If you decide to apply and eventually come to "K" make sure you know what you are getting into. Because of the quarter system, "K" credits are almost worthless anywhere else. Accordingly, transfering is not an option—unless you want to lose a full year of credits.

And transferring will occur to you at some point. The work is tough and comes quickly. It's very easy to feel overwhelmed. Throw in a often cliquish and arrogant student body and it creates a rough enviroment.

However, there are great students and great faculty here. I've made many wonderful friends, and I ingore everyone else. You will get used to the fast pace of the quarter system and feel you can take on anything thrown at you.

If you're looking for a small college with great academics, I recommend "K", if you're not, stay away.
