Just wanted to comment on my S and I's recent visit to UVM. We flew over from sunny CA... it was actually 80 degrees when we left... a few weeks ago. We were combining a visit to UVM with his drop off at a semester school he is attending that is also in VT. My S was hesitant to visit because he was insisting on a small LAC for college and thought UVM was too big
WOW!! was he pleasantly surprised!! UVM far surpassed his expectations and he feel in love with it. I'm pretty sure he is going to apply EA in the Fall. He will be pre-med with an undecided major... he likes A LOT of subjects so hasn't pinned one down yet, but probably NOT science. He loved that the med school was right next to campus and that Freshman can get internships at the hospital pretty easily. The school is GORGEOUS and everyone seemed so happy, healthy and outdoorsy... basically the same as my S. We loved the cute, charming town of Burlington right down the street. Of course he LOVED all the outdoor stuff and clubs. He is a rock and ice climber, has hiked to the top of almost all the highest peaks in CA. He is also a first responder and rescue diver. Is passionate about conservation and community service.... over 800 hrs so far in HS.
I'm just wondering if my somewhat intellectual.. loves discussion and ideas in and out of the classroom, thrives in small discussion based classes, would be happy there academically.He has over 2100 SAT so I'm pretty sure he could get in the honors college if accepted. What is this like? He is one of those kids that gets along with everyone but is very independent. He fell hopelessly in love with Vermont and I'm really not sure if he will even come back in May..LOL!!
Basically just want to know what's not to love about this school??
