What I really appreciate about Smith is thatQuite BrightPolitical Science
What I really appreciate about Smith is that they do not require general education classes. This means you can jump right into to the good stuff. I am also a really big fan of the housing system and house community. I was assigned a roommate my first year and we stayed together our sophomore year as well. Food is decent and a lot better from some other schools from what I've heard. The campus is, to a fault, very social justice oriented, which can be a lot to handle sometimes. Students are generally involved in some type of org and have an on campus job, so schedules are always very filled. It is a pretty high stress environment during midterms and finals.

Question
This school is truly wonderful.BrightUndecided
This school is truly wonderful... But only for a certain type of person. If you're not an ultra-feminist out to change the world with your woman powers and be better than everyone else, than this is not the place for you. I felt overwhelmed by the atmosphere of competition. Nothing can beat the place in terms of academic quality and aesthetic beauty, just be aware of the atmosphere.

Question
I do not recommend you going to thisEnglish
I do not recommend you going to this school unless you have established good connections before your enter school or during school so that you may get a job. If you did not go to a great grammer school, do not go to this private school because then your lack of education and what was not taught to you will be an opportunity for the students who went to boarding or private school to receive the better grades that are given. You will end up receiving the lower grades because not everyone can have A's.
