Linfield College was not my first choice butNot so brightLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
Linfield College was not my first choice but after receiving an extremely generous financial aid offer from them, I decided it was much too good to pass up. I will divide the following review into pros and cons.

Pros
- They do an excellent job at matching you with a roommate. My roommate and I got along extremely well and although we both don't attend the university anymore are still great friends.

- The faculty has office hours and make themselves available to you. I have had professors go out of their way for me.

- Small class sizes are a plus, I didn't have any class with more than 18 people.
Cons
- McMinnville, is a terrible location for a college. I was out of state with no car so I was unable to go anymore. The public transportation is certainly lacking. Despite Linfield being close to downtown it was quite far from larger stores such as Walmart.

- The population of Linfield was largely homogenous. As being a minority from a diverse area of the country it came to a shock. In addition the student body was very conservative minus a few people.

- Many students had cars and the campus would become dead on the weekend from students going out or going home.

- The food is awful. I have gotten sick multiple times from it. There are only three places to eat: the main dining hall dillin, wildcat express, and starbucks. The hours on campus are really weird and off especially on the weekends.

- Freshman are made to have the unlimited meal plan first semester, I found this unnecessary. - The fraternities had houses yet the sororities didn't. I found this quite odd.

Question
If you are a rich, pampered spoiled bratBrightPreMed and Medical
If you are a rich, pampered spoiled brat who likes football and wants to be coddled for another 4 years after leaving mommy, this is the school for you!. WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T TRANSFER HERE FROM A 2 YEAR COLLEGE. The are completely unhelpful and your credits will get messed up. They will treat you like crap because they don't know what to do with students that they haven't molded from the beginning. There are pretty much no older students and the staff is condescending and unhelpful. 4 professors said they would write me letters for recommendations and only 1 followed through, even though I politely reminded them. They have some absolutely horrible professors who couldn't teach their way out of paperbag. There were maybe two professors who actually seemed to care about more than hearing themselves speak. The town of McMinnville is disgusting, full of white trash and meth heads. There is nothing to do there. This college is so pretentious it's scary..,They think that Yale is the Linfield of the NE. Save your money and go ANYWHERE ELSE

Question
If you are an upper-middle class athlete whoAveragePsychology
If you are an upper-middle class athlete who wants to hang out with other "jocks" "bros" and "preps" then go to Linfield... Otherwise DONT! Linfield prides themselves on being a diverse school but the reality is that the majority of students are too close minded and too sheltered to take advantage of the opportunity.
