This was the biggest mistake of my life. My first semester I got sabotaged in classes where the whole class flunked out due to teacher incompetence. Then I was trapped there for four years with no way to transfer out. NOT being in a big city or even a mid size city is hell. There is basically no life whatsoever outside the college and the college has little to no life within it. People there are predominately neuvo rich long island SNOBS spoiled rich brats who got there from having money and getting overworked in high school cramming NOT from being bright. The school has a hard time getting good professors because its - 1) located in the woods 2) freezing cold there. I mean really what adult would want to live in poughkeepsie. The student work loads in some majors are insane - cog sci, bichem, most any of the sciences. While the rich kids major in drama and art history. Most of the majors there are USELESS in real life. USELESS. No architecture program. No Nursing Program. No real engineering program. The kids I knew were studying ancient greek and things like that.I will say this. Its a unique experience to be trapped in a horrific place for 4 yrs. Kinda like bonding in a gulag. Which is why the vassar network is so strong afterwards. We are all survivors. When we meet we just bitch at how horrible it was. To compensate, a lot of the kids get very violent, trash the dorms, drink a lot. anything from facing the horror of this school for dumb kids that as a smart kid you got suckered into going. Since I graduated I havent given a dime to this school. And I'm proud of that.
