Show trip route
Like any good Switzer adventure, we began the trip with an unplanned stop due to vehicle troubles. We had to detour in North Carolina getting the inverter switch box replaced--a stop which delayed us 5 hours. So after getting on the road and having further delay in Wilmington, Delaware due to a highway construction, we arrived at the Princeton Wal-Mart at around 12:35am.
Friday morning, we got lost driving to the university and showed up at the 10am Info Session a bit late.
Then we went straight on a campus walking tour, led by Princeton sophomore Pento from Uganda.
radiating from New York City, and for over 30 miles on I-95, our maximum speed was 15 mph. By the time we got to the next Wal-Mart in New Haven, CT, we were ready for some fish and chips and a movie.
Shelby's College Rating: Princeton
Academics: Interesting courses and areas of study, lots of possibilities for travel and activities, biggest problem would be trying to choose which classes to take, a good thing is the possibility of graduating early, other negatives are the forced grade curve and exams after break; score is 4 out of 5
Finances: $49k a year, but lots of aid grants available, yet New Jersey living is expensive; score is 3.5 out of 5.
Average Score: 3.875 / 5.
