If you are a serious student and wantQuite BrightPolitical Science
If you are a serious student and want to succeed as an undergraduate, Wellesley is the right college for you to attend. The best departments are: economics, biology, political science, chemistry, and English, probably in that order. There are very bright/brilliant people among your teachers and peers at Wellesley, and all of them are ready to engage you. The campus is beautifully maintained and very safe; the social life, i.e., dating, has big room for improvement; the food and dormitory are all right.

Wellesley really prepared meQuite BrightPsychology
Wellesley really prepared me intellectually and as a person. I learned a lot during my four years here and met lifelong friends. Wouldn't change my experience for anything!

Wellesley is a great college in general butQuite BrightUndecided
Wellesley is a great college in general but it also depends on the kind of person you are. If you are looking to go to a party school with a great night life then Wellesley might not be the best fit for you. This is not to say that Wellesley doesn't have a night life at all. I have friends that frequent parties every week at Harvard/MIT/ Babson or the other colleges in the area. But if you are someone who just likes to stay away from the environment of drinking and smoking, you would love Wellesley, just like I do. A few reasons I feel Wellesley is great is because, it's a safe campus, our meal plan is awesome, we have the best professors, it's an ALL GIRLS college (makes it even better), it's gorgeous, very accommodating of diversity, endless leadership opportunities, generous financial aid, great location, and everything else you would want from your college. Given all these positives, you might want to keep in mind that Wellesley is a very academically challenging college and you should be prepared to work your ass off but that also means that because you work so hard, you are better geared for your life ahead, whether that means critical thinking or exceptional writing skills. Wellesley equips you with all of that. So yes, come to Wellesley!! :D
