This is not what I was told before coming to a school like this: prepare to be trapped with the same 250 kids for a your future four years…

Education wise, the teachers are decent, although some could use early retirement. The class setting is incredibly small, too small for me. Unless you went to a really small sad high school, the class sizes here range from literally 5 - 45.

The social scene is very small and stagnant. Going to other campus parties gets old quick as you will see the same people over and over again trying to get laid. Your options on the weekend are to: A) Go to a large date-rape esque party at Harvey Mudd ( a school filled with weirdos, btw), B) get drunk/stoned and do nothing at the dorms , or C) wish you had a car to leave claremont, a retirement town where people come to decay. so please, reconsider this school. I know it looks really lovely on paper, and it might be a great school for some. Just for me, I don't want my college years wasted in this place. it's animal house subtract the fun.
