Princeton University

Princeton, NJ

One of this nation's premier universities, Princeton attracts top candidates to its exclusive club of 5400 students. Where Einstein once taught and where numerous academic stars still teach, it is hard to find a weak course. Standouts include physics, engineering, literature, molecular biology, computer science, and international affairs. Seniors are required to complete a thesis. Social life centers around eating clubs which act like fraternities, except that they also provide meal plans.
