Having visited and read up on both schools, I would definitely say Gettysburg. But Gettysburg is known for its strong support services- so if you are worried at all, know you can get help there.
Gettysburg, but the professors are generally there to help you succeed
Gettysburg's academics are very strong, but as stated in previous comments, teachers will never bail on you. They will make time in their schedules if you ever need help or simply want to talk.
I am a Psychology major and Neuroscience minor. Both programs are good, but require a lot of effort. Biology is very tough at any school, but our Bio program as a whole is very strong. The faculty are incredible and if you decide to major in Biology, best of luck to you because it is on a whole new level.

The students, administrators, and faculty at Gettysburg College should be proud of the school's academics. It is not exactly the degree of difficulty that makes the academics so demanding, it is perhaps the level of student interest in every class that makes learning a satisfying and effective endeavor. It is just about impossible to check in and out of a class without verbally or mentally engaging in a discussion or lecture. The small class sizes have a great deal to do with this, and to an equal degree, an all-star roster of accomplished and dedicated professors.
Gettysburg is a liberal arts college and does have a rather eclectic set of core requirements compared to a conventional university. Not all students appreciate the extensive language requirement, and having to complete two natural science courses may not appeal to humanists, either. However, if given a chance, these requirements do not have to be the exercise in mental drudgery. There are several classes in each department geared toward non-majors for core requirements. These tend to be quite interesting and not as intense as the ones designed for majors. Register for classes early enough to stand a chance at getting into what you want. The most popular classes are generally the ones that will fill up first.
