The Dabo thing is really unremarkable. This was about 10 years ago. He was barely above a GA at that point. Lots of recruits on their radar for that cycle had his number. CU wasn't that high on me. Know who was? Rice and Tulane -- both considerably better academic schools than Clemson.

Forbes Welcome

W&L is ranked as the 3rd best university in the South by Forbes. It's the 9th oldest university in the USA. It usually ranks in the top ten for ROI nationally too. Most on here have probably never heard of it though. It doesn't even get much love here in VA (I don't think many of the students are local). It has a beautiful campus and is situated literally right beside VMI.

In these parts, Clemson is seen as pretty average.

Above average for a state school, but certainly not as good as Vandy. (Unless you are a person that thinks having a waterfall downtown automatically means you are the best city in the world).

I'm sorry but the University of Texas absolutely belongs with these schools mentioned here.

you appear to be on here to talk about yourself. you should post your resume and what college you attended. I'm pretty sure Clemson is better than the college you attended, I assume UAB. most college athletes aren't lighting it up in academics anyway.

i agree the Dabo thing is unremarkable and not relevant to the topic or evidence that you have in depth knowledge of Clemson.

i don't think a person who called me 'Sally' and said 'what you are smoking' is likely to be lighting it up in academics.

i never said the waterfall downtown Greenville makes it best place in the world. i've given numerous reasons why it is my favorite spot, and I've said I would like it without the waterfall. Why are you bitter about the fact that I like living in Greenville.

you attack those strawmen though. You'll go undefeated against strawman arguments.

Greenville is much better than Nashville and Brentwood though. And I feel good saying you know nothing about Clemson yet you are reviewing it and comparing to another university, and you probably did not attend Vanderbilt. It as useful as reviewing and comparing two restaurants that you have never been to.

I know for a fact companies in Virginia including AECOM and Dominion Power and Bechtel are high on Clemson grads. It does not seem likely you know what every commpany thinks about certain universities.

Checked out Vanderbilt's website. Clemson offers a lot more undergraduate majors than Vanderbilt especially in the life sciences, in addition to engineering and architecture.

Vanderbilt does not even have a business college which is crzy given business programs are usually the most popular at colleges. Clemson has a high ranked business school.

It is weird how Vandy and other 'elite' colleges have a college of arts and sciences. Clemson doesn't have liberal arts programs and science programs housed with the same college.

Many of Vanderbilt majors look like they are really they should only be minors. For example 'German and European Studies' wouldn't hurt as a minor but I think it is a better idea to do a traditional major to improve ability to get a job. German and European Studies is too niche.

Vanderbilt's divinity college def. blows out Clemson's because Clemson does not have one.
