Duke vs Amherst -Help

[b]What would you choose?[/b]

Ok guys, I need your opinions.

I got accepted to Duke and Amherst with almost identical scholarships, covering all of my expenses.

Right now, I believe I'll major in Maths, with two minors, in some part of Economics and in instrumental performance (saxophone).
I'm a huge sports fan, coming from a small city in Bosnia with warm climate...

I am not truly familiar with strengths and weaknesses of specific US Unis so I'd really appreciate all possible help with this dilemma. :ot:

Thanks!

You definitely want to go to Duke. You do know, they call it Harvard of the south for a reason: it's ranked #14 in the world (can't remember by whom). I have a friend who said that had he gotten an offer from Yale and Duke (he only got into Duke), he would have had to contemplate upon which one he should choose.

I would got to Duke. But others might choose Amherst because its more of a tight-knit school.
