And it's becoming more apparent that the school is attempting to reform to shake its stereotypes and correct its institutional shortcomings. Definitely a special place to spend 4 years, and it's only getting better.

They want to appear competitive by requiring no application fee or essay resulting in a vast increase in applicants and lower admission rates, but it's all a ruse. They have, by far, the lowest yield rate amongst their peers which is very telling. I wish I didn't go here and am more than ready to say goodbye to Mayflower Hill and Waterville.

Just know that you would have been less stressed/depressed if you had the cash to take more summer classes that would have let you gotten a better GPA in high school because taking classes during the school year is like being punished for not taking summer classes/ procrastinating during the summer. Don't be naive and go take summer classes maybe one as a freshman. Summer classes are taught slower than what you get at Colby which is basically 22 days to finish a class vs 35 days during summer classes. The only disadvantage to taking summer classes is that you might take a class unrelated to your major that gives you credit but doesn't advance your education in the strictest possible sense. I really wish I had the money to take more summer classes-it's the only way to have any competitiveness here. The people who didn't take summer classes here are either really smart, went to the best prep school, or lie. Sat, 30 Sep 2017 08:20:43 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/ME/CC_comments.html
