I have been reading quite a bit about some of the women's colleges, and can really imagine many of them to be a great environment for my daughter...very possibly worth the extra expense and travel to another state. I do wonder, though, if I am just creating a false picture in my head of what it might be like.
I imagine, and the websites lead you to believe, that their students form a sisterhood...I do envision that as a kinder and gentler environment overall than you might expect to find at a large, state school, but then I know that girls can be tough on each other...I know some...and I fear, perhaps some of the ones who can more easily afford these private schools, may fall into the 'mean girl' category...excluding those who do not fit in their circle, etc.
I'd love to know what you have experienced at the women's colleges.
