This place it expensive. With how expensive it is you get snotty kids.

Dorms: I was assigned to the nomo dorms. They're shit. And the roommate compatibility worksheet you fill out, they don't use it exactly. My roommate and I had nothing in common. The rules aren't enforced that often. There's been empty alcohol bottles outside the rooms, and people smoking weed. You can smell it through the vents.

I'm in the film school and the first intro to film class, the mandatory class, is where you meet snooty kids. They brag about projects they did and hog the attention of the teachers because they want them to back the movies they made BEFORE going to Chapman. Everyone thinks that they're a filmmaker in that class. There is a way to avoid it though. If you aren't a film production major and not that interested in film production and just want an easier A, take the film class on the regular campus, not the film school.

You will meet spoiled kids with horrible values, and nice people that had to work to get to Chapman. But it seems worth it. We'll see.

Also playfair, or whatever they call it, you don't need to go there to make friends. The OA advisers say it's life changing, but it isn't.

responseStudents shouldn't be so snobby because they come from low class families that can't afford famous schools. Their parents borrow the tuition money and then struggle to pay it back. That Playfair shit you mentioned is like kindergarten with students chasing each other. Chapman's more like some kind of social club.
responseWhat a big lie when some say that Playfair is life-challenging. It's just like some babyish activity you can do with Barney the dinosaur. This activity is stupid and so is Chapman in general.
