So disappointed after two years, but I'm stuck here and can't wait to get out. Arrogance, radical liberalism and a palpable fakeness in most people, students and faculty alike, is overwhelming. Intellect is being replaced with athleticism, i.e., jocks. A bastion for spoiled, snooty brats defines this place. I wish I didn't choose to attend. Don't fall for their sales pitch, it's all smoke and mirrors.
commentThe prep-jock culture and the PC-progressive culture would seem to be at odds. How do they co-exist at Amherst? Are they in a sense separate but equal (to coin a phrase), or are they conjoined via some dialectical synthesis into a kind of unified campus culture? I'm trying to understand the vibe of today's New England LACs!

commentYou're right on the money with this review. It's too bad AC went down this route.
responseThank you for agreeing. They went that route mainly to generate more donations from sports-crazed alumni.
