I'm planning a career as a religious studies prof, which of these colleges should I attend?

Duke University, Rice University, or Bowdoin College?

To make it clear, I mean religious studies as in the secular study of religion. I have no intrest in becoming a minister and I don't care whether or not the department is liberal/feminist or critical of Christianity.

    Duke is good; so is Vanderbilt; so is Emory; so is Princeton. For your undergraduate degree, you might consider Millsaps -- a highly rated school, with moderate tuition costs. I was advised before beginning college, that I should take my bachelor's degree at a lesser known, but good, school, then use my success there to propel me into a great grad school. That advice served me well. Good luck.
