the worth the travel expenses? Sporty, pre-professional types are abundant at the schools around here. No need to go far for that. And we are avoiding many of those schools.
