18th-Jun-2008 02:04 pm - University of Delaware
College name: University of Delaware
Location: Newark, Delaware
Time of visit: June 2006
Reason for visit: 10-day conference

I spent ten days at UDel for a conference during the summer of 2006. I lived on campus, used classroom facilities and classrooms, and got to know downtown Newark (pronounced "NEW-ark") pretty well. After the experience, I can say that I would recommend UDel as a good place to spend your college years.

10th-Apr-2008 12:05 am - Wells College
College name: Wells College
Location: Aurora, Cayuga County, New York (45 minutes north of Ithaca)
Time of visit: December 1, 2007
Reason for visit: Transfer Open House

I had originally discovered Wells when I was looking for women's colleges. They had been on my list for a long time, but once they went co-ed in 2005, they fell off. After their transfer admissions director continually reached out to me, though, I decided to give it a shot.

hey, so...over a month ago i took a virginia college tour and saw University of Virginia, University of Richmond, and College of William and Mary.

One of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. It's only around 2000 undergraduates but it doesn't seem that small because the campus is so expansive. The kids there seem really...classy and serious. Still, it's not pretentious like some private schools, maybe because they give out a ton of academic scholarships. Full ride to 15% of applicants every year. Everyone we talked to seemed really happy to be there, pleased with their choice. A physics professor even took me on a tour of the science building and then wrote me a letter. Really friendly place. But it's kind of isolated and very small which can be a good or bad thing. They really emphasize undergraduate research because they don't have grad students there, and it sounds like they give opportunities as far as internships go. Flexible liberal arts requirements. There's opportunity for scientific research too.

William and Mary:
Around 6000 undergraduates, and also a beautiful campus. It's right off the edge of Colonial Williamsburg with not much else around it, but we explored some of the side streets and found a bunch of cafes, coffee shops, and enough places to hang out. I guess a lot of people are surprised to find out that W&M is a public school but it is. Again, not at all pretentious. The kids seem really nice, and the buildings are all traditional brick. Lots of campus history/tradition what with it being (arguably) the oldest college in America. Again, core liberal arts curriculum, but a degree in, say, chemistry, from W&M will get you basically anywhere for grad school. It doesn't have the city access like Richmond, but then again, I really didn't like Richmond much as far as cities go. They give you a blank 8x11 page on the application to "show yourself off" creatively. there are a lot of on-campus publications too. neither of these schools are overly sporty.

The most pretentious of the three. About 13,000 undergraduates and a huuuuuge campus. Obviously, a ton of opportunities. UVA is basically...ideal. It seems more political than the other too and more bustling. Little off-campus downtown area, if you couldn't find enough to do on "grounds." Everyone there seems sort of...impressive. We didn't go on a tour this time but we had been on one on a previous visit. It seems win to me. I don't know why I can't think of anything else to say here, but it's really just...brilliant and kind of scary.
23rd-Mar-2008 10:27 pm - University of San Diego or UCLA?
I was wondering if anyone goes to UCLA or USD and can tell me about the campuses, and the atmospheres there.
I'm a senior that was accepted to both. UCLA has been my dream school since I was 14, but I didn't get any aid from there, but got a scholarship to USD for $17,500, which is half-tuition. Since I live in San Diego, I wouldn't have to pay for housing, and my parents are pushing it on me but all I hear is that USD is extremely snooty and rich and not welcoming. I really need help...
lost in translation
Tell me about the atmosphere at Cornell and/or Washington University in St. Louis. I just read a comment on here that said Cornell is a snobby school. True?
