The Women’s College Advantage

Why should you choose a Women’s College? Studies show that those who attend women’s colleges are more likely to receive doctoral degrees, enter medical school, earn higher salaries, develop stronger leadership skills, and have higher self-esteem as compared to female graduates of coeducational colleges. 81% of women’s college graduates say their college was extremely or very effective in preparing them for their first job.
