Is there a repository of good Why X essays?
I talked about social environment, class size, courses, clinics, occasionally some professors, location, and academic tracks (quite a mix, I know, lol). I never did employment prospects but I can see why that would also be good to talk about, especially if they're great in a specific field you're interested in.
