So, for anyone considering applying to UVa through QuestBridge, I highly recommend it!
I just received word that me and my fellow QuestBridge UVa'ers are going to get to start at UVa this summer through the summer session which is awesome (and unexpected news!). I also already have my email set up and am able to start planning out classes and everything. (: (I feel like I'm transforming into a real college student. XD)
For all current (and former students)
What is the summer session like? Do you have recommendations for *great* classes to take during the summer session (that hopefully won't be the most difficult thing ever because I'd like to take the summer to adjust to a completely new environment! (I'm a Northern Cali kid. The idea of a hot summer is a bit scary XD))? What are summers in Charlottesville really like (other than the intense humidity and temp)? What are some awesome things to do in Charlottesville (that aren't expensive and will be easy to use public transportation to get to)? And finallyyy, does anyone know if there's a possibility to stay at my dream dorm (Brown ) during this summer session?
I'm going to search through old forums to try and find the answers to my questions. But any updated info would be much appreciated. (: I'm so excited to start school at UVa!
