Pepperdine University is one of the few conservative Universities with a small student population so highly ranked by it's peers. People think that because Pepp's student population is dominated by those who come from affluent backgrounds that we are all snobs, that is just not the case. Yes, studens are generally well off, but that's because Pepperdine's extremely safe campus, high academics, focus on morality lend to it's appealness to those who have money and have been well-educated. Pepp is an expensive institution with an affiliation to the Church of Christ, people whoo apply to this University know about this and shouldnt be surprised when Christianity has an influence in the classroom. I got into all the schools I applied to, but Pepperdine just feels like a university family. Like all schools you have your cliques and what not, but that shouldnt interfere with one's ability to make the best out of the college experience. I would recommend coming to Pepperdine over any school, provided that the student knows he/she is going to be in a conservative, Christian University. If that appeals to you, then I dont think you could pick a better University. Go Waves!

commentAfter being called by some of your fundraisers during audit and diet time, most of us conclude your probably competing behind Stanford and the Ivies. Great to go to a school near Los Angeles, some of your acceptees where the closest things I would see to " book smart." Outty.
