Although I am getting a great education hereQuite BrightUndecided
Although I am getting a great education here no question about it. Personally it is not worth the money I am paying. I am an out-of-state student getting very very little money. Gettysburg was my reach school by fair and I feel like I was just so excited to get accepted and loved the campus I enrolled... I didn't think about the majors or anything I am interested in majoring in. Long story short I am in the process of transferring to a larger university to have a bigger variety of majors. I rather not be in so much debt and get a degree in a major I forced myself to take and I was not interested in. If you have a set major in mind and can afford to attend then go for it. But for me it is not worth it.

Question
Academics are decent - nice professors.Bright
Academics are decent - nice professors. Flattery is pretty over the time, not particularly challenging or engaging. Even high level seminars are sorta weak. There are two types of students: rich, white. east coast, non-introspective, party-hungry, boring, superficially engaged in school work, self-conscious types, and everybody else. The student body is equally split between the two. I hate to say it, but this is not a healthy environment for growth, though there are certainly good programs and people here and there.

Question
The administration is awful, literally the worst possible.Average
The administration is awful, literally the worst possible. 4 people on my floor alone have been sent home for medical reasons, i am not one of them. If you have any type of major stress or issue in your life and the school will send you home. You have no input into that decision making process they have a meeting and always send people home so the school can still be perfect.if you are rich and always happy and healthy Gettysburg is great, otherwise do not come to this school.
