| The fit of a college is one of the most important, if not, the most important aspect of finding the right college. Visit, talk to other students, attend a class or two, visit again, look at the surroundings, reflect on who you really are and what you want your college experience to be like. Choose a college based on your feelings not someone else's. Look at the connections a college has and how easily assessible faculty, alum and internships are. Choose extracurricular activities that interest you and get involved. |

| HWS is like a giant prep school. The majority went there or to a private school of some sort. If you went to prep school and didn't have a positive experience you most likely won't enjoy it here. If you went to an average prep school and not one full of rich snobby kids, you will be shocked at how many you encounter here. |
It is frustrating to run into fellow students who are there because they can afford the high tuition bill as opposed to being a good athlete or student. The students who deserve to be admitted are some of the brightest and most hardworking you will encounter. At times it feels like that group is small. Overall, HWS is what you make of it. There are nice people to be friends with and also not so nice people, but you'll get that at every school. The campus is beautiful and the faculty are great and motivated. I've had great experiences with all of my classes and extracurriculars.

| Hobart is a great place. However, it's all or nothing. If you go here, you have to be there all the time. Not only does Geneva suck, it's dangerous and poverty-stricken. The townies hate the colleges, and the students (and for good reason). However, the departments really care about their students and want you to succeed. The professors are very approachable and are easily contacted, as there aren't many students.|
The impression that about 85% of the students gave me was shallowness, selfishness and not to mention they were quite snobby. But that doesn't go for ALL of them, of course there were some very nice people, but for the most part it felt like high school all over again. The social life is dull, all anyone wants to do is drink. I personally hated the cold weather and couldn't deal with it being extremely cold most of the time, and I didn't want to party all the time. If you get a degree from this place, it will guarantee you a promising future.
